Sustainability

Our sustainability work is driven by our purpose: pioneering design to make the everyday extraordinary.

To find out more about our sustainability commitments, targets, and actions, please see our Sustainability Report 2021

Pioneering design embraces sustainability – from ideation to sourcing, manufacturing, and business development. We want to offer inspiring and disruptive alternatives for throwaway culture. We make the everyday extraordinary and create positive experiences for our stakeholders. We foster an inclusive culture and understand that to flourish, innovation requires different perspectives.

Each link in our value chain is an opportunity for us to become better, more thoughtful, more sustainable from an environmental, economic, and societal point of view.

Our two commitments, pioneering design against throwaway culture and making the everyday extraordinary, guide all our decisions and we monitor our progress frequently at all levels of the company.

Fiskars Group invests circa EUR 10 million in Finland – emissions from Iittala glass factory reduced by 74%

Our target is to reduce climate emissions by increasing operational efficiency and investing in renewable energy. As part of this target, we are making an energy investment of approximately EUR 10 million in our Iittala glass factory in Hämeenlinna, Finland, where Iittala’s iconic glass products are manufactured for sale in Finland and globally.

We will replace Iittala glass factory’s existing, natural gas powered furnaces with electricity-powered furnaces. These new furnaces incorporate high technology solutions and will use renewable energy. The project will start in 2023 and
Our target is to reduce climate emissions by increasing operational efficiency and investing in renewable energy. As part of this target, we are making an energy investment of approximately EUR 10 million in our Iittala glass factory in Hämeenlinna, Finland, where Iittala’s iconic glass products are manufactured for sale in Finland and globally.

We will replace Iittala glass factory’s existing, natural gas powered furnaces with electricity-powered furnaces. These new furnaces incorporate high technology solutions and will use renewable energy. The project will start in 2023 and be completed during 2026. With this investment, the glass factory will reduce its annual carbon dioxide emissions by 74 per cent by the end of 2026.

In addition to reducing the factory’s carbon dioxide emissions, the new furnaces will also decrease the energy consumption of the glass melting furnaces by 67%. The furnaces are responsible for most of the factory’s total energy consumption. Also the plant’s nitrogen oxide and fine particle emissions will be significantly reduced.

The Iittala glass factory, founded in 1881, is the only glass factory still in operation in Finland. It employs around 200 people in Hämeenlinna.
