Environmental Focus

Prerequisites for profitability

We believe that environmental aspects are prerequisites for profitability in the longer term. Complying with environmental legislation and remaining within limits go without saying.

However, we have also chosen to incorporate environmental work as an active and natural part of both development work and production. Our entire operations are characterized by taking responsibility, resource management, and an open attitude toward documenting and reporting environmental results. We also expect our subcontractors to share our views on the environment, in theory as well as practice.

Climate Neutrality and Meticulous Control

  • Our production units as well as the most of our workshops are climate neutral. 
  • We only buy ”green electricity” and return the same amount of energy to the system in the form of recycled materials from production. We recycle as much as possible.
  • We minimize energy consumption in production by using motion sensor lighting, heat exchangers and more.
  • 93% of all our freight is environmentally certified.
  • We are ISO 14001-certified by Norwegian auditor DNV GL.
  • All chemicals are controlled according to legislation. – We conduct risk analyses for every possible use of a substance, not only how we ourselves use it.

Future Plans

  • Life cycle analyses on all materials used in production.
  • Even more extensive recycling.
  • Work with optimized transportation.

Eco-friendly Products

  • We work hard to design machines that optimize mobility and limit ground pressure.
  • Our engines are specially built for forest machines, reducing both fuel consumption and emissions.
  • The most eco-friendly hydraulic oil is standard for our machines.
  • Hoses, filters, and pumps are optimized for biodegradable oils.
  • We have developed safer hydraulic couplings to avoid leakage.

Eco-friendly Engines

We are at the forefront of environmentally friendly technology for diesel engines, and are able to meet the legal requirements for up to EU Stage V/EPA Tier 4 Final. These are the toughest demands in engine legislation.

Our engines are SCR-based with e3 power technology, which means that they are extremely fuel efficient, generate higher profitability and have less impact on the environment. We also use a cleaner engine oil, CJ-4 class with low amounts of sulphur.
