Altia aims to make its production carbon-neutral by 2025. Altia has published a Sustainability Roadmap extending to 2030, built around a core of the circular economy and carbon-neutral production. Altia does not use compensation as a means to reduce its emissions; rather, the company’s steps towards carbon neutrality are based on the development of its own production plants, most importantly the Koskenkorva distillery’s bioenergy power plant, and shifting to renewable energy sources.

Altia’s financial reporting and Annual General Meeting in 2020

Altia Plc will publish the financial statements bulletin, the half-year report and two business reviews in 2020 as follows:

Blossa Glögg and ARKET will bring Sweden’s most popular glögg to seven countries during this Christmas season. ARKET + BLOSSA Glögg is organic and alcohol-free. The special edition’s label has been designed by loved illustrator Ilon Wikland.  

Altia has calculated the carbon footprint of Koskenkorva Vodka. The majority of carbon dioxide emissions during the life-cycle of Koskenkorva Vodka derive from the product’s packaging and from the cultivation of the barley used as an ingredient in the vodka.  The energy-efficient Koskenkorva distillery’s proportion of the carbon footprint is relatively small.

This year, the Blossa annual glögg has gone in search of inspiration to the Hawaiian island of Oahu, in the middle of the Pacific’s tropical zone. The Blossa 19 Aloha glögg owes its beautiful colour to red hibiscus flowers. The planning and production of Blossa glöggs requires precise and long-range team work. The planning of the new annual glögg, for example, began 18 months ago. 

Altia and the Von Elk Company, known for Glöet, the most popular sparkling glögg in the Nordic countries, are embarking on cooperation spanning the Nordic and Baltic countries.  As of 1 October, Altia will become the exclusive representative of Von Elk’s brands in the Nordic and Baltic countries, as well as in travel retail. The cooperation covers sales, marketing, distribution and product development.
