We strive for consideration for natural resources at all times and improve the
conditions necessary for a safe, clean and healthy environment for customers,
users of our products, employees and the public at large, this on an active
and ongoing basis.
Environment management is such an important business priority of ours that we are pleased to make the following commitments:
We will use environment management systems such as ISO 14001
to carry out operations in an environmentally friendly fashion and employ
principles of environment protection such as continuous product improvement,
compliance with legal requirements and raising employee awareness
at all our locations world-wide.
We promote environmental responsibility along the entire value chain,
encouraging suppliers, customers & subcontractors to adopt environment standards.
We will develop our production processes with a clear focus
on boosting energy and resource efficiency.
We will define the sustainable environment performance of our new
products via an ecological design system which is based on evaluations
for the entire product life cycle.
We will assist in the transfer of eco-ficient® technologies
to emerging industrial countries.
We will include environmental factors in our risk assessment procedures
relating to the bigger customer projects.
We optimise all packaging materials to 100% non-bleached recycled
cardboard, 20% less raw material with the same durability and 70% less printing ink.
Acting Locally, Everywhere
In all our companies across the world, we will take measures
to develop environmentally friendly products and production
processes that - through the use of new technologies - will
take any future environmental requirements into account
and thus spare resources.This can only happen via the
provision of systems and products that help people to use
electricity safely and rationally.
This is why we also aim to reduce energy consumption and go easy on other natural resources by:
Ensuring that protection of the environment is an integral part of our corporate culture, our work and all our actions.
Promoting awareness among Hager employees by means of training programs, information measures and working conditions that are appropriate in terms of our environmental policy.
Making sure that our customers, our business partners and the general public receive all the relevant information.
Furbishing and presenting our factories in their surroundings appropriately so that they comply with all relevant regulations and, where reasonable, go beyond them in avoiding and recycling waste and in recovering raw materials.
