We have been active in the field of sustainability for years. We see it as our duty to continuously expand sustainability within our organization and in the relationship with our partners.
Every year we draw up a CO2 Footprint, which we have tested by KIWA. In this way we can see whether the various measures have the desired effect in achieving our objectives.
CO2 emissions in 2020 were 11.02% lower than in 2019!
It goes without saying that we are constantly working on reducing energy consumption in our business premises (read; Led lightning, energy-saving lamps, heat recovery units, replacement central heating pumps and extra insulation), minimizing water and gas consumption.
We separate the waste into plastic, paper, wood, iron, PVC and other waste. The use of packaging within our logistics process is kept to a minimum.
Business operations are increasingly digitized, reducing paper consumption.
In addition, we encourage our colleagues to cycle to the workplace through our bicycle plan.
We support De Bovenlanden foundation for the maintenance and development of a cultural-historical and important landscape element in the municipality where our origin lies.
We are actively involved in bringing technology to the attentions of children in primary and secondary schools. For example, we provide Technique Experiences, guest lectures and we actively participate in annual Technique Three Days organized for students. In this way we make our social contributions. As a recognized training company, we frequently offer the young generation internships.
As head office in Mijdrecht (including our prefab department) we have the following ISO certifications:
With NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2015 we demonstrate that we maintain a quality management system which we consistently deliver products and services that meet customer requirements and comply with legislation and regulations. With NEN-EN-ISO 14001:2015 we demonstrate that we systematically manage environmental responsibilities, which contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability.
