Ericsson to build next-generation smart hub in Estonia to cut carbon emissions

Ericsson plans to merge all its facilities in Tallinn, Estonia, into a 50,000-square meter smart manufacturing and technology hub.

The facility will be used for co-development, with European customers and partners, of new cellular ecosystems and production techniques. The site, valued at around €155 million, is expected to launch operations in early 2026.

Acquisition of the site is expected to complete in Q4 2024. The facility will be situated in Ülemiste City in Tallinn, the largest business park and future-oriented urban area in the Baltics.

“This move is in line with Ericsson’s long-term strategy for a more resilient and sustainable supply chain, significantly reducing our carbon footprint and harnessing the power of 5G for smart manufacturing,” said Fredrik Jejdling, executive vice president and head of networks. The hub is expected to cut its carbon emissions by up to 70 percent compared to the four existing sites in Tallinn, and will support Ericsson’s target to make its own operations net zero by 2030.
