183 kg waste from company own operations
36% bio waste, disposed by HSY composting
21% cardboard, disposed by recycling
20% paper, disposed by recycling

0,1% special waste, disposed by HSY Sortti Station

2018 
258 kg waste from company own operations
37% bio waste, disposed by HSY composting
23% paper, disposed by recycling

Amount of waste is calculated yearly based on the financial year 1.4.-31.3.

 

Cutting waste from production partners in low risk EU countries

2019
195 kg cutting waste, 8% from the total weight of cut materials
88% textile waste
8% plastic
4% paper
All waste is disposed as energy waste based on EU regulations

2018
235 kg cutting waste, 9,5% from the total weight of cut materials
87% textile
10% plastic
3% paper
All waste is disposed as energy waste based on EU regulations

Amount of waste is calculated yearly based on the financial year 1.4.-31.3.

 

Carbon footprint

Carbon footprint calculations are done according to Suomen tekstiili ja muoti ry and Clonet Oy footprint calculation tools.

2019
Total amount of calculated emissions is 28,5 tkg CO2e

Company own operations 1,55 tkg CO2e

Scope 1
1,1 tkg CO2e from using company car

Scope 2
0 tkg CO2e from using 100% renewable Finnish Kalastajan Ekosähkö electricity
0,45 tkg CO2e from heating and warm water

Beyond own operations 26,91 tkg CO2e

Scope 3
4,83 tkg CO2e from business flying  
22 tkg CO2e from used materials and fabrics according to weight
0,08 tkg CO2e from upstream and downstream transportation and shipping
Production, under investigation
Use and end-of-life, under investigation

 

2018
Total amount of calculated emissions is 38,4 tkg CO2e

Company own operations 3,89 tkg CO2e

Scope 1
1,44 tkg CO2e from using company car

Scope 2
1,98 tkg CO2e from using ordinary electricity
0,47 tkg CO2e from heating and warm water

Beyond own operations 34,5 tkg CO2e

Scope 3
9,32 tkg CO2e from business flying  
25 tkg CO2e from used materials and fabrics according to weight
0,18 tkg CO2e from upstream and downstream transportation and shipping
Production, under investigation
Use and end-of-life, under investigation

Carbon footprint is calculated yearly based on the financial year 1.4.-31.3.

 

Compansation

29 tkg CO2e is compensated on May 14th 2020 by Finnish carbon footprint compensation company CO2esto. We will compensate our climate emissions, that we are not able to reduce, yearly according to our financial year carbon footprint calculations. 

We have compensated all our climate emissions calculated in 2019 including all company own operation Scope 1 & 2 emissions and Scope 3 operation including business flying, material and transportation emissions.

We are investigating Scope 3 operations including production, use and end-of-life emissions and the goal is to include this information into our year 2020 carbon footprint report.
