Environmental policy

Introduction 

As an organisation with the goal to create a clean living and working environment for everyone, RAVO has a code of conduct concerning her activities and products and their environmental effects, and takes into account environmental issues and risks. This code of conduct is described in this policy statement which is part of the company policy. 

The environmental policy of RAVO concerns the complete organisation and her products. Besides this, RAVO strives for the same environmental policy at her dealers and suppliers. This policy has been made available for third parties by the internet site. 

General Principals 

RAVO is aware that her products and the production process as well as the necessary marketing activities, may have a direct impact on the environment and that a considered (re)use of natural sources may decrease the impact on the environment.

RAVO will fully comply with to the environmental laws and regulation.

To comply the environmental demands, RAVO does not limit herself to only the production. With the development of new products, RAVO is taking the lead in her segment and takes the environment into account. Examples are EURO 6 motors, dust emission (PM 10 certified), silent sweepers, CNG driven sweepers and water recirculation systems.

RAVO aims at both customer friendliness as well as on decreasing mobility load. This means that:

  • For commuter traffic RAVO promotes public transfer and bicycle use. Home working is possible for office personnel. 
  • The use of conference calls is highly supported. 

Use of paper

RAVO pays systematic attention to the use of paper-saving procedures and devices. Within a mid-long term RAVO strives to be a paperless organisation.

Waste

RAVO will limit the environmental impact of waste by optimizing the waste collection. 

Continuous improvements
