We have further reduced the carbon footprint of our production!

In recent years, we have invested in the responsibility and sustainability of our operations. Responsibility and sustainability are important values to us. One of our goals in terms of responsibility and sustainable development is to reduce the carbon footprint of our production. In this blog post, we tell you how much our carbon footprint has decreased due to the measures we have taken.
We have been monitoring the carbon footprint of our production since 2019 with the help of an external party. Work has been done to reduce the carbon footprint of production, for example by increasing the use of renewable electricity and by acquiring carbon-neutral district heating and electric forklifts. Thanks to these actions, the carbon footprint has been reduced by almost 75% between 2019 and 2022. The latest and greatest cause of positive change is the transition to green district heating.
2020: 1024.2 t CO2e per year
2021: 662.1 t CO2e per year
2022: 423 t CO2e per year
2023: 258.3 tCO2 per year
In 2022, the biggest source of emissions from our production was waste management. The carbon footprint of waste management can be reduced by reducing the amount of mixed waste, i.e. by increasing recycling. The second largest source of emissions was electricity produced by hydropower, of which only emissions from the production value chain are taken into account. The third largest emission source was diesel, which is used in forklifts in our production. Water supply's share of emissions was less than 1%.
We continue to direct our operations in an increasingly responsible direction and we are happy about these successful results!
