EcoVadis provides sustainability ratings worldwide. Veko has been assessed on its environmental, social and ethical performance. At Veko, sustainability and continuous improvement are high on the agenda. This assessment helps to make our business processes even more sustainable.
A Veko profile is more than just a carrier profile. On top of the profile, there is a very smart addition: the cable tray! You can choose from various heights and whether no, 1 or 2 partitions are required. This cable tray is used for data, power, speaker or other cables that can be laid in one go without having to install a separate tray. This saves time, an extra cable tray, less disruption of the business process (or downtime) and therefore money!
Veko has taken a major step towards further improving the sustainability of its vehicle fleet. The premises at Witte Paal 7 have been fitted with two charging points with charging capacity for four cars. Four diesel cars from the vehicle fleet have been replaced with Teslas. This represents a huge CO2 reduction.
By way of comparison, the average fuel consumption of a diesel car is 1:15. With an average mileage of 30,000 km per year this amounts to 2,000 litres of diesel. In terms of emissions, 2,000 litres x 3.23 (CO2 emission/l) represents 6,460 kg. By introducing four Teslas, we therefore achieve an annual emission saving of 25,840 kg of CO2.
Veko has reached level 3 of the CO2 Performance Ladder, maintaining a clear and consistent focus on sustainable business practice. We are constantly in search of new ways to reduce our CO2 emissions. For more information: https://www.veko.com/sustainability/co2-footprint.html
If you search online for replacements for your TL fittings in your existing Veko light line, you will probably come across various suppliers selling their own version of our fittings. In the market we see more and more parties advertising the fact that they renovate Veko lineair lighting. A luminaire of brand X is then installed in your existing light line. If you opt for this solution, our guarantee will no longer apply. Brand X only provides a guarantee on the light fitting and not on the complete light line as is standard at Veko.
A new period is dawning for Veko Lightsystems; Menno & Lianne Veldboer will leave Veko on 1 January.
This is only possible if a good follow-up has been arranged for Menno Veldboer. Veko has found a suitable CCO in Manon Schuurmans. From June she worked closely together with Menno so that she laid a good foundation to take over the tasks as CCO completely. Menno has complete confidence in Manon.
Veko Lightsystems International BV thanks Menno & Lianne for their many years of successful work. We wish them a lot of success with their new challenges.
