Environmental-friendly processes around the production of Unisto Security SealsEnvironmental sustainable manufacturing
As international security seals manufacturer Unisto feels the responsibility to embrace environmental-friendly practices to reduce the impact of its processes on the environment.
That is the reason why since many years we are extending the green practices along the entire stretch of our value chain, expecting from our suppliers, for example, certified raw materials and packing conform to strict directives.
The efficient use of our resources is the main focus of our commitment to environmental responsibility. We would like to share with you some of our achievements directly connected to the production of our security seals:
With the energy recovery from our production plants we cover 70% of our heating requirements. We save an annual heating oil requirement of approx. 34,000 litres and thereby reduce our CO2 emissions.
Material used for the production of our security seals
We only use and process harmless materials and have their harmlessness and non-toxicity confirmed to us in writing by the suppliers. The confirmations are certainly always at the disposal of our customers.
Production waste and recycling
We minimize all types of waste. If possible, we recycle them outside or within the company. Reusable waste is recycled and further processed.
Machines and production equipment
Energy savings is for us an important focus, we ensure that energy consumption is kept to a minimum and that radiation is compatible with the latest standards.
ISO 14001:2015 Environmental management system
ISO 14001 is an internationally agreed standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. It requires that an organization considers all environmental issues relevant to its operations, such as air pollution, water and sewage issues, waste management, soil contamination, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and resource use and efficiency. Unisto is ISO 14001:2015 certified and strives to improve its processes in respect of the environment.
- We think and act in an environmentally conscious manner, resulting in environmentally compatible market services
- We minimise waste of all kinds and recycle it outside and inside the company wherever possible
- We encourage better environmental performance of our suppliers by demanding certificates of the properties of the materials supplied
Our security seals are produced in conformance with the chemical regulation REACH.
REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of chemicals) defines the procedures to ensure the safe use and distribution of chemical substances and products which contain them. We confirm that all raw materials used for the production of our security seals comply with REACH regulation and none of the materials used are substances of very high concern, as from the article 33 and 57 of Regulation 1907/2006/EC (ECHA Candidate List of substances of very high concern).
