Minimize our impact on the climate
We aim to use energy efficient methods of transportation, as provided by our main logistics provider DHL.

Primarily, we aim to prevent the production of waste. Any waste we produce is sorted and recycled wherever possible.
We maintain waste bookkeeping and hand over waste only to transport companies that are in the waste management register and to recipients entitled to receive the waste in question. Ordinary waste is sorted, and material suitable for utilization, such as metal, is delivered for reuse. Hazardous waste is delivered to licensed hazardous waste processing plants.
We monitor and prevent negative social impacts of our supplier chain, for example, by supporting well-known suppliers and by avoiding purchases from high-risk countries.
We require our suppliers to be committed to ethical conduct, and comply with all applicable national and international laws and treaties; respecting human rights in the spirit of internationally recognized standards.
Our target is that our suppliers make a commitment with us to economically, socially and ecologically sustainable operations. We procure our products from the best suppliers in the field in order to safeguard long-term and stable operations.
We require our suppliers to provide adequate documentation on all aspects of material handling or chemicals used in production to safeguard long-term and stable operations.
We source materials and components from reputable international partners who are committed to supporting the objectives of the international community against minerals being sourced from countries which are either suffering from armed conflict, such as civil war, a post-conflict state of fragility or witnessing weak or non-existing governance and systematic violations of international law, including human rights abuses. By evaluations, agreements and audits, we ensure that our suppliers comply with the same objectives.
We strive to select packaging materials that are best for the environment and use them efficiently. Whenever possible, mailing will use the product’s own packaging and avoid unnecessary additional packaging. We monitor developments in the industry and test new, more eco-friendly packaging products.
The purpose of the ISPM 15 standard is to prevent pests living in wood from moving to other ecosystems with the packaging material. A health certificate is not required for wooden packaging material marked according to the ISPM 15 standard in countries that use the standard.
We want to offer our employees a safe and inspiring workplace where our personnel are able to grow and develop their competence in view of the needs of the future.
We aim for a zero-accident workplace where everyone is involved in the development of occupational safety. With a good level of occupational safety, we want to impact the employees’ occupational wellbeing and the improvement of the productivity and quality of work.
We always act in accordance with the laws and regulations, the provisions and contracts concerning the industry and our own safety guidelines, and expect our partners to do the same.
