Quality & Environment

Quality policy

BE Group has worked actively with quality assurance since the early 1990s. Today, the Group’s quality management system is SP certified in accordance with the latest issue of the SS-EN ISO 9001:2008 standard. In our day-to-day work, we also apply an internal quality policy to ensure that the customer receives what we call “the right quality” and we promise each Be Group customer that:

  • We will be a long-term reliable partner.
  • Products shall correspond well to our customers’ requirements and expectations.
  • Our personnel will always meet customers’ demands and expectations, by acting correctly from the outset.
  • All employees are to be involved in quality efforts.
  • The quality system will be developed on an ongoing basis

Environmental work

With our position between steel producers and customers, it is in the area of transport in particular that BE Group is able to help lessen the environmental impact. In addition, we work continuously to improve our own facilities’ energy consumption, emissions and waste management.

Over the past year, we have carried out environmental certification processes for all Group facilities in Business Area CEE and today all units in Finland, Latvia, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia are certified according to the ISO 14001 standard. Consequently, 94 percent (2011) of BE Group’s total sales are now delivered from environmentally certified units, and the longer-term ambition is to raise this further.

Environmental policy

A Group-wide environmental policy forms the basis of our environmental work. This is updated on an ongoing basis and has also been developed to make it simple for all employees to understand how they can reduce our environmental impact in their day-to-day tasks. Among other things, the environmental policy states that BE Group shall:

  • As a minimum comply with current environmental legislation and requirements from local authorities.
  • Be economical in our use of energy and natural resources.
  • Work towards continuous improvement and to prevent negative environmental impacts. The environmental status is assessed on an ongoing basis through measurements and audits.
  • Work to decrease the amount of waste and emissions from our facilities.
  • Identify and foster opportunities to make adjustments benefiting the environment when making investments and changes in processes and facilities.
  • Maintain a high level of awareness on environmental issues through ongoing training.
  • Document and communicate our environmental work to our employees and to provide open and objective information to external stakeholders.
  • Maintain adequate preparedness for dealing with environmental incidents and unintentional environmental emissions.
