About Welcon

Environmental Protection plays an important role in the business philosophy of WELCON A/S. 

We are committed to protecting the environment and we believe that any company has a responsibility not to compromise the ability of future generations to fully enjoy the benefits of a clean environment. The impact that any of our activities, or even those of our customers or suppliers, might have on the environment is for us an important consideration.


As a consumer, we will seek to reduce our consumption of non-renewable resources, increase our use of renewable resources, and whenever practicable will select materials which have the least impact on the environment throughout their life cycle.

Environmental Protection has equal status to considerations for Health, Safety and Production Quality.

In confirming our commitment to protection of the environment we will treat environmental regulations that apply to our activities as minimum standards and where appropriate aim to better them.

Responsibility for the Environmental Policy and Supporting Statement lies with the Managing Director. The Environmental Policy will be brought to the attention of all employees and will be reviewed annually to assess its effectiveness and compliance with environmental law and that it reflects changing needs and circumstances.

Welcon A/S is certified according to ISO 14001.
