Sustainability

Sustainability is more than just environmental protection.
We take responsibility.

Sustainability is more than just environmental protection. Sustainability is a principle of action, which is based on sustainable management with resources from ecology, economy and social issues. In addition to nature, we are primarily committed to the people inside and outside our company to act in accordance with the principle of sustainability.

What does that mean at mateco?

Optimizing of our processes

We value paperless processes and introduce digital alternatives wherever possible, e.g. when recording pickups of our working platforms. Waste separation is a matter of course in all of our locations. In addition, we have hazardous materials such as oils, lubricants, tires, batteries, etc. disposed exclusively by certified service providers. On request we can offer devices with bio-oil and only required and permitted chemical cleaning agents are used in the cleaning process of our machine fleet. The work clothing for our industrial employees is rental clothing, which optimizes the entire clothing cycle and is cleaned in an environmentally friendly and water-saving manner. We regularly question our suppliers' minimum requirements in terms of quality, the environment, occupational safety and corporate social responsibility. When purchasing our IT technology, we pay attention to the appropriate environmental label.

 

Sustainable building management

When building new buildings as well as our existing buildings, we always check whether we can generate our own electricity using solar systems, e.g. for charging electrical devices. We use energy-saving elements, be it in heating systems or in the lighting technology on our office floors. Wherever possible, we invest in green areas instead of concrete areas.

 

Investing in a sustainable machine fleet

Sustainability has been a growing value in recent years, also in our business. mateco believes that it is possible to achieve even more sustainability. Today, 60% of our rental fleet consists of environmentally friendly aerial platform, and more and more are being added. Green lifts are machines with an electric, hybrid or dual energy drive. These machines can be recognised by their green emblem. mateco, the more sustainable equipment rental! With the electric and hybrid machines we offer a solution that makes it possible to work without CO2 emissions. This means that operations in sensitive areas, such as indoor use or noise protection areas, can be carried out without hindrance. Operations in urban or confined areas are thus possible without CO2 emissions and noise pollution.

We have many other electrically driven work platforms and hybrids in our portfolio. These new forms of drive are also increasingly being integrated into our multi-hire fleet, which has a reputation for being a polluter until now.

We would be happy to offer you the right working platform with electric drive for your next application. Simply use our rental request and select the drive type "Electric" in the first step "Define requirements"!

Sustainable human resources management

For us, sustainable development is a process of supporting human development in an equitable way.

The HR function supports a sustainable organization by promoting fairness, diversity, inclusion and respect for the fundamental rights of everyone and by ensuring good working conditions.

For mateco HR, sustainable HR management means: the creation and implementation of fundamental HR processes, which are themselves based on the principles of sustainability. We support environmentally friendly practices.

For example: rational use of resources by digitising our personnel files, implementing paperless payroll, etc. . ensuring inclusive and equitable education for our employees, promoting career development and lifelong learning opportunities, achieving gender equality, promoting well-being, inclusion and diversity, etc.

Protecting and promoting the health of our employees

For us, sustainability means paying special attention to our human resources, i.e. our employees. That is why occupational health and safety plays a key role in sustainability at mateco. For example, mateco Luxembourg is certified "SuperDrecksk√ęscht". This certification stands for the judicious use of available raw materials and energy sources. In addition, we offer our employees various health promotion measures and above-average benefits, such as height-adjustable desks and regular training on occupational safety.
