Renewable biogas to Marimekko's fabric printing
mill in Helsinki
4 December 2015
At Marimekko we
have taken many steps to mitigate climate change. We source renewable
electricity, we constantly strive to improve energy efficiency in our
operations, and we are committed to halve the carbon dioxide emissions from our
own operations by 2020.
Just before the
Paris COP21 climate conference we decided to make a shift from natural gas to
Finnish, environmentally friendly biogas made with renewable raw materials in
our own printing mill in Helsinki.
With biogas, the
carbon dioxide emissions from our printing mill in Helsinki will be reduced by
over 700 tonnes per year, which equals to the emissions from around 300 cars.
Our aim is to create value through our operations for Marimekko's friends now
and in the future. At the same time we have an obligation to do everything we
possibly can for a more sustainable future.
Biogas used is
produced in Finland from bio waste from farming, food processing industry,
grocery stores and households which makes it truly local closed-loop energy.
