The products are made from natural fibre composite which favours the use of renewable energy sources. The wood for the material comes from the certified forests in Finland. Both the products and the material are manufactured in Pyytivaara near Kontiolahti, Finland using EKOenergy. Did you know that we were one of the first companies in the world to start using green electricity? The wide operating temperature of the product (-30 °C – 100 °C) together with the resistance of the material ensure a durable product for years to come. This also means a smaller carbon footprint. At the end of the life span the products can be recycled, incinerated for heat energy or returned to the manufacturer for re-use. KUPILKA packaging is made from recycled cardboard which can be recycled or burned.
KUPILKA IS DEDICATED TO MINIMISING CARBON FOOTPRINT.
According to a study conducted by an independent consultant, the carbon footprint of the manufacture of Kupilka products and Kareline natural fibre composite is zero (0 kg CO2-eq). The study was performed in accordance with the main principles of ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. The most popular product of the Kupilka range, Kupilka 21 cup and teaspoon in triangular packaging, was selected as the subject of the study.
How is it possible to achieve zero CO2 emissions?
1. All waste flows of the production phase are re-used.
2. Electricity used in the production is carbon neutral (EKOenergy).
3. Heating of the factory is performed using waste heat flows and carbon neutral electricity.
