Purposeful Development for the Environment
Juvenes Corporation’s Environmental programme was started in 1997 to reduce the company’s environmental effects. It defined the environmental goals the corporation wishes to achieve. The programme is updated regularly in pursuance of auditing. Audits have been conducted in 1999, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2008, and 2010.
In the 21st century, the main goal of Juvenes Corporation has been continuous development. Purposeful, determined work together with our customers and our quality standards has enabled us to improve all our operations. Our quality systems have been developed in accordance with the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. Our restaurant services fulfill all qualifications for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and printing services qualify for ISO 9001. Juvenes Print has also received the Nordic Swan ecolabel. Juvenes Catering has received the Rôtisseurs Blazon, a significant symbol of quality service, as the first catering service in Finland.
The environmental programme is an important part of Juvenes’ quality system. So far, it has helped us improve our recycling systems and logistic processes and favor environmentally friendly acquisitions. We have also improved our online communications and website to further reduce environmental effects. Publishing our environmental programme has increased our customers’ knowledge about the environmental effects of the company’s operations.
The audits conducted have helped us recognize and fix flawed procedures, as well as correctly evaluate the challenges and objectives of our goals. Our environmental programme will not be terminated when current goals are met. Instead, we are constantly looking to further improve our operations and detect new environmental issues to work on. To support us with this challenge, we have trained an Environmental Manager for the corporation.
As operational environments change, the significance of the environmental programme and its audits will be even greater. In the future, we will stress this constant development in our everyday actions, such as recycling. We take environmental issues into account in all our decision-making, even when it makes the costs higher. When making new investments and acquisitions, we are committed to choosing the most environmentally friendly, developed, and cost-effective solutions. All our services are produced with as few environmental effects as possible.
