Ensto Finland Oy won SLO Oy's Energy Saving Week competition for suppliers and was chosen as SLO's BlueWay supplier of 2012. Energy Saving Week is part of the Sonepar Group's BlueWay program, promoting sustainable development. According to SLO, Ensto stood out actively in an exemplary manner in the Energy Saving Week competition and was far and away superior in meeting the competition requirements, with its systematic and well-planned approach.
“The goal of Energy Saving Week is to share information on energy-effective products and services with customers and cooperation partners at the same time in all types of marketing of the Sonepar Group. The week becomes concrete for our customers in the form of affordable campaign products and interesting product training and events. This year, we wanted to challenge our suppliers to address Energy Saving Week in closer work with our customers,” says Sami Kokkomäki, SLO's product marketing manager.
“Ensto was the best at rising to our challenge and carried out the implementation in a very systematic way. Ensto took part in the competition with a themed approach that was built around energy-effective LED lighting. The company presented an example of energy-efficient renovation of lighting for the common areas of an apartment building, where old luminaires that consumed a great deal of energy were replaced with energy-efficient LED luminaires,” Kokkomäki continues.
“Also the product campaign was successful: Ensto's AVR320 LED is a good and powerful luminaire. In cooperation with SLO offices, Ensto also organized not one but six individual events,” Kokkomäki says of Ensto's performance in the competition.
In both SLO's and Ensto's product ranges, priority is given to products that are environment-friendly to manufacture or use. In SLO's product range, these products are called BlueWay products. Their selection considers the following elements: energy savings, recyclability, packing method, materials, and product lifetime. In terms of product sales, Ensto is SLO's seventh largest BlueWay supplier.
“SLO's Energy Saving Week is an excellent way to inform our end customers about the significance of responsible choices of products and encourage them to act in a way that promotes sustainable development,” says Juha Käyrä from Ensto.
