Paroc has launched its 2014 sustainability report, which lays out details of the company’s programmes to drive long-term economic, social, and environmental value.
The highlights of Paroc’s performance in 2014 within its five focus areas – customer, growth, innovation, efficiency and sustainability, and people – include:
- The implementation of further occupational health and safety (OHS) measures that resulted in a lower accident rate and fewer sick leave absences. The work towards achieving top results in this area continues with the aim of reaching the key strategic target of zero accidents.
- Improvements in the company’s internal energy efficiency: during 2014 alone, the amount of energy Paroc consumed in its operations decreased by the equivalent of the CO2 emissions of almost 2 million family cars.
- Successful efforts to raise the importance of fire safety in European residential and non-residential buildings, and to encourage the development of uniform and up-to-date fire safety standards.
