Sustainable production

Sustainable production

To ensure your production process is sustainable you need to make sure it is as resource-efficient as possible. By making use of modern environmental technology and digitalisation, for example, you can achieve greater efficiency, save money and ensure lower environmental impact.

You can save on costs and reduce environmental impact by reviewing how much electricity, water, heating and materials you use and how you use them, enabling you to see where you can make improvements and where your efforts will be most useful.

Recirculating water instead of bringing in fresh, reusing production waste or making use of waste heat or cooling for your own processes or those of nearby businesses are just some examples of what can be done.

Your customers may often be willing to pay more for such measures – but it’s essential to clearly communicate how much better that makes the product from a sustainability or performance perspective.

Hazardous waste

Most businesses deal with some type of hazardous waste. All enterprises producing, transporting, collecting, processing and acting as intermediary or dealing in hazardous waste have an obligation to report information about this to the new Waste Registry of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.

On the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's website, you can find information about the Climate Step (Klimatklivet), which is an investment support.
