Our aim is to assist our customers in their strive to improve their environmental performance. Determined hard work has enabled us to obtain ISO 14001 certification for all our productions and distribution units.
In practice, this involved in-depth environmental studies, training of employees and clear routines. Seco AB has overall environmental targets aimed at reducing the environmental impact from waste, chemical products, energy consumption and transport. Annual global environmental objectives focus activities on the essential environmental areas. As a result, the environmental impact and the risk of environmental accidents have been reduced.
In the development of our products and processes, we take the environment into account. Worn-out inserts and tool holders can obviously be recycled.
All packaging comprising paper, corrugated cardboard, rigid plastics and non-rigid plastics are recycled.
Seco AB cooperates closely with suppliers and customers in matters related to the environment. Our Environmental and Quality Department is always willing to assist if questions in environmental matters should arise.
Our certified environmental management system, certified in 2006, has been used to improve our work with environmental issues and to reduce our environmental impact. Sins 2007 all units in the Seco group were visited in order to monitor results and develop the efficiency of systems.
Development and monitoring of the system is an important and ongoing work.
