Lapetek has a diverse environmental program, and we regularly monitor how we are achieving our set goals. These goals range from the efficiency of our operations to the environmental load caused by our products and the carbon footprint we leave behind. At the moment, one of our ongoing goals is to continuously increase the energy efficiency of our light fixtures. Responsibility of our ecological environment and the environmental effects of our operations are taken into account in all our activities. Our goal is an operating method covering the whole life cycle of our products, which is based on taking care of our environment and continuously improving our operations and minimizing the environmental impact of our operations.
In our daily operations, our sustainability can be seen in how:
The efficiency, functionality and environmental friendliness of the business are regularly assessed by internal audits and by the independent audit company DQS Finland Oy.
Sustainability Our everyday operations are at least as important as big, years-long projects. Our environmental work is based on the awareness and commitment of every employee to take care of our environment with their everyday small and big choices, for example regarding electricity use, water consumption and waste sorting.
Sustainability reportSince the beginning of the century, we have invested in more responsible choices and taking into account internal responsible actions. Regarding the products and activities of the development process of responsible operations, the use has already started years before their final result can be seen or a new product is available.
Nordic Swan Ecolabelling’s Building Product Database
All our Lapetek and Blanco sinks can be found in the Nordic Swan Ecolabelling’s Building Product Database. The prerequisite for database entry is e.g. the fact that sinks must not contain harmful nanoparticles. All added products can be used for Nordic Swan Ecolabelling’s construction projects.
We are registered in Rinki Oy, an environmental organization of the packaging industry that organizes the collection of consumer packaging in Finland. In addition, we are a member of SERTY, which takes care of recycling of electrical and electronic products in Finland on behalf of its member companies. The consumer can deliver their end-of-life LAPETEK products free of charge to recycling bins managed by SERTY. This is how we support the use of packaging as recycled material and the prevention of environmental harm.
