PartnerTech has a group-wide environmental certificate in accordance with ISO 14001. It covers all units as well as future acquisitions. Our environmental management system and purchasing manual also impose environmental requirements on our suppliers. Besides being the natural consequence of our quest for long-term sustainable development, PartnerTech's intensive environmental effort reflects the demands of most customers. We do not own any products, but manufacture exclusively on contract.
Questions about the use of materials, recyclability and energy consumption are generally important to answer in order to limit the environmental impact of the products. When it comes to recycling and phasing out hazardous substances, we follow the Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) regulations of the European Union. PartnerTech proactively helps customers develop lead-free design solutions. Our licenses for emissions to air and water, as well as the use of cutting fluids, require the following:
- Waste water is to be purified and recycled.
- Refuse is to be sorted and either recycled or incinerated.
- Biofuels are to be used for heating.
- Powder lacquer is to be used instead of solvent-based lacquer.
