A Rovaniemi based company, ASV Arctic Smart Village Ltd, has been granted the right to use both the Key Flag and the Finnis Social Enterprise badges as a sign of its service produced and employed in Finland and the successful combination of business and social goals. ASV Arctic Smart Village Ltd aims to increase the vitality of the countryside.
ASV Arctic Smart Village Ltd carries out the creation of residential areas under the Smart Village concept, which are made for the benefits of residents. The objective of the Smart Village is to achieve cost savings in construction and housing. Also, energy efficiency, community, climate and environmental friendliness and quality of life, as well as resource wisdom and holistically sustainable living, will be pursued.
The Key Flag, issued by the Association for Finnish Work, is a well-known mark of origin, which tells about Finnish origin and employment in Finland. A Social Enterprise badge can be awarded to a company that is established to produce social good and uses most of its profits to addressing the social challenge. It is also essential to demonstrate the social impact of business and the openness of its operations.
- It is an honour for us to do work that is of social importance. Developing housing to strengthen the well-being of residents and regions will benefit Finland as a whole. We will make a more equal and sustainable tomorrow with a big heart, describes Mr Juri Laurila, founder and CEO of ASV Arctic Smart Village Ltd.
"ASV Arctic Smart Village is a great example of a domestic player and social enterprise committed to the development of our society and generating new business to strengthen the vitality of the countryside by offering sustainable housing options," says Ms Niina Ollikka, Marketing Manager at the Association for Finnish Work.
