Respect for the environment: a prerequisite for our suppliers

As part of its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policy, LIFTEUROP places respect for the environment at the heart of its concerns! The company pays special attention to sustainable development.

It all starts with the choice of materials used in the design of the accessories and lifting systems. “Our products are made primarily of steel, a sustainable product!” says buyer Julien Dethier.

Steel, a sustainable product

But if LIFTEUROP itself is attentive to the protection of the environment, the company expects just as much from its suppliers. Since steel is the main material used by the company, it is important that it choose its suppliers carefully! “Our suppliers must have social practices that are consistent with our own. This is very important to us. The ALIPA Group buys responsibly and expects its suppliers to share the same values of respect for the environment and sustainability. All our suppliers must, for example, sign specifications in which they commit to compliance with the European REACH regulations,” explains Julien Dethier. REACH (for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical products) is a European regulation adopted to better protect human health and the environment against the risks associated with chemical substances. Respect for the environment is a value that LIFTEUROP holds dear. It is with this in mind that the company has, amongst other things, adopted a new responsible purchasing policy.
