A new urban public sauna Löyly was opened in Helsinki this past summer. The timber used for this project comes mainly from Pin Arctic –owned sawmill Karelian Wood Company and its lease areas in Russian Karelia. The prerequisite for this project was to find FSC-certified timber, which Pin Arctic was able to provide. Löyly sauna is owned by a popular Finnish actor Jasper Pääkkönen and his business partner, a Green party Member of the Parliament, Antero Vartia.
Audit for FSC cerfificate was succesfully carried out at the sawmill on week 33. The auditors scrutinize the documents and also visit the logging areas to make sure everything is in order and according to the legislation and FSC standards.
