Traditionally every little piece of material used in the process of making the knives has been taken care of. Nothing could be wasted, mainly for economical reasons. A great example is the recycling of wood left overs from sleigh manufacture in what became the first Morakniv factory way back in the 19th century. These parts became perfect for creating wooden handles for a completely different product: knives.
Today we continue to ensure our material is used efficiently and not just for economic reasons. Ecological, economic and social sustainability are guiding principles for our production. We work to minimize our adverse environmental impact, to make more efficient use of energy and materials, and to create a good working environment.
We continuously improve the way we work, in order to preserve our wonderful environment. This creates both economical sustainability for the company, and ecological sustainability through the prevention of pollution. We also prioritize the use of reusable and recyclable materials.
Our accreditation’s ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 reflect our company’s commitment to quality and sustainability.
Ecological, economic and socially sustainable development are the guiding principles for our production. That’s our way of caring for the world we live in.
A Morakniv is sorted as scrap metal, the sheath as hard plastic and the packaging as paper packaging or plastic packaging.
