ENVIRONMENTAL POLICYCrossControl has been working, and will continue to work, to prevent environmental impact and minimize the risks for harming the environment from our operations. CrossControl shall consider sustainable development due to environmental, social and economic aspects in all decisions taken for reaching CrossControl’s vision to make machines smart, safe and productive.

We achieve this through the following measures:

  • Compliance with applicable environmental laws and ISO 14001 delivered through an effective business system
  • Using a well-structured approach and continuous improvements in operations
  • Identifying and minimizing environmental hazards from our products and operations
  • Material and packaging efficiency
  • Involving our suppliers to reach our goals
  • Reducing impact to the climate from transportation and travel
  • Minimizing the use of non-environmentally friendly chemicals and materials
  • Recycling of waste from materials and operations

To succeed in our policy, we will need to implement and communicate our environmental work within the company. All employees receive education about our environmental goals and policy, and we work to show how each unit can contribute for reaching our goals. We also have transparency towards external stakeholders regarding our environmental work and its impact.
