Made in Sweden
In 2020, Synsam made the decision to take another step in its sustainability work by moving the production of our own House Brands from Asia to Östersund in Sweden. We call the initiative Made in Sweden.
By moving parts of our production home to Sweden, we will be able to reduce transport, use 100% renewable energy, take care of our waste in a sustainable way and use fewer chemicals in our production, to name but a few of the advantages. This means we will be able to pave the way for reducing our carbon footprint.
The new production facility will be a converted factory on Frösön outside Östersund. According to our calculations, the fact that we have chosen to establish our operations in an existing factory means that 1,539 tonnes of CO2 have been saved through the reuse of the building.
Inauguration and start of production is planned for August 17, 2022.
