For Efore, environmental responsibility means the continuous development of environmentally friendly and energy efficient products and the minimization of the environmental impact of all of our operations. Our products are energy-efficient and the use of materials is strictly controlled.
This environmental approach covers the entire product life cycle from design to recycling or disposal of the product at the end of its life cycle. Efore’s environmental systems are developed, maintained and certified according to the ISO 14001 standard.
Efore’s products meet the requirements of the European Union’s WEEE Directive. They are also produced in compliance with the RoHS Directive in a lead-free production process using components that meet the criteria defined in the Directive. Recycling of electronic waste is organized in cooperation with carefully selected partners. In addition, environmental aspects are included in the selection of suppliers and subcontractors, and these companies are expected to continuously develop their operations toward increased environmental friendliness.
The long-term improvement principle, as stated in Efore’s environmental policy, emphasizes compliance with the ISO 14001 standard and other relevant requirements, regular checking of environmental performance, continuous improvement, environmental awareness and active communication with all stakeholders.
