Home Company Operating policy

Operating policy

Our operating promise is that, as the largest Nordic LED tube manufacturer and with a focus on continuous improvement, we will offer high-quality products with a long lifespan, focusing on the customer, safety and environmental protection, and following our operative requirements.

Quality principles

We operate under the guidance of quality and environmental systems that are based on the company’s mission and vision. Values are an equally important part of Valtavalo’s operations – we sell sustainable products that improve our customers’ well-being and economic efficiency. The starting point of our product philosophy, as well as that of our operations, is to find the best solution for the customer’s needs.

We follow all valid work legislation and regulations and binding collective bargaining agreements at all our locations. Our employees are trained to perform their tasks and taught about the company’s practices, and their expertise is maintained with regular training sessions.

We strive to continuously improve our products and practices. We design, manufacture and test our LED tube products in-house, using only the most advanced technology and the highest-quality components. Valtavalo was involved in developing the LED tube standard, EN62776, which we follow in our product manufacturing.

Environmental principles

Our intent is to be an example to other companies in the field by making environmentally sustainable choices based on our values. At the end of their long lifespan, our LED tubes and their materials are easily recycled. Valtavalo LED products are recyclable at all Finnish WEEE recycling stations.

Production materials are acquired from Finnish suppliers as much as possible, and we try to select environmentally friendly shipping options for long-distance deliveries. We have paid special attention to our product and packing materials to keep them non-toxic and their manufacturing environmentally friendly. We reuse our production material packaging as material for packing customer products. Our packaging consists mostly of renewable cardboard and wood pulp instead of plastics.

The most significant Valtavalo environmental factor is, however, our widely available LED tubes. During its lifetime, a LED tube will save up to 1,500 kWh of electricity, which, if converted to carbon dioxide, comes up as 310.5 kg. (0.207 kg/kWh, source: Climate Calculator)

Valtavalo Oy is certified according to the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard and the ISO 14001:2015 environmental management system standard.
