Sustainable development

Since the AXENCO Group is dedicated to creating comfortable environments, we are intrinsically concerned with the issues of environmental sustainability, improving energy efficiency, reducing waste and finding affordable of solutions.



In this context :

 Our activities are driven by a continuous application of the scientific method to improving practical problems.
 The aim of our innovation is to generate savings in the areas of energy and equipment utilization (by means of energy use gauges, occupancy detectors, etc.) and our products are designed to be affordable for all budgets.

But, because we are first of all a company on a human scale, where people work together with a common project and common values, we apply our values to our daily routines and supply chain.



For our people, this commitment translates into :

 Making them aware of good practices in energy saving.

- Flexibility in working hours, so as to facilitate car-sharing.

- The ability to work remotely.

- We use electronic media instead of paper where possible

- An “open door” policy” exists for all staff members, at all management levels.

- We promote and support the career progression of our staff members; there is a zero tolerance approach to discrimination..


More generally, our aim is to provide our people with a safe working environment that is healthy, fair and efficient.


Through this commitment in the coming years we will keep a very low staff turnover rate and to develop our human resources still further.


For all teams in the Axenco group, our approach translates into simple and actionable principles :



Working environment :

Our production sites are located outside of urban areas to enhance the work environment and provide employment opportunities to local communities.


We use methods which enable us to save energy in our premises (e.g. heating is lowered when premises are vacant, occupancy detectors are used to manage lighting, low energy consumption lamps are employed, limited use is made of air conditioning, etc.).




Purchasing :

We prefer to do business with suppliers which have an effective environmental policy, one which is formally set out and is responsible. At the very least we ensure that suppliers do indeed comply with their legal obligations regarding the environment.





Transportation/ Logistics :

We optimize the loading of our trucks in order to reduce the environmental footprint of product transport.

We only use recyclable materials for palletisation. As far as possible we use cardboard for packaging (instead of plastic), and avoid polystyrene where possible.







These actions exceed the requirements set out by regulations (i.e. the RoHS Directive and WEEE Directives) in terms of product development and manufacturing :

- We regularly carry out value analyses in order to keep the materials we use to a strict minimum. We also carry out an impact study before we start using a new consumable component as part of our production process.

- We prefer to use recyclable materials, which have a low impact on the environment :

- The oil used in our radiators does not contain any additives which are harmful to the environment.

- We have reduced the amount of glycol in the mixture used in our towel rails.

- One of the production sites we use is already certified ISO 14001, a second has begun the accreditation procedure, and a third complies with the main requirements of the standard.

- We sort and recycle waste in our production sites (plastics, electronics, cardboard, etc.).

- We apply a strict recycling waste policy in our production sites to prevent any risk of pollution: Special facilities (e.g. holding tanks and local decontamination resources) are dedicated to operations relating to fluids, during storage and during the course of production processes.



It is our belief that each and every one amongst us understand, deploy and own these principles and actions, on a daily basis – because they are part of who we are and what we do.
