ISKU continues investing in renewable energy to reduce CO2 emissions

ISKU is a forerunner within its field when it comes to ensuring responsibility of its operations. One of Finland´s largest solar power plants in connection to the ISKU factory in Lahti, is another significant investment in responsibility. The solar power plant with over 6,000 solar panels was inaugurated on October 3, 2022. In the future, a significant part of the electricity used by ISKU factory will be produced locally with solar electricity. The energy produced by the solar power plant corresponds to the energy consumption of ISKU's production for about seven months.

Carbon footprint calculations lead the way towards carbon neutrality

One sustainability objective of ISKU has been to determine the carbon footprint of the entire operations. We want to offer our customers solutions that support their way towards carbon neutrality. Our third-party carbon footprint calculations are based on reliable standards. We calculated the carbon footprint of our entire operation as well as product-specific carbon footprint calculations. Such calculations are a great way for us to bring our responsibility work to life and provide our customers concrete ways to choose furniture solutions that support responsible sustainability.

ISKU joined the UN Global Compact – the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative

“By joining the initiative, we want to show even stronger our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Ten Principles of the Global Compact. We also want to openly report on our progress in corporate sustainability in accordance with the Global Compact's reporting framework”, says Kaisa Vuori, ISKU's Director of Sustainability.
