CLIMATE EFFORTS FOR LAND AND SEA

E_SDG_PRINT-13

WORLD GOAL 13

ALUPROFF’S CLIMATE EFFORTS ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUPPORTED BY OUR CORE BUSINESS, BUT WE STILL TRY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WE ARE NO LONGER PRODUCERS OF PLASTIC PRODUCTS BUT PURCHASE PLASTIC COMPONENTS AND TRY TO SELECT RESPONSIBLE SUPPLIERS. WE ALSO TRY TO ENCOURAGE ALL OF OUR SUPPLIERS TO AVOID PLASTIC ENDING UP IN THE OCEANS.
BY OPTIMIZING OUR ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN OPERATION, PRODUCTION, TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICS WE CAN MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND REDUCE OUR CO2 EMISSIONS.
WE CHOOSE SUSTAINABLE SUPPLIERS FOR OUR OPERATIONAL MATERIALS TO CONTRIBUTE TO PROTECT, RECOVER, AND SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE USE OF LANDBASED ECOSYSTEMS.
USING FSC WOOD WE HELP PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY. FINALLY, WE SUPPORT NGOS WHO MAKE A DIFFERENCE BOTH LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY.

ALUPROFFS INITIATIVES

OPERATION CLEAN SWEEP AMBASSADOR
MARINE PLASTIC POLLUTION IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES AND PLASTIC GRANULATE (REMAINS FROM PLASTIC PRODUCTION) PLAYS A BIG PART. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY PLASTIC PRODUCTION BUT BUY OUR PLASTIC COMPONENTS FROM RESPONSIBLE SUPPLIERS, AND THROUGH OUR ROLE AS OPERATION CLEAN SWEEP AMBASSADORS, WE TRY TO INFLUENCE OUR SUPPLIERS TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION AND TO PREVENT PLASTIC GRANULATE FROM ENDING UP IN THE OCEAN.
CO2 NEUTRAL TRAVEL ACTIVITIES
ALUPROFF IS COOPERATING WITH GOODWINGS, THROUGH WHOM WE BOOK ALL OF OUR TRAVEL ACTIVITIES. GOODWINGS SECURES CO2 NEUTRAL JOURNEYS AND SUPPORT OF NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. WE ARE ADDITIONALLY WORKING TO REDUCE TRAVEL ACTIVITIES AND HOLD MORE VIDEO MEETINGS.
SUPPORT FOR PLASTIC CHANGE (NGO)
THROUGH OUR COOPERATION WITH GOODWINGS, WE DONATE MONEY TO “PLASTIC CHANGE”. PLASTIC CHANGE IS A DANISH ENVIRONMENTAL ORGANIZATION, WORKING BOTH NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY FOR AN ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT PLASTIC POLLUTION AND A FUTURE WHERE ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTION IS SUSTAINABLE.
GOING FORWARD WE PLAN TO IMPLEMENT NGO SUPPORT AS A RECURRING PART OF OUR BUSINESS MODEL.
SUSTAINABLE SUPPLIERS FOR OPERATING EQUIPMENT
THROUGH INTERNAL CHANGES IN OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES, WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE TO PROTECT, RECOVER, AND SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE USE OF LANDBASED ECOSYSTEMS AND PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY. WE HAVE MADE SEVERAL CHOICES: WE USE FSC CERTIFIED PAPER FROM SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY FOR INTERNAL USE. THE SWAN(ECO) LABELED PRINTING COMPANY, LASER TRYK, PRINTS OUR MARKETING MATERIALS, CATALOGUES ETC. WE RECYCLE PAPER TO THE HIGHEST EXTENT POSSIBLE AND WE WORK TO BECOME PAPERLESS.
USE OF WOODEN PACKAGING
ALUPROFF USES WOOD TO PACKAGE PRODUCTS FROM PRODUCTION TO DISTRIBUTION AND TO THE CUSTOMER. WE ONLY USE SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY WOOD (FSC CERTIFIED) AND CURRENTLY WORK TO IMPLEMENT USE OF RECYCLED WOOD TO THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE EXTENT.
REDUCTION OF WATER WASTE
WE HAVE REPLACED BOTTLED WATER WITH TAP WATER AND ALL EMPLOYEES HAVE BEEN GIVEN A HEALTHY DRINKING BOTTLE. WE PUT WATER PITCHERS ON THE TABLE AT MEETINGS AND TRY TO USE EXCESS WATER TO WATER FLOWERS AND PLANTS. FOR CLEANING OUR COMPANY CARS WE GO TO CAR WASHES WHERE THE WATER IS RECYCLED.
HANDLING OF CHEMICALS
WE HAVE A CLEAR PROCEDURE FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF CHEMICALS, PAINT ETC. WHICH WE NEVER JUST POUR DOWN THE DRAIN.
NEW ENERGY SUPPLIER
FOR ELECTRICAL SUPPLY WE HAVE SIGNED AN AGREEMENT WITH THE COMPANY NATUR ENERGI, WHICH MEANS WE ARE USING GREEN ENERGY, POWERED BY DANISH WINDMILLS. WE ARE WORKING WITH CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENTS AND OPTIMIZATION OF ENERGY CONSUMPTION THROUGHOUT THE VALUE CHAIN, SUCH AS TIMERS ON LIGHTSWITCHES, AND REPLACING REGULAR LIGHTBULBS AND ENERGY CONSUMING DEVICES IN OPERATION AND PRODUCTION WITH ENERGY SAVING ONES. WE CONSULT WITH EXPERTS TO ENSURE THE MOST OPTIMAL USE OF OUR ENERGY SOURCES.
TRANSPORT & LOGISTICS
WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRANSPORT SOLUTIONS WE OFFER OUR CUSTOMERS. THEREFORE, WE HAVE HIGH REQUIREMENTS FOR OUR TRANSPORTERS REGARDING CO2 EMISSIONS, DOCUMENTATION ETC. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IS A CRITICAL POINT WHEN WE SELECT OUR TRANSPORT PARTNERS. IN COOPERATION WITH AN EXTERNAL TRANSPORT OPTIMIZATION PARTNER, WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING TO MAP ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS THROUGHOUT OUR SUPPLY CHAIN – FROM THE GOODS ARE SHIPPED FROM THE MANUFACTURER UNTILL WE SHIP THEM TO OUR CUSTOMER. WE ARE DOING THIS TO BE ABLE TO ADVISE, INFORM AND INVITE OUR CUSTOMERS TO CHOOSE THE MOST SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION.
