Environmental responsibility

Our engineering is firmly based on the principles of sustainable development


The day-to-day work of Etteplan’s environmental management is based on the standards specified in the ISO 14001 environmental system. The goals of our environmental policy include minimizing the environmental impacts of our own operations, training our personnel to recognize the environmental impacts of their work, and helping our partners observe responsibility in environmental matters.

Targets and results for 2018


Etteplan sets targets for its environmental efforts in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard. The targets and results for 2018 are presented below.

Moderate direct environmental impacts


As an expert organization, the direct environmental impacts of Etteplan’s own operations are moderate. In addition to the electricity consumption of Etteplan’s offices, the environmental impacts arise primarily from travel, which has been significantly reduced thanks to electronic meeting technology. The CO2 emissions of air travel are monitored based on information supplied by an external service provider.




Designing eco-efficient solutions

Each year, we design hundreds of solutions for the world’s leading machinery and equipment suppliers. They help our customers create solutions that are eco-efficient with respect to their manufacturability, usability and recyclability. We develop environmentally friendly technologies and cleantech products, and contribute to the energy efficiency of our customers’ equipment, machinery and production facilities.

Product design takes into consideration the product’s full lifecycle environmental footprint: from raw materials to production, product use and disposal orrecycling. For instance Etteplan’s technical documentation solutions are environmentally friendly and reduce the need for printed materials, as manuals and instructions can be distributed to maintenance and service personnel digitally.
