Our values and the requirements of our operating environment such as national and international legislation steer our corporate social responsibility work. We strive to be trustworthy: an ethical approach to business and to the society is a matter of honor for us.
In 2019, we chose to anchor our corporate social responsibility work in the United Nation’s (UN) internationally known 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We support progress on all 17 sustainable development goals both in Finland and abroad, but we have identified the following two goals as the most important ones for our business operations: 12 – Responsible consumption and production and 13 – Climate action.
Transmeri’s five focus areas:
1. Responsible procurement
90 % of Transmeri’s suppliers are committed to the Supplier Code of Conduct or equivalent principles by the end of 2022.
2. Product packaging
All of the products we sell have recycling instructions either on the packaging, on our website or on our online stores by 2025.
Increasing the share of recycled materials whenever it is reasonable and possible. We prefer plastic alternatives in product packaging in ways that do not compromise the quality, freshness or safety of the product. By the end of 2021 we will have set goals for the recyclability of plastic packaging used by our own brands and for reducing the use of plastics.
3. Product assortment decisions
We bring ecological product innovations to market and offer consumers more sustainable choices as a continuous part of our operations.
4. Product safety and minimization of wastage
In 2021 we will create a wastage report that specifies the place where our products ultimately end up. Based on this report we set a concrete goal for the minimization of wastage.
5. Carbon neutrality
Carbon neutrality of our premises, commuting and transportation by 2030.
