ISO 14001 Environmental System

Sievin Jalkine Oy - the first footwear factory in Europe to receive the ISO 14001 environmental system certificate

The leading manufacturer of safety footwear in northern Europe - we are the first in Europe to introduce an environmental management system conforming with the ISO 14001 standard. The system, which has been audited and approved by the Finnish Standards Association, covers all operations in Sievi and Oulainen, the training of Group sales company personnel, and the transfer of information between company, customers, subcontractors and suppliers in Finland and abroad.

Our environmental management system seeks to secure customer satisfaction, a clean and healthy environment and optimal use of raw materials, water and energy. It also aims to minimise emissions and waste, and promote the use and recycling of renewable natural resources. All interest groups have access to our environmental policy, and we make information about it widely available.

The environmental management system based on ISO 14001 gives us an important competitive edge on both Finnish and Continental markets. When our customers choose Sievi products they know that the environmental impact has been minimal right along the line. Our goal is consistent enhancement of the level of environmental protection.

Sievi should be your choice, too. That way you can be sure that the footwear you buy is manufactured using environmentally friendly technology. Made in Finland is your guarantee of excellence.
