Good design is sustainable in essence, as it is designed to last centuries of use at best. Design is cherished and repaired, maintained and donated onwards, which means it distributes happiness from one generation to the next.
We curate, sell and deliver design to hundreds of customers around the world on a daily basis, which is why we wish to pay further attention to the sustainability of our actions. The design world has yet to reach the finish line when it comes to sustainable practices; rather, continuous work is needed. We have the expertise and enthusiasm to go the extra mile.
Finnish Design Shop has created a sustainability strategy, which helps us to identify areas of development and encourages us to demand more from ourselves as well as our partners. We have divided our sustainability efforts into three parts: Flow, which refers to circular economy solutions and sustainable logistics, Fix, which involves responsible product curation and our role in enabling sustainable product choices, and Flourish, which relates to the wellbeing of our personnel and the promotion of efforts that correspond to our values, both within the field of design and the society at large.
Our sustainability strategy is based on the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN. The most significant goals for our operations include Responsible consumption and production (12), Climate action (13), Life on land (15), Decent work and economic growth (8), Gender equality (5), and Good health and wellbeing (3).
