Sustainability

Environment

social

corporate governance

Greenled’s sustainability strategy takes into account the environmental, social and governance dimensions. Our strategy is built around three main points that we are determined to take forward in our operations:

  • We provide environmentally friendly, long life cycle products and services
  • We create safety and well-being
  • We increase awareness and transparency in our operations

WE PROVIDE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY, LONG LIFE CYCLE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Minimising the life cycle carbon footprint of products and services
In order to achieve our goal, we determine the current life cycle carbon footprint of products and services. From 2022 onwards, the calculation of the life cycle carbon footprint will be part of the design process for new products and services.

Development of life cycle services
We are developing the concept of light as a service. When we produce light as a service, we are responsible for the functionality and carbon footprint of the lighting solution. By doing this, we are able to ensure that our products use as little energy as possible and retain their lumen output for as long as possible. This keeps the carbon footprint of our solution as low as possible throughout its life cycle.

WE CREATE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING

Continuous improvement of occupational safety and well-being at work
We actively monitor the indicators of occupational safety and sickness absences, and we react to all close calls in order to prevent accidents at work. We carry out regular job satisfaction surveys for our staff, to which 94% of our employees responded in 2021. For us, job satisfaction surveys are one of the most important highlights of the year, on the basis of which we develop our management and operating practices.

Understanding the effects of light and supporting the circadian rhythm
As a company, we want to raise awareness of the impact of light on people’s well-being. This is reflected in our customer encounters, marketing and internal communications. We have implemented human-centric lighting solutions for our own production facilities and for our customers’ premises. These solutions support the natural circadian rhythm and thus improve coping, alertness and the overall well-being of personnel.

Increasing the sense of community and openness in the workplace through teamwork
We strongly believe that the well-being of our work community will be improved by increasing the sense of community and openness. All of our locations are designed to encourage teamwork and effectively enable both physical and remote encounters.

WE INCREASE AWARENESS AND TRANSPARENCY IN OUR OPERATIONS

Governance structures and operating principles
Good governance is the basis of genuine sustainability. We act in accordance with our Ethical Code of Conduct as well as laws and regulations and treat each other fairly. We use a quality management and environmental management system certified by SGS Finland, which covers management and governance practices.

In order to increase awareness and transparency for our customers and employees, we will produce our first sustainability report in 2022.

Building a sustainable supply chain together with our partners
A sustainable supply chain requires increased awareness and transparency among our partners. We ensure that our partners are committed to our Ethical Code of Conduct and are aware of our sustainability strategy. We determine the origin of materials and require that our partners take sustainability aspects into account in their operations.

We recognise the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have identified five objectives that we can contribute the most to:
