Environmental Management has been good practice at Danish Steel Works Ltd. and NLMK DanSteel A/S.
NLMK DanSteel A/S has adopted an environmental policy, which are the principles and purposes and describing
- what environmental areas we want to improve
- how we want to do it
- when we must reach the goals
You can find the Environment Policy here
As an environmental conscious production company NLMK DanSteel A/S wants to minimize the environmental impact through development and improvement of the production techniques. We have just established the most modern Rolling Mill in Europe for making heavy quality plates. We want to be sure that the operation of the plate work can meet our own environmental requirements to limit the environmental impact, hence minimizing the noise pollution and hazardous emission to the air, water and soil. But we also have other environmental goals, i.e. we are working to ensure a maximum of waste recycling and that we will have a minimum of noise complaints. NLMK DanSteel A/S is one of the steel industry's large producers located in a smaller provincial town. We therefore work hard to limit the environmental impact on our surroundings and we make an effort to maintain a good contact to our neighbours in Frederiksværk through information about our activities.
The certificated Environmental Management System ISO 14001 shall ensure that.
- NLMK DanSteel A/S works in accordance with adopted environmental policy
- all relevant employees are involved in the company's environmental work and get an environmental conscious behaviour to contribute that NLMK DanSteel A/S gets most possible effect of the effort within the environmental area
- the legislation and all existing environmental demands and approval conditions are observed
- there will be openness about all questions in relation to environment.
Every year NLMK DanSteel A/S makes a "Green Account", which shows the consumption of raw materials and emissions of materials and waste products etc. The accounts are placed on our Danish webpage.
The environmental approval was renewed in 2006. NLMK DanSteel A/S took over the old approval from The Danish Steel Works A/S after the bankruptcy back in 2002 and it had to be renewed by Frederiksborg Amt. The Environmental Authority "Miljøstyrelsen" took over the competence in 2007 and thereby the work with inspection and approvals. Next revision will be in 2014.
An overview over the company approvals can be found in "Grønt Regnskab".
