Sustainability should not be just talk and catchphrases but examples of practice. As a Nordic company, we actively strive to promote sustainability from Environment, Social, Human, and Economic perspectives. Environmental sustainability is often the most visible area in public discussion and has been considered throughout our portfolio. Still, as an employer, we feel a great responsibility for the well-being of the personnel and the continuity of our operations, which are essential parts of sustainability.
Environmental Sustainability – Through different ELLEGO industries: Energy and Transmission, Industry, Marine, and Airports, ELLEGO provides tools for process efficiency and longevity. There is no need to change, repair or replace devices regularly. Once installed and commissioned, the device requires minimal attention/maintenance. The upgradeability of the products guarantees that the functionality of the existing equipment is preserved throughout the entire life cycle and adapts as technologies develop.
Life cycle management and circular economy are key areas when products are designed and are always at the center when ELLEGO products are designed. For the end customer, this appears in the ease of serviceability and maintenance or through the commissioning and retrofitting services.
In a previous article, ELLEGO Sustainability – From Awareness to Action, we told how sustainability is considered in Ellego’s day-to-day operations.
Social and Human Sustainability – Social and Human sustainability means understanding people’s well-being and involving the community. It requires investments in education and health, enabling access to essential services, and supporting the development of skills and knowledge. We also have an extensive local cooperation network of experts in various fields, supporting operational flexibility. In the long term, it means initiatives and the ability to develop processes and structures supporting future generations to maintain a healthy community.
Economic Sustainability – Economic sustainability can take many forms. For us, it means decision-making principles and business practices that aim to achieve economic growth without the harmful environmental trade-offs that have historically accompanied growth. With the principles of sustainable development, we create products and businesses that save natural resources so that future generations can also use them.
ELLEGO Airports and the ELLED product family is a model example of a development supporting the environment and business, modernizing airport lighting while saving natural resources. We will get to know it better next week.
