The move towards a more sustainable development model for the world will involve all aspects of society. The Teka Group takes a sincere and proactive approach to ecologic responsibility. Teka is committed to creating sustainable values for the environment in which we operate. We want to help build a fairer, healthier and more prosperous community for both present and future generations. Our corporate management strategy is based on a principle of harmonising economic success and social prosperity with environmental values. Since 2002, Teka has implemented a green line strategy to promote a healthy environmental attitude throughout the organisation. This process has involved all value added activities in all our production processes and systems.
Teka’s core businesses revolve around stainless steel, which is 100% recyclable. Always trying to reduce the impact of our products and processes on the environment, our R&D department is constantly seeking to use materials that are easy to recover for use again in the future. Production Working within ISO 14.001 guidelines, Teka has been able to reduce the energy required to produce each unit of product by 25%. At the same time a global reduction of 30% in water usage has bee achieved, whilst reducing CO2 emissions by 20% compared to the year 2000.
New agreements with ports closer to the main factories, together with a logistic rationalisation helped us achieve a reduction of 15% in the cost associated to the movement of goods.
Teka has been working hard on reducing the amounts of energy used by the appliances themselves. This has led to the production of a new generation of appliances that use less water, less energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
The recycling system is not only maintained during the production process – it is handled by approved and specialised companies.
Our factories work with ISO 14001 Environment Management Systems to provide assurance to management and our customers that they are in control of the organisational processes.
The engineering of standard products is constantly monitored to assure ecologic improvements and any new product developments are managed by our green line committee.
