Our responsibility – Global Goal 12
At Scan-Visan A / S, we work every day for responsibility, based on a principle of common sense. Regardless, whether it applies to our customers, staff, products, and our suppliers. For us, quality and longevity are crucial. It is our responsibility to you as a customer and to our environment.
Therefore, we have chosen to focus on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and more specific on Global Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.
Among other things, this has resulted in, that we have prioritized in several new initiatives that will help us integrate the Global goals and made them visible in our daily work.
In 2021, for example, we have participated in the course “From everyday goals to Global Goals” via Erhvervscenter Middelfart, DK. Further, we have started a collaboration with the consulting company dichmann | lauridsen, which will help us with concrete tools for our CO2 accounting. This will make our initiatives more visible and help us focusing on limit resource consumption and our overall impact.
Common sense benefits our customers
For us, high quality and long life of our products is common sense. It is about responsibility towards you as a customer and our shared responsibility for the environment. The longer the lifespan of our products, the more efficient you can be and the fewer of the planet’s resources we spend on manufacture new products. At Scan-Visan A / S, we repair and reuse our products instead of disposing them and buying new ones. For example, we re-equip raw drills and steel centers, which reduces our customers’ consumption of steel by a minimum of 50% and up to 90%. It benefits not only the environment but to a large extent also the economy.
At Scan-Visan A / S, our policy is that we do not beautify our products with unnecessary paint, foil, and packaging. Most of our products are delivered/ picked up, without beautification. If we send products, they are packed in recycled packaging received from suppliers and partners, and all excess packaging is pressed and picked up for recycling.
