At Finncont, we want to be involved in making responsible and sustainable economy a reality.
To us, responsibility means minimising the environmental impact of our own business and making responsibility part of all of our activities.
Minimising the environmental impact
We minimise the harmful effects that our operations have on the environment and constantly improve the management of environmental matters. We develop our production and products in a way that minimises their adverse effects on the environment. Improving energy-efficiency and reducing carbon footprint are among our main objectives. We use green energy in production.
Recycling at Finncont
We are experts in circular economy and we provide our customers guidance in issues such as the optimal implementation of waste management and recycling. We also align our operations with this guidance and we implement innovative recycling using our own products both in production and at the office. For further information, please read our expert articles here.
Examples of recycling in our operations include:
We already recycle more than 99% of the raw materials in our own production. During 2020, we also made our sorting of cardboard more efficient, which resulted in the reduction of energy fraction by 30%. We have an ambitious goal to reduce the amount of waste in our own operations by at least ten per cent every year.
We design and manufacture durable and environmentally sustainable products and solutions with a long life cycle. With the help of our extensive and competent network of suppliers, we find functional and high-quality raw materials as well as components for every product application, of course without compromising on quality. Our products are safe and tested, and they allow you to be progressive in implementing the circular economy with minimal environmental impact.
Our raw material choices and production methods have been developed from the start in a way that ensures we only deliver responsible, tested and approved products. All steps of our process are designed and implemented in such a way that we can talk about having green DNA
