Carccu, a Sastamala-based Finnish flower wrapping paper manufacturer, has long aimed to be a champion for sustainability and high quality. This hard work is now bearing fruit. The company has recently been awarded the IS0 9001 quality management system certificate and the ISO 14001 environmental certificate.
"The certifications provide us with the ideal tools to develop and support our continued activities in these areas. This recognition is the result of continuous, systematic improvement. But the work doesn't stop when the certificates are hanging in frames on the wall. For our customers, they are not only a sign of quality but also of trust," says CEO Lasse Borg.
The company has long been committed to manufacturing environmentally friendly packaging materials using sustainable production methods. Very much in line with its circular economy principles, the company recycles waste generated through its production processes and has found new ways to save energy. Ecology and corporate responsibility principles have steered the company's operations for many years.
"A requirement for businesses to sort waste came into force in Finland in July 2021. In fact, we've been doing the right things even before it became a legal mandate – all we needed to do was ensure we had our labeling on point. These kinds of sustainability and quality assurance policies have long been in the works at Carccu, and the recent addition of third-party certifications is the final seal of approval," Borg explains.
