Reduction

VelopA’s reduction targets, measures and planning

Because of its keen sense of social involvement, VelopA always considers the impact of its activities on our living environment. This is why VelopA seeks to limit its consumption of electricity and fuel, as well as encouraging external partners in its supply chain to do the same. We should use energy more efficiently. By the year 2020, VelopA aims to reduce its emissions of CO2 by 25% in relation to 2008. It will also seek to achieve the same goal across the supply chain.

VelopA’s environmental policy is based on the best possible fit between product, process and organization. In the years to come, this will lead to:

1. The prevention and reduction of waste production
VelopA achieves reductions in waste through low-waste design, purchasing and packaging. We are also very strict about separating the waste that is still generated.

2. Reductions in electricity consumption
VelopA continuously strives to reduce the consumption of energy in its business activities by identifying, planning and implementing energy-saving measures on its business premises.

3. Reductions in fuel consumption
VelopA has limited its use of lease cars to ‘A’ or ‘B’ label cars. We also make periodic agreements with our distributors to reduce CO2 emissions by discussing with them issues such as energy-efficient transport and planning energy-saving transportation methods.

4. Development and use of sustainable products
VelopA develops products with a high degree of sustainability. Both VelopA’s own staff and its suppliers and clients are actively involved in this policy by means of providing information and education.

5. Consistent encouragement of clients to purchase sustainable products.
VelopA also encourages the sale of FSC® wood by clients. VelopA encourages the purchase of sustainable products by emphasizing which products are in fact sustainable.

6. Raised awareness of sustainability among suppliers
VelopA’s objective for 2014 is to ascertain the carbon footprint of 90% of its “A” suppliers.

The company’s environment policy is evaluated twice annually in the management review.
