Our take on environmental policies
By Mansoor Khan, QHSE Engineer, Advanced Watertek
Today it is a growing pressure on the environment due to pollution, inefficient use of resources and improper waste management. Advanced Watertek assumes a progressive stance on environmental issues. We commit to minimise any negative impact that our production activities or our water treatment systems may have on the environment.
With our commitment in mind, we regularly conduct in-house awareness training focusing on our environmental policies. These training programs aim to educate our team, and to mitigate the adverse environmental impact. In addition, we ensure that our internal environmental policies and objectives are clearly communicated both within the organisation and to our clients, agents and suppliers.
Disposal management and environmental friendly components
Advanced Watertek’s aim is to design innovative and environmentally friendly water treatment solutions. We continuously strive to source components that are energy efficient. Furthermore, we dispose all waste in compliance with environmental policies, the Local Municipality’s Technical Guidelines and the mandatory elements of an environmental management system. We also have procedures in place for recycling and waste management at all our offices, manufacturing facilities and warehouses.
