Oy Primula Ab is a responsible family business that acts as a trendsetter in the environmental issue consideration. Pöyry has been their partner for years, assisting in various real estate development issues. For their new production and logistic centre "Primulan Herkkupaja" in Järvenpää, Pöyry has supplied all real estate design and engineering together with project management.

Pöyry also calculated the carbon footprint of Primula's operations. The new centre was constructed to deposit as small as possible carbon footprint and to fulfil the highest environmental standard demands. Now after executing compensative actions, Primula is considered to be the first carbon neutral food industry company in Finland.

Primula wanted to obtain a certification for the new production and logistic centre, and for that purpose Pöyry's accredited professionals helped to find the right solutions and guidance in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification process. LEED certification project is ongoing.
