When developing products, we continuously seek raw materials and forms of packaging that are kinder to the environment. We also investigate opportunities for using recycled raw materials that are by-products of other industries. By growing sales of our environmentally and safety-classified products, we are improving occupational and customer safety in our own working environment and customers' premises.
In production, we invest in environmentally friendly technology, as well as clean and energy-saving production processes.
By improving our energy and material efficiency, we are playing our part in combating climate change and promoting sustainable development. We promote the circular economy and use bio-based raw materials to decrease our use of non-renewable natural resources, while reducing our carbon footprint by lowering waste amounts and using our production side-streams.
