The environment is close to our heart. We have therefore developed an environmental philosophy to protect both the internal and external environment. Our ambition is that the design of our environmental work is in harmony with society’s environmental goals and meets local guidelines and regulations. Our joint endeavour within Axelent is to continually increase competencies within this prioritised area.
The environmental impact Axelent has today primarily is from our production, our transport, our business travel and our consumption of electricity and consumables. Our products are 100 % recyclable and are painted using powder coating and without the use of solvents.
Our goal is that the environment perspective should be a natural part of our day-to-day work and that our initiatives can contribute to creating a better world around us, for both this but above all for future generations.
We mainly use environmentally certified transport companies that specifically target active environmental work. Working together with our transport companies, we have adapted our packaging system to truck dimensions to reduce empty space in cargo bays and therefore the number of consignments. We actively work every day to coordinate the deliveries which leave Axelent. We work with local suppliers and with cooperative partners that are located nearby to the greatest extent possible as to avoid unnecessary long distance transport.
Axelent has an efficient recycling system which uses welding cooling water to heat the premises. We have our own transformer which means that we receive high voltage electricity and achieve a high utilisation factor of the electricity we use.
We also continuously work to achieve our goal of using more green energy. We for example are actively involved in setting up wind turbines to provide us with power from green technology.
We in the company also work continuously to switch our travel to more environmentally friendly alternatives. We achieve this by using environmental cars and reduce our environmental impact through technical equipment or other aids. We work actively to reduce our consumption of paper and recycle company waste to the greatest extent possible.
