WE’RE COMMITTED TO BE BETTER

 

Our vision is to be the trusted guide in the world of outdoor sports and adventure – for you and generations to come. 

Doing right for the planet

From thriving oceans, wild rivers and up to glaciated peaks, we all – from the smallest to largest species – depend on the web of life. Suunto and our community of divers and outdoor lovers understand there’s no adventure without it. Protecting our playground is our shared responsibility.

We know we are not perfect, but we are committed to be better.

THREE CORE ELEMENTS

ECONOMIC

1936. That’s when we began, more than 80 years later Suunto is still innovating and supporting adventure. Profit alone is not enough; we balance that with being a fair partner throughout the value chain, being a stable high tech employer, and always valuing quality-driven design.

SOCIAL

The needs of our employees are important to us. Encouraging a rewarding work-life balance is part of our culture. Beyond our walls, we know our products help sport enthusiasts on every continent live active, healthy lives. We also conduct regular social audits to confirm our suppliers comply with our ethical policy. 

ENVIRONMENTAL

We believe in producing long lasting, and whenever possible, repairable products. This means sometimes going against tech development trends. We’re serious about reducing our environmental impacts so we challenge ourselves to do things differently. 

Walking the talk


NO MORE HOT AIR

It’s our responsibility to protect and restore our playground, a thriving planet, for future generations. Being serious about reducing our impact requires serious work. The planet doesn’t need any more hot air. We can all become better.

We need the natural world. And now our planet needs us to do right for it. Suunto minimises its impact through responsible design, operations, manufacturing and delivery of high quality products.

REAL FACTS, REAL ACTION

Decreasing emissions

Our emissions have been decreasing over the last 10 years. We measure our carbon footprint according to the internationally recognized Greenhouse Gas Protocol (covering Scope 1 & 2, and parts of Scope 3). We are extending the reporting of our emissions to cover bigger part of our supply chain and we aim to set the Science Based Targets for reducing our emissions.

Repairable products

We design our watches to be tough, durable and long-lasting. Our design philosophy is to make them repairable because minimizing waste and lengthening their lifecycle is more sustainable and cost effective. We maintain a high-quality service center network that repairs our watches. With a Suunto at your side, you can count on a long term partnership.

Refurbished watches

When a customer sends a product back, whenever we can we refurbish it and send it back out into the world for a second life. This reduces electronic waste and ensures precious resources are reused.

Renewable energy

Suunto factory & HQ are now using 100% renewable energy which means all products made in Finland are also made with 100% renewable, carbon free energy. That was 85% of all products in 2021. This adds to the endeavor to minimize our emissions, for which the bedrock is manufacturing high-quality, long-lasting products.

ISO 14001 certified

Suunto has been ISO14001 certified company since 2013 which means our company has ISO-approved Environmental Management System in place and we are audited by a third-party auditing company every year. The system ensures we assess the possible environmental risks and impacts regularly, mitigate them, track and document the progress. You can read our Environmental Policy here.

Less waste

We track the scrapping of our waste, and ensure it goes to the right places. The amount of waste in our operations has been steadily decreasing.  There always remains room for improvement.

International warranty

We are committed to quality, which is why all our watches and dive computers come with a two year warranty period. Dive computers also come with a five year warranty period for failures attributable to the depth measurement (pressure) sensor. Our international warranty means customers can have their Suunto product repaired under warranty in any Suunto authorized service center around the world, not just in the country where they purchased the product.

Responsible sourcing

Suunto is committed to the highest standards of product quality, and to responsible sourcing practices in line with International Labour Organization (ILO) Standards and the United Nation's Universal Declaration on Human Rights. Our supplier selection is based on Supplier Requirements that include adherence to Suunto's Code of Conduct and Policies. The Ethical Policy and Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement describe our commitment towards supply chain due diligence on human rights and the steps for continuous improvement.

Made in Finland

We are proud to say we are based in Finland. And just like for our Finnish founder Tuomas Vohlonen, the best is never enough for us. We have our own factory in Vantaa, Finland where the vast majority of our devices are made to the highest standards by our skilled staff. In 2021 this was more than 85% of our products.

Better together


WE WORK WITH ATHLETES WHO CARE

A holistic approach to sustainability aims to increase positive effects, not just reduce negative ones. These are called, respectively, our handprint and footprint. We aim to tread lightly, and be a force for good. 

We believe in the power of community. Together, we can affect change by raising our voices and taking real action. Our ambassadors care as much as we do.

OUR ATHLETES

Jill Heinerth

Underwater explorer Jill Heinerth has dived in icebergs and the Arctic Circle to document our changing planet. These days, educating the public about the growing threat of climate change is what calls her to explore. Suunto supports her expeditions with our dive computers.

Greg Hill

Ski mountaineer Greg Hill is always in search of peaks to climb and pow to shred. Over the years he’s evolved into a sustainability champion, even embarking on an Electric Adventure to prove you don’t need fossil fuels to get into the backcountry. He’s an example to all.

William Trubridge

He’s the first person to swim underwater across one of the world’s major channels. He did it to raise awareness about the plight of a threatened dolphin species. World champion freediver William Trubridge also lends his voice to reducing plastic pollution. We’re proud to support William’s work.
