Suominen's sustainability agenda has four themes which represent the topics that are defined most important to its business and stakeholders. These themes create basis for actions and targets. Through the themes, Suominen evaluated its performance and reports on its achievements on an annual basis.
Suominen’s sustainability themes are a) People and safety b) Sustainable nonwovens c) Low-impact manufacturing d) Corporate citizenship.
Consumers are increasingly interested in responsibility of their purchases. Especially single used plastic products and marine plastic pollution are causing concerns. This creates demand for sustainable products and new market opportunities for sustainable nonwovens.
Suominen’s sustainability approach doesn’t concentrate only on developing more sustainable products and decreasing its own productions environmental impacts, but also highlights the importance of responsible business practices throughout the value chain.
"Market for sustainable products is growing globally and we are well placed to respond to this increasing demand. Sustainability is an integral part of Suominen's operations and strongly linked to our vision to be the frontrunner in nonwovens innovation and sustainability," said Petri Helsky, president and CEO of Suominen.
Suominen manufactures nonwovens as roll goods for wipes and other applications.
