Iskraemeco views sustainability as a philosophy that must be lived and embedded, not as a set of routines and guidelines to be followed as an afterthought. It is past time for drastic measures and Iskraemeco holds itself, its supply chain, its partners, and the industry as a whole accountable for sweeping progress.

Join us in our journey. We need to decarbonize our planet, cut resource consumption in half, and save the future for our coming generations.

Sustainability means putting action first and excuses never.

How we do it

Iskraemeco’s bases its approach to sustainability on three broad pillars: Internal Processes, Partner Processs and Partnership.

1. Internal Processes

Sustainability begins in-house. Kindness for the planet stems from respectful interpersonal relationships and strong competences. When we take care of the people we work with, they are more invested in our common goals. Our employees we count on, to design sustainable solutions, find more and more places in our processes for optimizing resources, minimizing our impact on the environment and shaping our vision.

  • Fairness, respect, and robust community
  • Constant optimization of in-house resources
  • Smart, green, “one planet” conscientious design and solutions
2. Partner Processs

Transparency is key in ensuring our supply chain is held to the same standards as we hold ourselves and great results can only be product of partnership Our solutions require conflict materials, so we must ensure absolute transparency and their most rational use possible. We must also strive to source materials from urban mining. Above all else we must insist on ethical labor conditions at every step of the way.

  • Materials and Sources
  • The strictest and most ethical labor standards
  • Reduction in using scarce and conflict materials, designing with recycled materials
  • Shortening of component paths and footprints
3. Partnership

Industry actors are out there leading the change towards greener, more sustainable practices. We seek their company and cherish exchanging knowledge with them. With them we urge change at industry events and conferences, as well as with customers. Most importantly, we are transparent and open, highlighting our progress while openly debating the difficult and challenging obstacles on our way, admitting where we can improve.

  • Broad Awareness
  • Leading by steadfast, unwavering example
  • Actively raising awareness among customers
  • Insistence on partnering with like-minded actors
