At Seco, we believe that to be a sustainable business, we must act with economic, environmental and social responsibility, while taking advantage of the opportunities that arise from the integration of sustainability in our operations.
There has been a much greater focus placed on sustainability issues in recent years. The area has taken on a more direct connection to profitability and business models, partly because sustainability is closely linked to the company’s long-term competitiveness, and partly because it’s often linked with reduced costs in production itself.
Seco Tools is working with sustainability in an active and structured way. We want to recycle as much raw material as possible, steadily increase the efficiency of our processes, and continue to reduce our waste and our consumption of energy and water. We introduced the Green Fund four years ago, into which we set aside money every year. We are, therefore, able to finance new investments and projects aimed at strengthening our sustainability work.
Furthermore, sustainability often comes in when we help our customers to analyse their production processes. When we propose measures that increase the efficiency of a customer’s production system, the customer gets a more sustainable profile as a result – at the same time as reducing their cost.
