Socomec provides innovative solutions that focus on the energy performance of low voltage networks: the Group helps its customers to design electrical facilities that consume less energy, are better managed and more environmentally friendly.
Focus on ecodesign
In addition to complying with the regulatory requirements and environmental standards applicable to our products, Socomec seeks to regularly increase the proportion of eco-designed products. The Group is therefore preparing for the inclusion of eco-design in the framework of ISO 14001 certification.
Socomec's aim is to anticipate the primary needs of our customers with:
- safe products, limiting the use of hazardous substances,
- cost effective products, by improving their energy and material efficiency,
- recyclable products, anticipating their end-of-life.
Our customers have access to information concerning the environmental performance of our products. Socomec has been working for almost ten years on eco-declarations called Product Environmental Profiles (PEP) that describe the characteristics and environmental impacts of our products. These declarations are certified by PEP Ecopassport.
At the end of their lifecycle, our products become Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE): they contain components that can have an impact on the environment, while at the same time offering a high potential for recovery of the materials of which they are composed. The Group collects and recycles its end-of-life products in partnership with the Ecosystem eco-organisation.
