Resource efficiency

The Earth’s limited resources all have different regeneration rates and as a world we are constantly being reminded that by consuming beyond our resources we are potentially contributing to higher levels of carbon dioxide and stress on ecosystems.

At Sandvik, we take this issue seriously by working with resource efficiency. Through our EHS Policy, Sandvik commits to ‘minimize the environmental impacts from its activities. We will strive for high efficiency in the use of energy and natural resources. We will also promote systems for reuse, recycling and recovery of materials and work to prevent pollution and other environmental harm’.

Sandvik has identified its largest environmental aspects to be energy and raw material consumption, CO2 emissions, the use of fresh water and waste and consequently has set environmental objectives to reduce the consumption of energy and raw material, decrease emissions and increase recycling rates. At Sandvik Mining we feel that it is also important that these efforts are reflected both in our operations and our products.
