Step by step in the right direction

While making workwear for demanding conditions, we minimize the environmental impact of our production process to protect the delicate balance of our planet. We have already achieved much, but we are just getting started.

High-quality clothes last for a long time, which in itself is environmentally friendly. By choosing recycled options, we save raw materials, and by avoiding packaging plastics, we reduce the environmental impact of plastic pollution. Taking important steps is easy, and it doesn’t even have to cost much. Use the calculator on the right to see the impact you can make just by choosing recycled fabrics.

Respecting people and the environment

Many of our clothes are made in developing countries, where the standard of living is very low. With our own actions, we can positively effect change. We are fair to our employees, we respect nature and comply with the ILO international regulations. Each of our suppliers is committed to complying with Logonet’s Code of Conduct, and most of our suppliers are either BSCI or SA8000 audited.

Room for improvement

We want to do our part caring for this great planet. While making sure our workwear is safe, ergonomic and good-looking, we can simultaneously have a positive impact. The greatest positive environmental impact we can have is by considering our choice of materials. That is our main focus. However, there are other decisions that make a difference, too.

By 2020, we aim to achieve these environmental goals:

Use of recycled materials

  • 50% of lining fabrics are replaced with recycled materials.
  • 75% of insulation materials used in winter clothes are made of reclaimed plastic waste.
  • Customers are offered an option made of recycled materials whenever it is technically possible.

Our other goals

  • All cardboard packaging made of recycled materials.
  • Reduction of individual packaging, particularly plastic packages.
  • When individual plastic packaging cannot be avoided, a biodegradable option is always used.
  • Minimizing air cargo in transport.
  • Improving our Green Office benchmark by another 15%.

Achievements so far

For 10 years we have invested in responsibility, process efficiency and the reduction of our carbon footprint. As a responsible producer, we are a member of both the SELT Association and Suomen Pakkauskierrätys RINKI Oy.

2009
In January Logonet Oy was awarded the ISO 9001:2008 quality certificate and we created the first Code of Conduct guidelines for our subcontractors.

In March our Helsinki office was awarded the WWF Green Office certificate. As a result, we created our first environmental program and started environmental reporting. We started monitoring electricity and paper consumption as well as the consumption pattern indicator. We created purchasing guidelines (using eco-labeled products wherever possible), activated the power saving settings for all office equipment and instructed the staff in how to improve their awareness and make their daily routines more environmentally friendly.

During the first year after joining Green Office, we reduced our use of printing paper (we switched to automatic 2-sided printing) and our electricity consumption, got rid of our water dispenser, and increased the supply and sales of products and services with smaller environmental impacts to our customers.

2011
Our garment factory Fun Factory Ltd was founded in Bangladesh. The factory´s carbon footprint was calculated.

2014
Our financial management went completely paperless.

In July, Logonet was awarded FTA membership, now known as the Amfori BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). It is very important to us that our suppliers demonstrate that they meet our ethical requirements by acquiring Amfori BSCI or similar auditing. The objective of this global initiative is to improve working conditions in international supply chains.

2016
Logonet has always been a conscientious recycler, whether it is paper, cardboard, glass, electronics or discarded items from its own ranges. In May 2016 we organized a recycling week, during which we collected 379 kg of goods for the Recycling Center. It was the second largest amount that was delivered to the Recycling Center that spring.

We started tracking the kilometers flown on business trips, with the aim of reducing them annually. We have succeeded in that goal.

2017
In July, Logonet was awarded the ISO 14001:2015 environmental management certificate. At the same time, the quality system was reformed to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. In connection with the ISO 14001:2015 certification, we identified the most significant environmental aspects of our operation, which are transportation, product life cycle impacts, and waste. These three factors are the center of our attention as we set goals and develop our environmental management systems.

In August, the Helsinki office moved to new, more energy-efficient premises.

2018
The Finnish Baby Aid Kit project started. The project involves partners from World Vision, Unicef, IOM, and many others. Read more at www.finnishbabyaidkit.com

2019
As an option, we offered the Finnish Baby Aid Kit textile products made of recycled plastic.

We published our environmental goals for 2020.
