We always focus our attention on the environment in which we live, on recovery and recycling of waste materials and we do our best to achieve the target of zero emissions.
Today, thanks to Arken Good Action and to the reclamation and recycling of waste materials, we are proud of our virtuous production cycle: everything we use turns into energy and the percentage of disposal has been reduced to 0.5%.
Since 2011 Arken S.p.A. has certified its Environmental Management System according to the international standard UNI EN ISO 14001 – 2004 and since 19 May 2017 has officially achieved the UNI EN ISO 14001-2015 certification.
The application of our Environmental Management System is in line with the card of values, here a quote from the part related to “Integrity”:
“We are honest, sincere and frank towards the community in which we live and work, of which we observe laws and rules, and we commit ourselves to the best use and preservation of the goods and resources at our disposal in the respect of the environment.”
The most important actions developed over the years by Arken Spa have focused on the following activities:
For our employees have been informed through “We Arken”, dedicated to the Environment to engage them in existing issues and share important goals achieved. Internal communication also takes place with traditional billboards with graphical representation of the results achieved to stimulate more and more correct behaviors.
The idea of our company is to implement, where possible, all those actions ranging from design, production and installation to the end of a product life, aimed at reducing waste production and moving more and more in a perspective of continuous improvement and environmental sustainability.
We continue an action for raising awareness of our suppliers on environmental issues together with the communication of the initiatives undertaken. The objective is to actively involve our suppliers about all the indirect environmental aspects related to our processes, such as the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) in order to use wood raw material coming from a sustainable management from an environmental, social and economic point of view.
The Company continuously informs customers and local authorities on ongoing environmental projects through the website www.arken.it and Facebook FanPage. It also uses a newsletter dedicated to environmental news.
