Focon want to reduce this burden and create a mutual balance between consideration for the environment, economy and the products’ lifespan. We will act in accordance hereby with basis partly in our products’ life cycles, and partly in our daily work.
In this process all properties that make the products environmentally friendly, and that are essential for environmental impacts doing the product life cycle are determined. Doing product development we will match the choice of materials, manufacturing processes and properties with environmental concerns and with the same priority as economy, function, etc. In this context, we will for example continue our longstanding practice of using PVC-free materials and avoid materials that can develop dangerous gases when they burn.
Manufacturing of our products is expected to take place in working conditions with minimal strain on the internal working environment as well as the external environment. We prioritize a good and safe working environment high and minimize own manufacturing processes’ environmental impact. We will minimize the use of substances that can pose a health risk to our employees.
