Aalborg Portland has now published its 2014 Environmental Report, including green accounts and work environment report for its Danish cement activities
In 2014, Aalborg Portland continued the planned activities set out in its action plans in order to meet its overall environmental, energy and work environment targets.
Our efforts have resulted in reducing and adjusting our consumption of electricity and fuel in line with the Danish Government’s objective to intensify efforts to save energy and desire to make use of waste and residual products, with greater emphasis on resource efficiency in what is known as a circular economy. The environmental statement includes information about the following major activities:
Partnering with industrial firms and other players in society, we continue to have much focus on ex-ploiting the potential of utilising waste and residual products as a replacement for fossil fuels or natural raw materials.
In the time to come, our focus will be on maintaining the existence of a framework for a good working environment, i.a. by increased efforts directed at promoting job satisfaction, stress management and reducing workloads. We believe that a proper foundation will make us capable of reducing the number of work-related accidents. Our primary focus is on heavy lifting and falls.
The 2014 Environmental Report has been reviewed by external, certified auditors. The report con-forms to the authorities’ requirements for EMAS reports and green accounts.
