We have been monitoring our responsibility systematically for ten years, and this report is our fifth. We carried out the first three reports in GRI format for the international audiences. However, we did not want to report solely for the sake of reporting, but to provide our audiences with deeper information and, above all, to encourage our customers and stakeholders to look for smarter choices, both in terms of purchasing and their own practices.
Our previous Corporate Responsibility Report 2015-2016 was more narrative and visual, and we published it in both Finnish and English. With this new report, we wanted again to be pioneers: our Responsibility Report 2017-2018 consists of a video, this article, and a carbon footprint calculation with its respective analysis.
Of course, the reports are just a small slice of the responsibility work we do every day. Fiblon’s values are not just words, but the drivers behind our entire work community. Values are the operating rules of our organization, and our daily activities are in harmony with them.
In order to clarify our work to new clients, we introduced the auxiliary business name Napkin Factory Fiblon last year. Portraying our work in our name reflects our pride in our expertise and openness in our communications. The sympathetic “Napkin Factory” will hopefully reveal our passion for table setting and at the same time bring us closer to our partners.
Over the years, we have refined our operating model in such a way that it produces hardly any waste. It’s hard to improve this process anymore, so it is time for our sustainability journey to take another BIG STEP. That is why we now take the path of thought leadership and integrate this task in our customer work. We provide our vision and expertise in sustainability to our customers by helping and supporting them with practical solutions in the restaurants and professional kitchens. Ladies and gentlemen, the table is served!
