We should be as sustainable as our products

Sustainability is one of our biggest focus areas. Even though we have already come a long way, we are aiming much higher. With measurable sustainability targets over time, we define our work within environment, society and economy. By 2030, we have reduced our CO2 intensity, increased equality as well as diversity and will have a structured supplier monitoring program. Being a part of Addtech Group, we report sustainability data annually, which is always reviewed by third parties.

Other global initiatives that we are a part of are, for example, the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and the UN Global Compact. In these initiatives we can follow our sustainability progress together with our partners. For our sustainability achivements, we have been awarded the Ecovadis silver medal. Ecovadis, the world’s most trusted and independent analysis company, rates companies in their sustainability work. Our result shows that we perform better than 92% of Ecovadis ranked companies.

We will bring the industry forward. Everything else is unsustainable

For us, the goal is obvious – we must be as prominent in sustainability as we are in linear systems and transmissions. We will share knowledge and assist with expertise, regardless of whether it concerns new sustainable solutions, optimization of materials and energy consumption or collaborations with customers and suppliers, so that our supply chain will promote good working conditions and responsible production.
Everything else is unsustainable.

A sea of transport options

Aratron’s biggest impact on the climate is our transportations. We work continuously with efficient logistics planning and transport methods with lower CO2 emissions. A close collaboration with customers and suppliers is crucial, so that we together reduce the environmental impact in our value chain. For example, by choosing train or boat instead of flight when possible.

In addition to transports, it is important that we continue to use renewable energy, invest in energy efficiency and monitor all our business travelling.

Together we can challenge ourselves to reduce the climate footprint!

Calculate your climate footprint

Until today it has been difficult to assess climate impacts from different transportation methods, such as sea, air, road and rail.

Thanks to new smart applications we are now able to easily calculate the impact from the choice of transportation. We recommend DHL Carbon Calculator.

The movement from fossil fuel

Sometimes you do not see reasonable alternatives to transport by air. Together with the global transport company Geodis, we want to enable air transport that uses SAF – Sustainable Aviation Fuel. SAF is an alternative to traditional fuel, where CO2 emissions are 80% less from a life cycle perspective.

A supply chain is never stronger than its weakest link

Together with the rest of the Addtech Group, by 2030 we have evaluated 80% of our purchasing volume – a major investment in our work towards a sustainable supply chain. We will act closely with our suppliers based on Addtech’s common Code of Conduct for Suppliers. An important document produced to promote good business ethics and ensure that human rights are always respected.

The UN goals are our goals

The global goals for sustainable development were adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015 as part of Agenda 30 for sustainable development. For us at Aratron, it is a given to do everything we can to contribute to a sustainable development, while poverty and climate change are pushed back.

We do this by putting extra focus on the following goals:

 

Good health and well-being

Good health and well-being are a basic precondition for people’s ability to reach their full potential and to contribute to the development of society, both in a private and professional role. At Aratron, we want to encourage and enable our employees to take part in our initiatives for well-being, among other things through health checks via occupational health care, wellness grants and training in ergonomics. We prioritize a healthy and good work environment based on our values of trust, respect, commitment and a positive attitude.

Decent work conditions and economic growth

A sustainable supply chain is important for both delivering value to our customers and contributing to sustainable development. By monitoring that our suppliers comply to our Code of Conduct for Suppliers, we constantly work to ensure that the requirements of our code are met in areas such as human rights, working conditions, equal treatment, anti-corruption and environment.

Sustainable industry, innovations and infrastructure

Aratron will have a long-term and sustainable approach in all our business relationships. We will challenge our customers, suppliers and peers with sustainable solutions and innovative products. With continuous transfer of expertise between us and our customers, partners and industry colleagues, we want to contribute to development within our industry.

Fighting climate change

Aratron will work actively to minimize our, our suppliers and our customers climate footprint and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The environmental impact must be given special consideration in freight, business travel, product selection and energy consumption in our production. By reviewing and evaluating the right shipping method for each transport and by planning the logistics together with both customers and suppliers, we can together actively reduce the climate footprint.

Whistleblower function

Aratron strives to conduct business in a transparent manner with high ethics. We value everyone’s safety and respect everyone who is affected by our operations.
