Skaala Oy - Ikkunat ja Ovet

Being a pioneer brings obligations

Skaala products and services improve energy efficiency while decreasing the carbon load. Skaala aims to improve sustainable development in all of its operations as part of the Green Field & Factory programme. The programme’s practical areas are:

Sales and field activities

  • All products replaced in renovations are recycled for reuse and thermal energy - no refuse dump load
  • Overall logistics (windows and doors) - utilising shared shipments in transportation

Products and production

  • Optimal material utilisation is the primary goal of product design and manufacturing
  • Careful sorting of excess accrued during manufacturing
    • reused or recycled
    • aiming at zero refuse
  • The locations of Skaala’s own component factories and the window and door factories reduce the need for transportation

Renewable energy

  • Skaala’s own facilities are heated with bioenergy produced during production
  • Skaala’s factories use carbon-free energy produced with hydroelectric power

For years now, Skaala has implemented an operating model conformant to its ISO 9001 certification for production, sales and support functions. In addition, Skaala received two additional important certifications in March 2011. Along with ISO 9001, Skaala received ISO 14001 environmental certification and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety certification.

The environmental certification means that Skaala has a functioning model for maintaining and developing Skaala’s environmental strategy at the corporate level. Within the framework of the system, the environmental issues are addressed with Skaala’s Green Field & Factory programme. Practical measures include recycling all renovated windows and doors while at the factory, the main goal is zero refuse. The OHSAS certification concentrates on wellbeing at work and occupational safety issues, among others. Excellent results have been attained in areas such as occupational accidents.

Certifications related to the environment, occupational health and safety are not common in Finnish industry, especially not at a single company. Skaala is the only wood industry company in Finland that has these certifications.

The certifications enable standardised and optimal activities in an industrial, large-scale operating environment. The certifications also lets parties outside of Skaala know about our standardised and up-to-date operating methods.
