Corporate & Social Responsibility
Hydram Sheet Metalwork takes its corporate and social responsibilities for health & safety in the workplace and for protecting the environment very seriously.
Protecting the environment
Led by a dedicated SHE manager the company achieved the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard in 2010 and constantly reviews its progress against environmental performance targets which include pollution prevention, reducing its carbon footprint, minimising use of packaging, and waste segregation within its precision sheet metal fabrication business.
All products are fabricated from metals. In 2018, the average carbon dioxide emissions (CO2e) value to produce a typical part was 0.9kg. This value includes procurement of materials, manufacturing and delivery of the part. At end of life all products and packaging can be recycled. If products are not recycled any waste products should be disposed of in accordance with local environmental control regulations.
