Sustainability is a multidimensional issue, and different aspects of it are important to different customers. That is why we at Suominen have developed a wide offering of sustainable nonwovens that meet the different sustainability needs of our customers – and end users.
Suominen’s vision is to be the frontrunner for nonwovens innovation and sustainability. We want to do our share in addressing the most topical global environmental concerns of our time, including scarcity of resources, climate change and marine plastic pollution. By constantly developing new and innovative solutions with a reduced environmental impact, we are able to provide a wide range of sustainable nonwovens for our customers.
Innovation and sustainability are certainly nothing new for Suominen. Already ten years ago we launched our compostable and biodegradable BIOLACE® family of products produced solely from renewable raw materials. Since then, we have further developed and expanded our sustainable offering; our comprehensive Sustainable Product Portfolio was created in 2018.
Sustainability categories for Suominen’s nonwovens
Suominen’s Sustainable Product Portfolio consists of products made from renewable, recycled and/or plastic-free raw materials as well as compostable and totally dispersible nonwovens. By offering solutions in these different sustainability categories, we can meet the varying sustainability-related needs of our customers and end uses.
Our sustainability categories
From our Sustainable Product Portfolio, our customers can choose the sustainability category that is most relevant to them and then decide which of the products in the category are most suitable for their end products. At the same time, we also have a number of sustainable nonwoven alternatives available for various end uses, including baby, household, hygiene, medical, personal care and workplace.
