Our CSR work

The best we can do for the world is to make our stuff last longer

We at Tentipi are driven by the passion to offer our customers first-class products, and we want to do so in an ethically and long-term sustainable way, caring about our planet with its myriads of life, our fellow human beings and future generations. Some important steps in our sustainability work are to reduce the use of energy and raw material resources, to use as environmentally friendly materials and production methods as possible and to reuse and recycle things.

CANVAS – BUILT TO LAST
We want our tents to last as long as they possibly can for the benefit of both our customers and the environment. To achieve this, we apply a long-term perspective to the production of our canvases by investing in high-quality, durable materials and smart design that increases the life span of the product. We also offer our customers a repair service.

FULLY-OWNED TENT MANUFACTURING BUSINESS IN CHINA
With our fully-owned manufacturing plant in China, we have been able to intensify our development work and manufacture advanced products at acceptable prices. We have also been able to ensure that working conditions are good and that wages and working hours are reasonable. Our employees are picked up every morning by a hired driver and driven back after the end of the working day. A cooked meal for lunch is included in the salary. The staff turnover is very low, 5–10 percent compared with 25 percent which is the normal figure for China. This must mean that our employees are happy with us.

LOCAL EFFORTS
We constantly strive to reduce our environmental impact but becoming more sustainable as a business will always be an ongoing process. At our headquarters in Sunne and our production plant in Moskosel in Lapland, we have a sorting station where we put recyclable plastics, paper, metal and glass. For Swedish “fika”, we offer ecological/Fairtrade/locally produced fruit and coffee and we compost the leftovers. We also intend to start a production, using waste material from the tent production.

GIVING BACK
Since we are active in the outdoor industry, we want to support organisations that work with environmental and nature issues. We also want to give back to the places where we operate, and therefore we support an SOS Children’s Village in China.
