Ing. Westad AS, being a small company, recognizes that our business affects the environment. For us, it is important to have an environmental management system that gives us control over our environmental aspects and to be able to minimize negative impact on the environment:
We must follow both public and our own requirements with regard to environment
We must have clear environmental goals based on risk analyzes, and a program for follow-up of these
We will work to continuously improve our environmental performance
We will work purposefully to ensure that the industry and vessels we deliver to use the best solutions, including environmental
We take into account the life cycle perspective in purchasing and development for both use and resale
We must ensure that everyone in our organization knows our environmental ambitions and how our business works to control our environmental aspects
We actively communicate our environmental performance to the general public
Our quality- and environmental effort is validated by external, sertified advisors and auditors by the ISO-standards 9001:2015 (quality) and 14001:2015 (environment).
Ing. Westad also wants to help our customers achieve their environmental and quality goals: most of our products are components contributing to correct operating temperature of machines and systems – in itself leading to lower emission and lower costs. We also provide systems to prevent fire and explosions, together with instrumentation for quality- and state control. Last – but not least – by choosing quality in every step of our business conduct we contribute to fewer customer complaints and returns of goods – hence to decreased transport load on our roads. This way a small company can still affect the environment considerably.
