Corporate social responsibility at Logisticon

The objective

Corporate social responsibility and environmental management are inextricably linked to Logisticon Water Treatment's & Logisticon Verhuur's organisation and our employees. By developing and producing in a sustainable manner, with a balanced balance between the environment, finances and social welfare and striving for a minimal or even preventable environmental and / or harmful (lasting) effects for people and the environment.

Environmental Policy and Corporate Social Responsibility

For Logisticon, the development and production of sustainable systems is the standard approach. This is seen in, for instance, selecting the most energy-efficient solutions for the entire life cycle. In cooperation with our clients and suppliers, the aim is to implement the best products while ensuring the most efficient use of natural resources.

In the interests of the quality of our products and services, but especially for the safety and health of our employees, subcontractors and third parties, the working conditions and the associated care for safety, health, well-being and the environment highest priority. Personal injury, material and environmental damage must always be prevented. We are committed to ensuring environmental care and sustainability in accordance with the most recent standard ISO9001, ISO14001 and VCA **

Logisticon takes a sustainable approach

Design and proposal stage

A permanent aspect of a design is the determination of the Life Cycle Costs, with chemical and energy use being the most important parameters. An important part of a design is the determination of the Life Cycle Costs, where in particular chemicals and energy are the most important parameters. Attention is also given to this in the tendering stage. For example, Logisticon has been able to motivate its customers to choose a different and better solution than the customer initially had in mind. These innovative solutions are carefully evaluated in consultation with the customer and the potential suppliers. This does not only concern investment costs, but also the total costs of financial ownership, operating and maintaining the installation(s). Also referred to as TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). Reducing operational costs, maintenance and replacement are crucial here. This often also has a direct positive environmental effect.

Production department

The production department continuously invests in and works with equipment according to the latest state of the art to improve quality and save energy. In order to prevent unnecessary cutting and welding (and therefore the loss of material) of piping, a T-drill has been purchased.

All "old" lights are replaced by LED lamps and in rooms where there is no continuous presence, motion switches are placed on the lighting. We have invested in own stainless steel pickling and passivation facilities, separated chemical storage and waterproof washing places. This prevents frequent transport to external pickling, ensures safe storage of chemicals and prevents contamination of the subsoil.

Innovative projects

To be able (to continue) to operate sustainably, Logisticon is always searching for innovative technology. This receives the majority of the Research & Development (R&D) budget. Our research includes as standard projects for optimising the operation and reducing the (chemical) cleaning of membranes. In addition, we constantly work alone and in collaboration with clients and suppliers to improve processes, in which the three Ps always recur (People, Planet, Profit).

Future and C2C + 3P’s

Terms such as Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C), circular economy, reusable materials influence our thinking about functionality of installations and use of materials. Not only design and construction are central, but the end of the life function must also be taken into account. Various suppliers are already starting to work out solutions in this direction and Logisticon is working with these companies to implement these innovations. But thinking in the 3 Ps (People, Planet and Profit) also needs to be further developed. It is our challenge to allow these new developments to be a real impulse for even more sustainable projects in a relatively static market.
