There are many challenges around the world as well as at home when it comes to human rights, poverty, equality, the environment and climate change. To tackle these challenges, the UN has adopted Agenda 2030. The agenda has 17 goals that show how the countries of the world can work together for a fairer and more sustainable world by 2030.
Hydratronics and our owner KG Knutsson AB have reviewed the 17 goals and 169 sub-goals and identified eight as priorities for our company. You can read more about them under at KGK's website.
Free from conflict minerals
Our products do not contain metals derived from conflict minerals, meaning minerals where the money from extraction is used to finance armed conflicts. As a result, we meet the requirements of the Dodd Frank Act, Section 1502 and future EU legislation applicable from 2021 and onwards.
Our environmental policy describes our ambition to reduce our impact on the environment as far as technically, financially and practically feasible. Among other things, this means ensuring that our goods handling is as efficient as possible, that our energy use is minimized, that we reduce travel and that we constantly evaluate new and environmentally friendly products and methods that can be used in our operations.
Production without heavy metals and hazardous flame retardants
We produce all our products in accordance with the EU directive RoHS 2 which regulates the use of certain heavy metals and flame retardants in electrical and electronic products. Our products are free from lead and lead alloys. When components or products are produced by subcontractors, the same requirements apply as for our own production.
