Corporate Responsibility and sustainable development


Corporate Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility is the basis of our operations. We act responsibly and follow ethically acceptable principles in all our actions, both in the work community and with our partners.

A responsible way of working is at the core of Halva's family business. Responsibility means profitable long-term business for Halva, the owners' strong commitment to the company's daily work, pride in their own work, taking care of their employees, long-term employment relationships and paying taxes to Finland. Raw materials and packaging materials are only purchased from ethically and socially responsible suppliers.

The world's best licorice is made in Finland, because licorice is produced in an ethically sustainable way: the products are of high quality and safe. The same applies to all the sweets we make. The background of what we do is the values ​​of family entrepreneurship, adopted by the entire staff.

Halva is thus a socially responsible, social operator.

Sustainability – smaller carbon footprint

We invest in sustainable development by reducing emissions, using more environmentally friendly packaging materials and improving waste recycling:

  • We will increase the use of recyclable plastic.
  • We will reduce the use of traditional plastics by switching
    to wood-based, carbon-neutral materials.
  • We have completely abandoned the use of palm oil.
  • Production by-products are made into feed for farmed animals.

We have taken a number of significant measures to reduce
the carbon footprint of our energy consumption:

  • We only use 100% renewable electricity.
  • We only use 100 % renewable district heating.

Our goal is that by 2025, our business will be completely carbon neutral.

Through our sustainable and responsible work, the world’s best licorice is produced in Finland by Halva.
