Sustainability

The AVK Group recognises sustainability as a factor of vital importance. With a clear policy implemented globally, we do our utmost to make a difference in this area.

Our production

In our production, we benefit from modern production facilities and a safe and healthy work environment. We care for the environment and for sustainable solutions, and we are proud of having obtained several certifications;

  • ISO 9001 - quality management 
  • ISO / TS 29001 – quality management in the oil & gas industry
  • ISO 14001 - environmental management
  • OHSAS 18001 - occupational health and safety management 
The above certifications demonstrate our reliability as global leaders when it comes to creating sustainable solutions across the world. Solutions which are always created in a decent, safe and secure work environment. 

The AVK Group has outlined very strict objectives for our production companies as far as electricity and water consumption are concerned. Consequently, all AVK companies put high efforts into reducing consumption wherever they can. 

Every AVK employee is motivated and committed to identify areas of improvement in the way we do business to the benefit of the environment. We do not only focus on activities and processes in our manufacturing companies, but also on the behaviour and business models of our suppliers.

Responsible Business Partners

AVK promises quality in every step of the partnership process. This also includes a transparent and sustainable chain of supplies - not only covering our own work but also the work performed by our network of suppliers to the AVK Group.

The AVK Group has agreed to adhere to standards that our suppliers will need to comply with as well in order to be a certified supplier of the Group. In a world of intensified globalisation, with resultant increasing business relations between countries and cultures, it is vital for the AVK Group to achieve sustainability throughout the supply chain. We wish to show and assure our customers that we work with responsible partners who adhere to the same standards as we do.

Therefore, we only cooperate with partners with high ethical standards. Partners who also feel a strong commitment to comply with international legislation in the field of labour. At AVK, we especially respect all child labour restrictions throughout the entire supply chain, and we do not accept any discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

A global presence demands high ethical standards. Throughout our organisation and in all our actions, we therefore recognise the principles laid down in the United Nations Global Compact document, which is a set of core values in the following areas:
