In 2019, the SK Škrlj company applied for the public tender "Promoting sustainable business strategic transformation and the development of new business models in Slovenian companies for an easier integration into the global value chains", whose main purpose is to support small and medium-sized companies that wish to include sustainable business aspects in their business/corporate strategies and business models and use sustainable business strategy transformation to achieve a higher added value and competitive advantage in the positioning of the final products and services on the market and to improve the integration into the global value chains.
This project is divided into two parts. The first part (Part A) was carried out under the guidance of Mrs. Tatjana Fink and with the support of the public agency SPIRIT Slovenija. A project team was assembled and during the last few months, this group met at weekly workshops and developed a company strategy for 2020-2025, which is based primarily on sustainable business and bares in mind the goals of the UN, the OECD, the EU and Slovenia. That is how we created a sustainable business strategy, which, in the long run, will benefit the society, the environment, and the economy, while also increasing the company's business success.
We have set clear goals for the future, which is why we organized a collective workshop to conclude Part A of this project and share our newly defined vision and company values with our entire team of co-workers, as the only way to successfully implement the new strategy is to include and cooperate with all employees.
We are aware that as a company we carry a great deal of social responsibility. We know that sustainable development is the right way forward for the company, employees, and customers, as well as our environment.
In the second part (Part B) we are going to design and create an operational pilot device for the extraction and dissolution of cellulosic materials. A particular emphasis will be placed on the selection and development of advanced materials.
