BE Group has worked actively with quality assurance since the early 1990s. Today, the Group’s quality management system is certified in accordance with the latest issue of the SS-EN ISO 9001 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:

  • Customer satisfaction should put BE Group in a position to be a long-term reliable business partner

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 in all our countries and today we 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.
