27.3.2015 - SharpCell joins an energy efficiency agreement

SharpCell joins an energy efficiency agreement. The promotion of sustainable development is one of the cornerstones of our company´s operations.

The reuse of our products in energy production, renewable raw materials and an emissions-free production process enable us to put only a very small load on the environment. Improving energy efficiency is an important factor in preventing climate change, and we want to be involved in it. At the same time, through a voluntary agreement we are meeting the obligations set for Finland by the EU´s Energy Efficiency Directive.

Finland has agreed to a target of 9 % energy savings by 2016. This is calculated from the level of the early years of the 2000s. The companies and organisations that have joined the agreement set their own targets for the improvement of their use of energy, implement the measures necessary to achieve them and report annually about their implementation of energy efficiency measures and other actions aimed at its improvement. The principle of continuous improvement is central to the agreements made.

Before joining the agreement, our company carried out a study into its energy use and drew up a plan of measures to improve it. Planning work covering the production process, building systems and logistics functions was carried out based on models drawn up by Motiva and certification institutions in the energy sector. In addition to reducing environmental impact, savings in ever-increasing energy costs are also being targeted through these improvement measures.

In accordance with the agreement, we report on our improvement measures and the results that they have brought about in a monitoring system maintained by Motiva. As a demonstration of Sharpcell’s acceptance into the energy efficiency agreement, Motiva has granted our company the right to use a symbol showing that we are involved.

6.8.2014 - SharpCell receives FSC® Certificate

SharpCell receives FSC® Certificate. FSC certification signifies that SharpCell only uses wood from well-managed forests as its raw material.

“SharpCell was audited in June 2014, and deliveries of certified products to customers will begin in July or August.SharpCell’s certified AirLaid material will be an ecological and natural choice for our customers,” says Quality Control Manager Risto Pollari.

“With this certification, SharpCell has joined a chain that ensures our customers the certainty that only wood from sustainably managed forests has been used in manufacturing our products. Each batch of raw material now undergoes a vigorous control process to confirm its origin. The FSC certification proves to our customers that SharpCell takes its responsibility for the environment seriously," Pollari says.

FSC® certification shows that the wood originates from well-managed forests. The assessment includes an examination of the use of the forest based on ecological, ethical and social grounds. Because the supply chain for raw wood material is continuously monitored, customers can have confidence in the certified products.

FSC certification traces the whole chain of production for the wood, from the forest to the end user. This way FSC combines responsible wood production and consumption and gives consumers the opportunity to make socially and ecologically responsible buying decisions. The certified and controlled raw material does not get mixed with uncontrolled material at any stage of the transport, production or distribution chain. Monitoring also prevents the use of contested non-certified sources of material in the supply chain. Contested sources refer to illegal loggings, ecologically important forests, genetically modified trees or forests that are linked to social conflicts.

Companies with the Chain of Custody Certification can produce certified products and label them with the FSC brand. SharpCell is entitled to use this label on their products from July 2014. The certificate will be valid for five years and includes annual audits. The certification system was developed by the ForestStewardship Council (FSC®), whose aim it is to promote responsible forestry worldwide.
