Material and energy efficiency
Reducing the environmental impacts of our operations
Having an overall understanding of our operations and the environmental impacts of our entire value chain is an important part of our environmental sustainability. From waste reception to final disposal, environmental permits are a prerequisite for processing waste. At our facilities, we reduce the emissions caused by our operations and use constructional solutions to prevent soil and water pollution. In our operations, we also follow international management system standards (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001) as well as local and material-specific standards (Cenelec, e-Stewards, Cerub).
We aim to increase the energy efficiency of production and transport, and thus reduce our carbon footprint. We can achieve this by increasing the use of renewable energy sources and by emphasising sustainability and sustainability when purchasing products and technology. Our staff plays an important part in this, and we encourage them to develop new ideas for increasing energy efficient and environmentally friendly operations.
At our reject unit, we have been able to recover more and more raw materials, and the leftover material is used to produce recycled fuel. Waste that cannot be utilised is handled responsibly at our final disposal area. Our utilisation rate is very high. Annually, we have been able to utilise 95% of the materials delivered to us, either as materials or energy.
