Responsible selections

Sustainable products as part of department store selection

Stockmann department stores offer an extensive range of products, consisting of more than 1.7 million product titles. Our product range offers consumers opportunities to make responsible purchase choices. In the areas of fashion, cosmetics and household products, the choice includes products made from organic and recycled materials and products with an eco-label, such as the Swan Label, energy label or the Ökotex 100 label.

Stockmann encourages its sales persons to find out about the choice of eco-labelled products in their areas of responsibility and to offer them to environmentally conscious customers if necessary. Information for staff is available on the Stockmann intranet concerning the various labelling schemes on environmental aspects, sustainability and origin. Sales persons’ knowledge of eco-labels is surveyed annually in audits and is recorded in the audit reports.

Sustainable materials in our garments

Responsibility is integral to the processes involved in clothing design and procurement of materials and products, and these processes are part of the operations of the Stockmann Group. We are set to systematically increase the amount of environmentally less harmful, or sustainable, raw materials in the Group’s own brand fashion products, such as organic cotton, lyocell and recycled fibres. We define sustainable cotton as the use of organic cotton, Better cotton (BCI-cotton) or recycled cotton.

Brands that have garments made of organic cotton for children can be found from Papu, Mini Rodini, R-Collection, Kaiko, Name It and Tommy Hilfiger, for women from brands Samsoe & Samsoe, R-Collection, Papu, Globe Hope, Junarose, Dr. Denim and Filippa K; and for men from brands Knowledge Cotton Apparel, Billebeino, MAKIA, Levi's and Pure Waste.

We also offer products made of recycled material, such as women's sports trunks, men's wool coat from recycled wool and Kånken-backpacks, which are made of 95% recycled material.

For example, our home range includes organic cotton sheets, pillows and laundry bags, and Fiskars Rotisser pans and trays, which are made of 70% recycled materials. There are also many eco-friendly alternatives to the cleaning product range, such as the biodegradable Method and Ecover products.
