Environmentally and socially responsible.
As a good neighbor, we are committed to global sustainability and strive to be respectful stewards in the communities where we operate. EJ conducts business around the world in compliance with regional environmental legislation and approved codes of practice. We understand that "being green" is not just a saying; it's a critical guiding principal that is exemplified in the way we conduct business every single day.
We are proactive in the following:
- Educating our employees about environmental responsibility.
- Creating partnerships with the communities in which we operate.
- Using best in class environmental abatement technologies to contain and reduce our emissions.
- Having our facilities use processes and controls that minimize our impact on the environment.
- Continuously improving efficiencies and reducing internal waste streams.
- Encouraging the use of castings in their natural state without coatings or paint; knowing that over time iron gains a natural patina that resists rust and corrosion.
- Designing innovative products that use less material, yet still maintain the structure integrity and load rating.
We take great pride in the fact that each day we recycle hundreds of tons of post-consumer material into new useful products. Many of our worldwide facilities operate environmental management systems that are certified to the standards set down in the international standard ISO14001.
As a global enterprise we are able to control and manage the life cycle of our products from cradle to grave. This lifecycle management gives us a unique advantage of being able to address environmental concerns at every step of development. Our products have an enduring service life, and typically require little to no maintenance once they are installed in the field.
EJ is determined to improve upon the environmental legacy that has guided it throughout its storied history. Our customers demand that we continue to be good stewards of the environment and be good partners in the community. EJ proudly accepts this responsibility and is committed to delivering the unparalleled environmental leadership they deserve.
