Sustainability and the environment at Algeco
Sustainability and circularity are an integral part of our business model
Through our in-house expertise, we design modular solutions with sustainability in mind. We are committed to using sustainable materials, improving environmental performance wherever possible and delivering a social benefit through our smart space applications.
We also maintain an ongoing dialogue with our customers to help them with their own sustainability initiatives and goals.
Our modular units can be adapted and reconfigured to suit the changing requirements of our customers, with units that can be easily moved or modified as the needs of our customers change.
We always reuse existing modules. With continuous refurbishment, we extend their lifetime without compromising on quality or performance.
At the end of their economic life, our units are either sold to further extend their life or dismantled into components, with up to 96% of the material being recyclable.
In production, we use lean manufacturing techniques, strict design specifications, and inventory and quality control to reduce waste. The total amount of waste generated by the production of a modular building produced in our factory is about half that of traditional building constructions.
Finally, because the production and assembly of our buildings takes place outside the factory, our people benefit from safer working conditions compared to conventional on-site construction.
