Der Edelstahlhersteller Outokumpu stellte heute eine neue Produktlinie vor, den emissionsminimierten Edelstahl Circle Green, der den geringsten Kohlenstoff-Fußabdruck in der Edelstahlindustrie aufweist. Die Fiskars-Gruppe, die weltweit designorientierte Marken für den Innen- und Außenbereich vertreibt, ist das erste Unternehmen, das diesen Werkstoff für Kochgeschirr der Marke Fiskars verwendet, das in der Sorsakoski-Fabrik der Fiskars-Gruppe in Finnland hergestellt wird.  ...

Outokumpu and Fiskars Group join forces with emission-minimized stainless steel for cookware products

Stainless steel producer Outokumpu introduced today a new product line, emission-minimized stainless steel Circle Green, with the lowest carbon footprint in the stainless steel manufacturing industry. Fiskars Group, the global home of design-driven brands for indoor and outdoor living, will be the first company to use this as a raw material in Fiskars branded cookware products made at Fiskars Group’s Sorsakoski Factory in Finland.
“We at Outokumpu have a long history with Fiskars Group, and it is only natural that we will share this remarkable moment together: we are now introducing the Outokumpu Circle Green, an emission-minimized stainless steel with 92% lower carbon footprint than the industry average. It is truly a pleasure that Fiskars Group will be the first company to make use of it”, says Heikki Malinen, President and CEO, Outokumpu.
“Sustainability is a key element of our Fiskars Group Growth Strategy. We can only achieve our ambitious sustainability targets through partnerships. This collaboration with Outokumpu is a great example of pioneering design applied at every step of the product’s journey; from innovative, lower emission raw materials to long-lasting, quality cookware,” says Nathalie Ahlström, President and CEO at Fiskars Group.
Outokumpu and Fiskars Group share a similar broad-scoped approach, ambition, and commitments to sustainability. The companies have committed to stringent climate goals according to the Science Based Targets initiative. Using the emission-minimized stainless steel also supports Fiskars Group’s target of having the majority of the company’s net sales coming from circular products and services by 2030.
The Circle Green production was first of its kind globally, as no other stainless steel manufacturer has been able to produce stainless steel with such low emission levels when taking into account all the climate emissions through the whole production chain (scopes 1, 2 & 3). Outokumpu reviewed and optimized the emissions from each production step from the stainless steel melt process and energy production to transport and raw material production.
Despite the significantly smaller carbon footprint than Outokumpu’s regular stainless steel, the emission-minimized Outokumpu Circle Green stainless steel has the same high performance. Outokumpu produced the world’s first end-to-end emission-minimized stainless steel production melt in Tornio, Finland in April 2022.
