Ekelund has taken multiple steps to ensure their products are made conscientiously with sustainable practices and high-quality materials. Note in particular:
-Eco-friendly energy. Ekelund purchases “green electricity” from solar, wind or waterpower generation to power their offices and manufacturing facility.
-Effective Lighting. Eklund is invested in their staff's well-being, especially during the long dark winter months in Sweden, investing in the best light available for them to work under. In addition, Ekelund uses movement sensitive switches where appropriate in its facility to assure that no light is left on when it is not needed.
-Water consumption. Eklund collects the rainwater from their roof into a basin in their basement for reuse.
-Heating. Eklund started their own central heating plant which utilizes biofuel grown in the area. This heating facility produces most of the heat needed by the village of Horred through underground distribution. Their ECO certified forest re-grows in a pace well within their needs for local heat distribution.
-Cooling. For the limited time Eklund needs air conditioning, they mostly use Geothermal cooling.
