Sustainability & Safety

Foggy forest ariel view

For many years we have worked with sustainability, and it is now a well integrated part of our organisation. These issues have been implemented partly through the introduction of various policies relating to sustainability, and partly by ensuring active sustainability work in accordance with ISO 14001.

Troax’s global policies relating to sustainability apply to all companies
within the Group and consist of:

» Ethical guidelines for Troax Group
» Whistle blowing policy
» Financial guidelines
» Quality and environmental policy
» HR policy
» Equality policy.

We follow the development of sustainability work by following-up the goals set within each area. Our ambition is to continue to develop our internal sustainability programme, for instance through continued investment in training and through additional goals that are regularly followed up within the business.

99 % recyclable steel

Troax AB has been certified according to ISO 14001 since 1998. Our mesh panels have minimal environmental impact because the product is to a large extent made from recyclable steel. The new end-product is 99 % recyclable, which means that an end-of-life product from Troax is returned to the recycle loop to be made into new steel products.

Reducing material use

We are continually working on reducing material use – steel and energy consumption – by optimising the manufacturing process.

Changes for the future

In 2018, the Hillerstorp unit made the transition from natural gas to biogas, which will have a positive impact on the environment. This has reduced our CO2 emissions with 5320 tons.

GLOBAL GOALS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Based on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development, we have defined three important areas to focus on in our sustainability work. They also support Troax’s strategic goals and focus:

FOCUS AREA 1: ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Sustainable, reliable and renewable energy and clean fuels are a prerequisite in order to be able to meet many of the challenges facing the world. A large proportion of our emissions of greenhouse gases come from extraction, transformation and use of fossil energy. However, renewable energy solutions are becoming cheaper, more reliable and more efficient day by day.

FOCUS AREA 2: GOOD WORKING CONDITIONS

Good health is a fundamental requirement for people to be able to achieve their full potential and contribute to the development of society. Troax companies work to offer a healthy and safe working environment. As manufacturing companies, we feel it is important to reduce the risk of accidents and work-related injuries. Within the Troax group, each company is responsible for ensuring a safe workplace that meets the local regulations.

FOCUS AREA 3: BUSINESS ETHICS

Peaceful societies and freedom from violence are a goal and a means of sustainable development. Inclusive, responsible and fair institutions form the basis for good governance free from conflict, corruption and violence. Troax’s view of business ethics is summarised in two documents: The group’s ethical guidelines and the Whistle blower policy.
