What is it that EdmoLift wants to achieve through its work with CSR?

-We strive to have EdmoLift placed at the forefront of the Swedish industry when it comes to working with- and emphasize CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). More and more customers choose to do business with companies that take the environment, the people and working conditions into serious consideration. And this is something that we have noticed as well – our customers are more observant and demanding in terms of our manufacturing processes, what materials we are using, our substitution process etc. At EdmoLift we started on this path a long time ago, and we have built a very solid ground for a sustainable organization in the long-term, says Jan Eriksson, Quality- and Environment Manager at EdmoLift.

-To always go the extra mile to find sustainable options and work towards impacting the environment as little as possible has been our goal for many years. As well as offering a workplace where all employees feel welcome, safe and respected while getting the chance to grow and develop. At EdmoLift our common values are happiness, commitment and respect - key words that we want permeates our whole organization and the work we perform.

 

What does it mean that EdmoLift for the 5th year in a row has received the gold-rating by EcoVadis and renewed the certificate to FR2000:2017?

-Of course we are very happy and proud over the fact that EdmoLift is able to prosper at the highest level of CSR and that this goes for all part of our organization. FR2000:2017 has taken us as a company to a new level. We can now integrate our management system into our organization and use it as a tool in the everyday work in a much easier and better way. With this, we are now taking our next step towards EdmoLift 4.0.

 

How do you work specifically with CSR at EdmoLift right now?

-We have just recently commissioned the filtering of the wash water in the paint shop. Previously, we let out the abundant water but with this solution we now have a system with a closed loop. The purity of the wash water is, according to the providers of the system Candor Sweden and Syntema I Arbrå, “similar to that within an aquarium”, which is true. Earlier we were forced to switch the process water 3-4 times a year, but now we will only have to switch the water about once a year. We have also installed automatic chemical dosing for this process. Earlier the “detergent” was added manually, but now it is added automatically and always with the right amount. The detergent is also new and we have moved away from an iron phosphate-based one to a zirconium-based detergent. It is a more environmentally friendly alternative and an important part in our work with the substitution process, while it is much safer for our paint shop operators who does not get exposed to the chemicals in the same way as before, concludes Jan Eriksson.
