Environment and responsibility
Tasso is an environmentally conscious company. It is in our DNA. We have a proactive approach to reducing our impact on the environment. We systematically map and analyse our data of emissions, waste, energy- and water consumption in order to keep track of the development.
Tasso is participating in the 3 year project starting in 2018 "From Philanthropy To Business". The project is facilitated by The Confederation of Danish Industry. The aim of the project is for the 21 participatig companies to integrate The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) into the company's strategy to ensure a sustainable development at the same time as creating value to the business.
The SDG's are an ambitious plan of action for people and planet. They are universal, applying to all nations and people, seeking to tackle inequality. They are wide ranging including ending poverty and hunger, ensuring sustainable consumption and production, and promoting peaceful and inclusive societies.
The agreement on a sustainable development agenda expresses a consensus by all governments that the SDGs can only be achieved with involvement of the private sector working alongside Governments, Parliaments, the UN system and other international institutions, local authorities, civil society, the scientific and academic community – and all people. Hence, Governments in the Post-2015 declaration “…call on all businesses to apply their creativity and innovation to solving sustainable development challenges”.
Manufacturing of cast iron includes some highly energy-consuming processes and this is why reduction of energy consumption is our priority at Tasso. We work systematically with the SDG no. 12 "Responsible Consumption and Production" because this is where we can make a real difference to the environment. It is our ambition to inspire customers, suppliers and other interested to do the same.
