Creating a better world – one unit at a time

We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals

We are committed to the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact – The world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative

Lowenco has incorporated the ten principles for corporate sustainability in our strategies, processes, and policies, ensuring that we meet our fundamental responsibilities in the four areas of Human Rights, Labor, Environment, and Anti-corruption.

  •  Labour & Human rights
  1. We support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
  2. We make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
  3. We uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
  4. the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
  5. the effective abolition of child labour; and
  6. the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

We commit to safeguarding and strengthening labour and human rights, to promoting safe working conditions, mental health, and well-being and to giving our employees good learning opportunities in their work. We commit to treating all people with respect, to working against discrimination in all its forms and to be an inclusive organisation, which respects individual characteristics such as gender, age, sexual orientation, nationality, religious and political beliefs.

 

  •     Environment
  1. We support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
  2. Undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
  3. Encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

We commit to taking action to combat climate change, promoting access to sustainable energy and advancing energy efciency. We strive to reduce the cost of green energy because cheaper green energy technologies will increase the share of renewables in the global energy mix. In our own operations and in our supply chain, we commit to protecting the ecosystems, sourcing from sustainably managed forests and avoiding, minimising or restoring biodiversity loss. As for the natural resources that we rely on in our business, we commit to pursuing recycling and reuse to create more sustainable consumption and production.

 

  •     Anti-Corruption
  1. We work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.

The rule of law and absence of corruption are a precondi- tion for sound business and well-functioning societies.
We commit to complying with all applicable laws and regulations and to working against corruption and bribery in all their forms. We have zero tolerance of bribery, fraud and other types of inappropriate business behaviour. We pledge to uphold sound business practices in our organisa- tion and to promote such practices amongst our business partners.

Certifications

ISO 9001: 2015 certification

Lowenco holds an ISO 9001: 2015 certification within inspection, installation, service, repair and maintenance of refrigeration systems.

ISO 9001: 2015 is a Quality Management System, which provides an overview of our internal procedures. A Quality Management System is a management tool for streamlining our activities and thereby creating the best possible foundation for a production process.

KMO certification
(cradle to grave refrigerant handling)

KMO – Kølebranchens MiljøOrdning – is a union appointed by the Danish Ministry of Environment to manage correct refrigerant usage, reporting and recycling/disposal. Being a part of KMO ensures that the refrigerants are handled correctly both during usage and disposal.

Since a major part of Lowencos deliveries are connected with the usages and potentially also the discarding hereof, we ensure that the materials are handled in the most environmental friendly way in order for us to leave a green footprint.
