The impulse from sustainability is in place, and it stems from three fundamental vectors. From the market, with the consumers change of habits and preferences: from the financial field, with products and services adapted to the new requirements: and from legislation which has implemented more rules and regulations. Agreements and commercial alliances, especially those which are closed with large industrial groups, have forced us to make an effort in all areas of the company,but now and more and more importantly, also in the field of sustainability. In AGA , this commitment and motivation grows daily, and so we have developed a process and methodology of work ASG+ which helps us to improve in three main areas.
- A (environmental) With criteria which relate to the activity of the company and its impact, directly and indirectly,on the environment.
- S (social) With a clear relationship between the company and society,with special attention on employees,shareholders,clients,suppliers and the nearby local communities .
- G (governance) Includes how the company is managed as well as the fulfilment of external and in-house norms and regulations.
The recent agreement signed with Schneider Electric, the French multinational in business for over 185 years, offering digital energy and automation solutions, and which was recognised as the most sustainable company in the world in 2021,is a clear example of the path undertaken by AGA in this field.
Carbon footprint reduction and energy efficiency
Setting the wheels in motion for ASG+ methodology,not only is a quantifiable objective in business terms,but is above all a model that helps us to progress as a company.
The process put in place and the commitment and responsibility acquired, arise from specific actions of internal organisation and work process, and also in areas such as reducing our carbon footprint and improving energy efficiency.
In AGA we have been planning and carrying out improvements in the manufacturing plant for some time,a process which requires incorporating new technology like the Cool Blaster Mist Control system supplied for the Citizen lathes.
An installation which incorporates advanced filter systems and safety sensors against possible incidents, also eliminating the fog and smoke produced by the actual functioning of the machines themselves.
