Environmentally adapted production
Bundled materials promote efficient transport
LLENTAB strives to create healthy environments where production and products do not have a negative impact on people and nature. We apply structured work routines in our environmental management systems with routines and processes based on the ISO 14001 principles. We have integrated these with our routines for Work Environment and Safety Procedures that are part of our Business management system.
To us, the most important environmental aspects originate from building materials produced in-house, energy consumption, waste management and transport. Because of this, we work to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, reduce energy consumption and select sustainable sources of energy. When producing steel products, the biggest share of consumed energy is spent on rolling, cutting and punching. This is why we are hard at work to find sustainable solutions for recycling the heat generated in our production processes. Our quality work in production also aims at reducing the causes of material waste.
To reduce the nuisance of noise for our neighbours and noise exposure for employees, we have adopted extensive measures to reduce noise levels.
Waste management is a central part of LLENTABʼs development towards long-term sustainability. Through a national agreement on waste management both for our production facilities and our construction operations, our goal is to achieve 100 percent sorting of waste. Additionally, LLENTAB is a member of fti of Sweden that operates a nationwide system for collection and recycling of packaging materials.
When evaluating suppliers in connection with the purchase of steel, an evaluation of the transport system is included as an important issue. A large proportion of our raw materials are shipped by boat and railway. One of the best ways to reduce the strain on the environment is the possibility to load our materials as efficiently as possible. Our packaging and transport solutions, where steel components are usually packed in “flat packages”, and our cooperation with logistics companies to strive for high fill factors, result in reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
