For uvex, environmental sustainability means reducing the damage to the environment caused by the company, directly or indirectly, along the value-added chain. To act as effectively as possible, the main causes of environmental damage from the product management/product development, in-house production facilities (plants), fleet management, transport and logistics, facility management, purchasing (supplier appraisal and supplier selection), Group Information Management and internal administration/functions areas of responsibility are regularly scrutinised.
In reducing damage to the environment, we have successfully implemented the following topics at uvex, for example:
- Sustainable production of hearing protection earplugs at Swedsafe
- Sustainable production of safety footwear at uvex Cagi
