NORAUTRON AND SUSTAINABILITY
As a major player in the electronics industry, we take our responsibility seriously. We are constantly making conscious choices to reduce our
environmental footprint, and will do what we can to support our customers on their journey towards a more sustainable future.
ISO 14001 – ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system, and implies that we must comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements. Being ISO 14001 certified contributes to giving us an understanding of -and ability to maintain an optimal environmental profile, both in relation to laws and regulations and with regards to external requirements and expectations.
A CONTINUOUS FOCUS ON ENVIRONMET AND SUSTAINABILITY
- WASTE MANAGEMENT:
We follow strict routines to ensure all waste generated at our sites are sorted, and that all non-recyclable materials are safely deposited.
- PRODUCT PACKAGING:
Starting June 2021 we replace most of our plastic fillings in product deliveries with cardboard fillings using recycled cardboard boxes. This swap allows a drastic reduction in plastic usage at Norautron AS and is now something we consider applying to our other sites as well.
- ENERGY CONSUMPTION:
We are continuously working on reducing our energy consumption in all steps of our production. Our focus is on investing in more energy efficient machinery and increasing our share of renewable energy, but also on the smaller things, such as using LED lighting in our facilities and having lights switch off automatically when not needed.At Norautron AS we are powered by 100% renewable energy. Our goal is to have all our sites running on renewable energy in the future.
In June 2021 we started our transition to an electrical car fleet as the first electrical car was taken in use, a Mercedes-Benz e-Vito.
- SUPPORTING OUR CUSTOMERS:
We support and celebrate all actions made by our customer in their way to reducing their environmental footprint and will do what we can to be of service to support their goals.Environmental aspects are included in our choosing of new suppliers, and in our recommendations to customers.
