Sustainability

By acting responsibly among our employees, customers and other stakeholders, we create a foundation for a profitable business and promote welfare for our surrounding community. The history of the paper production in Kauttua dates back more than one hundred years. We want to participate in ensuring a vital future for the area as well.

  • Number of employees: 200 (in 2016)

ENVIRONMENT

  • Ecological technology. As a method, thermal printing is ecological. The machines are small and reliable, and their energy consumption is relatively low. Thermal printing produces less waste than other techniques.
  • Low waste amounts and emissions. Jujo Thermal actively strives to reduce waste and emissions. The mill has a waste sorting program and a wastewater cleaning facility.
  • Ecological deliveries. Jujo Thermal favours environmentally friendly delivery forms. In practice, this means using trains and cargo ships for deliveries whenever possible.
  • Renewable energy. We continuously strive to reduce energy consumption and promote use of renewable energy. The main part of our consumed thermal energy is generated from recycled material.

PART OF THE COMMUNITY

The paper industry has been part of Kauttua’s history more than one hundred years. We want to carry our own responsibility for the history to continue. Most of our employees live in our company’s home town, Kauttua, which is one of the reasons an open and transparent communication and cooperation with local actors is important to us. For instance, we have arranged open house days, where the guests can familiarize themselves with our business. We are also part of the JOKI program, which is a fund focusing on protection of the local rivers. The organizer of the program is the Pyhäjärvi institute.
