Aware of current and future challenges, ACRELEC Group is committed to reduce its environmental impact and protecting the health and safety of its employees and partners, in compliance with international laws and standards.
To achieve this, a Health, Safety and Environment roadmap has been established for the ACRELEC Group, comprising 25 objectives divided into 5 strategic areas. The action deployment schedule extends until 2026.
Their health and safety are our top priorities
This is why the ACRELEC Group is committed every day to ensuring the safety of men and women wherever they work, preserving their health, and promoting well-being at work. Valuing, protecting, and involving our employees are driving forces of the Group.
ISO 9001 – Quality Management
ISO 14001 – Environmental Management
Our factories, certified ISO 9001, allow us to maintain a continuously robust system of digitalized procedures, instructions, and controls based on our skills, qualifications, and customer feedback.
Listening, responsiveness, flexibility, and continuous improvement are in our DNA to be able to provide products of a high level of quality, reliability, and aesthetics that meet customer expectations.
Every detail makes the difference.
In early 2023, the ACRELEC Group defined its “environment standard,” which encompasses all the rules and best practices to be followed at the Group’s sites. This helps to raise awareness among the staff regarding the following themes:
Finally, we calculate the carbon footprint of our production activities each year, considering the six categories (direct emissions, energy, transport, and other indirect emissions). To reduce it, we combine improvement actions at our sites (energy consumption, waste sorting, resource management) with actions throughout the supply chain. For example, we prefer environmentally friendly transportation methods (preferably by boat and train), and we optimize container loading and our packaging. It’s worth noting that the use of air transport is only allowed in exceptional cases. Our improvement actions have led to a 22% reduction in our greenhouse gas emissions for our production activities between 2020 and 2022.
Since 2021, and in connection with our environmental policy, we strengthened our eco-design approach by carrying out Life Cycle Analyses (LCA) of our products.
Ecodesign is the integration of environmental criteria, quantifiable and measurable, from the design of the ACRELEC products.
The main objective of our approach is to reduce environmental impacts as much as possible throughout the life cycle of a product, while maintaining the same performance. On this way, we are using eco-design software allowing us to calculate the environmental footprint of a project right from its design phase.
The lifecycle of a product is defined by all the stages a product goes through during its life, from the extraction of raw materials for manufacturing, through its production, its use, and up to its end of life (recycling) after being removed from the market.
