The business affects the external environment mainly through noise and direct and indirect emissions. The Group’s production requires resources such as raw materials, water, energy, and chemicals. All subsidiaries are covered by the Group’s environmental policy, which covers energy consumption, emissions, and the use of raw materials. Where applicable, there is a local policy as a complement. All production units apply environmental management systems, and each production facility has set environmental goals. Operations in Finland and Sweden are certified according to ISO 14001.
Most of the waterproofing products have a high weight in relation to their value. The general solution is therefore to reduce the distance between the production plant and the destination by having national production facilities. Most of the transports are carried out by a third party purchased by Nordic Waterproofing.
