ENVIRONMENT

Frequent checks, measurements and audits ensure uniformity and optimization.

Our comprehensive risk analysis contains an environmental aspects matrix with:

  • All possible environmental risks for our different departments and activities (production, storage, administration, maintenance)
  • Their environmental impact
  • The measures to limit or avoid risks

Our system of corrective and preventive measures and for the main risks has been set in an order of priority.

For our products we have the French ecolabel NF Environnement, which guarantees that they have less impact on the environment and are still equivalent to other market products.

CHINA COOKSTOVES

TURNING WASTE PRODUCTS INTO VALUABLE FUEL.

SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTUREIMPACTS ON THE LOCALS.

In China, it’s common to burn agricultural by-products such as corn, as they are seen as useless waste products. This, however, damages air quality and can cause environmental degradation. The project trains the local people on how to use the stove using their own corn waste products. Besides being cheap, readily available and plentiful, it also has positive effect on the environment. The project has been so successful that neighbors of homes using the cookstoves are immediately convinced to also use them. There has been rapid growth in transition.

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY CERTIFICATE

Robberechts has received a sustainable energy certificate from Eneco. This for 100% certified energy from renewable sources.

Thanks to this choice, 1050.54 tons / year of CO2 emissions are avoided. With this we are taking great steps in sustainable business.

We want to show you that entrepreneurship and sustainability go together. Because that is better for the future.

For example, Greenpeace gave Eneco a great award for its achievements in the field of renewable energy, for the 3rd year in a row.

Eneco scores light green in the Greenpeace ranking of the most sustainable Belgian energy suppliers. This makes Eneco one of the greenest of all major Belgian energy suppliers. (Source: Eneco (NL))

SAFETY & HEALTH

Since safety is central to Groep Robberechts, it is of the utmost importance for everyone to know and respect these safety rules.

Our responsibility for the safety and health of people involved in our operations extends beyond our own employees.

We do not work with suppliers that we know are violating people’s safety or rights in any way. For the small percentage (<10%) of our suppliers that are not European, we specifically ask in the supplier information form about their attention to and respect for quality requirements, protection of the environment, human rights and the health and safety of employees.

All these suppliers were visited at least once.
