PROACTIVELY MANAGING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Caring for the environment – part of our Champion 2020 strategy
We act in accordance with the principles of the circular economy, which is the opposite of the old “take, make and dispose” industrial model. This means we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and repair or recycle products and materials at the end of each service life. We ensure our tools are durable so they last longer; we ensure we use environmentally friendly resources in the production process; and we ensure that our tools as well as our fastening and protection products can be recycled and some parts even reused.
Ecological targets across our entire value chain.
We are proud to be signatories to UN climate change initiatives.

Our environmental initiatives
Conserving a precious resource
We conserve water in our production processes and day-to-day operations in many ways: from preventing leaks to creating closed water usage cycles and improving water treatment.
Our approach to cutting waste starts with implementing eco-design principles in our product development process to avoid unnecessary production waste and also includes waste management at all of our sites.
Driving out hazardous substances
In both our eco-design and sourcing processes, we ensure that hazardous materials are minimized as far as possible.
