Through our subsidiaries, Nordisk Bergteknik has operations that are subject to licensing according to the Swedish Environmental Code. According to Nordisk Bergteknik’s policy, all companies must strive to reduce negative impacts on the environment by complying with current local environmental legislation, strive for sound resource management and energy efficiency, and stay up to date on significant environmental issues.
Nordisk Bergteknik continuously invests in new machines to always have a modern and environmentally friendly machine park. We are proud to have one of the most modern set of machineries in the industry today.
Efficient resource use is important for both Nordisk Bergteknik and our stakeholders. Where applicable, we focus on our products and processes by applying a circular way of thinking. This can mean that we must constantly efficiently utilise raw materials in processes while at the same time repairing, reusing and recycling. An example of this is that we strive first and foremost to repair our old machines as far as is economically justified and when we purchase a new machine, the goal is that it should always contribute to our ambition of an environmentally friendly machine park. Efficient use of resources also includes minimizing waste and hazardous waste over the life cycle of the process. This is something we are constantly working on.
Many of our machines are still powered by diesel and the emissions they cause account for a significant part of our climate impact. Our ambition is to gradually reduce these emissions as we replace old machines with new, more environmentally friendly machines. We also strive to increase the proportion of machines that run on either electricity or renewable fuels.
We have also started to map and measure our climate impact in the value chain, where the largest part of our impact is found. To fully achieve our climate goals and contribute to a climate-neutral society, we need to collaborate with other actors and work together with both customers, clients and suppliers to achieve the green transition.
