In Warmos operations, we pay special attention to the environment, the quality of operations and products, and social responsibility. The products are of high quality and environmentally friendly, the customer service is excellent and the promises are fulfilled. Corporate responsibility must be more than promises - it must be implemented concretely.
Warmos heaters meet the strictest quality, safety and environmental requirements. Warmos is a member of Elker, a service company for organising the collection and recycling of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in Finland. All our metal and plastic parts can be recycled. Electrical and electronic products are subject to the recycling fee set by the EU directive, therefore the recycling fee is included in the price of our products.
Warmos has launched a packaging modernization project aimed at designing a more ecological packaging concept based on recycled materials. The carbon footprint of the heat transfer oil used in the heaters is small considering its whole lifecycle. The heaters are designed to last from one generation to the next. Still, we are looking for an even more environmentally friendly alternative with similar features. We are investing in the development of our thermostats, so that we can continue to meet the tightening efficiency requirements and, for example, optimize energy savings.
For Warmos, social responsibility means good practices in relation to all stakeholders. We take care of our staff and their well-being. The Association for Finnish Work has granted Warmos Heating Ltd both the Finnish Key Flag Symbol and the Finnish Social Enterprise Mark, which indicate a commitment to socially responsible economic activities and Finnish production. Most of our profits are channelled towards advancing social good, for example, by employing people who face difficulties finding their place on the labour market. We work with educational institutions to improve the region’s well-being and local services. We hire locally, which brings economic stability to the region and reduces commuting emissions.
Warmos invests in quality control to minimize the number of defective products and the amount of waste. If, however, defects are found, the products can be sold as second quality. This way a functioning heater with quality deviations on the surface can still bring warmth and joy, and heat up a space where efficiency is more important than visuality.
