Environmental policy

Swema’s two environmental goals are:
– do not harm the environment.
– do not use up the earth’s finite resources.

We must work towards the goals by the following:
– Comply with laws and regulations
– minimize travel, transport, energy, material use through telephone meetings and
coordination of travel to regions. (email instead of post)
– recycle
– use energy-efficient premises, IT, travel, transport and materials
– do not print on paper when this can be avoided. Otherwise, print double-sided.
– sell small light and energy efficient products
– market via electronic media.
– Choose products labeled with the Nature Conservation Association’s “good environmental choice”.
– Choose the smallest amount, least chemically dangerous substance that can be easily reused.
– choose energy types and journeys that are least harmful
We strive to be the best on the market in achieving these goals – then we can motivate ourselves and our customers.
Swema must support and influence employees, suppliers, customers, legislators and our market so that we can more easily achieve the goals.
At the end of the year, our improvements and use of energy must be reported on our website.
