TMC Transformers adopts a policy aimed at protecting and preserving the environment
TMC is committed to optimizing its production processes to reduce waste and emissions by adopting solutions that have a low environmental impact.
Some of the objectives of our process engineering include:
- Producing transformers made with recyclable or recycled materials.
We are in the process of defining the Life Cycle Assessment and EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) certification of our transformers. These green passports will allow us to certify our commitment to the environment.
- Reducing and recovering waste.
The 90% of waste materials (mixed waste, wood packaging and plastics) are recovered by third-party companies. In addition, we are studying a chemical process that will allow us to recover the resins used in the production process.
- Actively encouraging partners to adopt our code of ethics, to commit to providing products and solutions that comply with EU directives, guaranteeing a verified certain origin.
All our products comply with the European Regulation 1907/2006 concerning the restriction of the use of certain dangerous substances, including electrical and electronic equipment, and/or substances prohibited according to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) – SVHC candidate list (as last updated).
- The ongoing search for eco-friendly materials and the use of energy from renewable sources. We have a 5000-square-metre array of solar panels that we installed on the roof of our headquarters in 2020.
CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility
TMC adheres to the 2011-14 EU strategy relating to Corporate Social Responsibility.
In this regard, we adopt and respect the principles of SA8000 guidelines, protecting workers’ rights and relationships between people in the company.
We also adhere to Regulation (EU) 2017/821, certifying that our raw materials do not come from areas of conflict or exploitation.
For some years now, we have also appointed a Corporate Mobility Manager who, with the support of municipal institutions, is responsible for developing a sustainable home-work mobility plan that discourages the use of private cars, helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
