Environmental responsibility

Environmental protection is responsibility and a part of everyday life of the Kolektor group employees at all levels and in all fields of operation. It constitutes an important part of social responsibility and partnership relations with local public and public at large.

All companies of the group are obliged to consistently fulfil all legislation requirements applying to their activities, products and services, customers' requirements, and any other requirements by the interested parties identified in the companies as compliance obligations.

All companies of the group are obliged to constantly improve the system, the environmental management system performance, and prevention of pollution. To reduce environmental impacts, the best available techniques, good practices and more environmental and user-friendly substances are introduced in the processes, provided this is feasible and acceptable in terms of quality and financial capabilities.

As we are well aware of the fact that our operation, products and services still represent a burden to the environment, we take full responsibility for the environmental impacts caused. Motivated by the desire to reduce them, each company sets its own environmental objectives based on the context of a specific organization and its activities. If applicable, the companies shall pursue the objectives defined below:

  • To reduce the consumption of energy (with regard to the amount of products, sales or other reasonable unit),
  • To reduce the consumption of drinking water (with regard to the amount of products, sales or other reasonable unit),
  • To reduce the amount of industrial waste (with regard to the amount of incoming materials or other reasonable unit),
  • To reduce the amount of municipal waste (with regard to the number of employees),
  • To increase the proportion of re-used materials (in-house or in other companies) provided this is feasible and acceptable in terms of quality and financial capabilities,
  • To develop products and services with the lowest possible impact on the environment during and after their use,
  • To constantly raise awareness among the employees and train and inform them about the requirements, state and achieved targets in the field of environmental protection, and
  • To promote environmental awareness also among everybody who works for the Kolektor group companies.

Environmental protection is important for sustainable and successful development of Kolektor group, for quality life of the employees and the society as such.
