What steps is Visma taking to make the world better? Read on to learn about Visma’s concrete actions and how these are both informed by and contribute to the SDGs.
Sustainability at Visma
As a leading software provider, we have the opportunity and responsibility to leave the world better than we found it.
Through various actions, we are driving change towards more sustainable business practices in all of our operations and value chains.
Guided by the SDGs
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide us with a framework for action. They help us prioritise what we should work on, and help simplify how we keep track of our progress.
People are at the heart
Sustainability is ultimately about people.
We want to help people directly, through time-saving software, investments in local communities, respect for human rights, and a healthy environment.
Similarly, anything we do for the environment should have people’s wellbeing in focus.
We work for positive impact
Technology for society
Software that solves people’s most basic challenges is one of the key ways we make a difference. We try to improve people’s everyday lives through mission-critical software, supported by a user-centred focus and top data security and privacy.
For our employees

When it comes to impact, cooperation is key. We cooperate with organisations working on various social causes to provide people with opportunities they would not otherwise have.
In our operations
We do everything we can to create efficiencies for our customers through our solutions. We try to do the same in our operations.
