A Nordic pioneer
in the industry
We recognize that our operations, products and services place a strain on
the environment in several ways. We minimize that environmental impact by
adopting a systematic approach and aiming for improvement.
edita is a pioneer
in terms of environmental efforts in
the communications industry in the Nordic region. Our broad
perspective on the measurable environmental impact of our
business is the result of long-running, systematic work that
was initiated in this area in the early 1990s. In Edita’s produc-
tion activities, the main causes of environmental impact are
materials, energy, waste, and emissions. Most of the environ-
mental impact in our offices is related to energy consumption,
paper usage, and carbon-dioxide emissions caused by trave-
ling. From the perspective of environmental responsibility,
Edita’s most significant purchases are those related to the paper
and electricity supply chain.

work of the Green Edita program. The goal of the program is

ers to reduce theirs as well. This includes sustainable products
and services, sustainable operations, and environmental aware-
ness. The most significant accomplishments in 2011 were
