CAREL and Sustainability

According to the CAREL Mission, we continuously improve products and processes, fully respecting overall compliances, to enhance the growth worldwide through a lean organization built by aware people.

 

CAREL has always recognised the importance of sustainable development and has applied this principle to its entire manufacturing chain. Its focus on the environment is an intrinsic part of its business and an ongoing daily commitment, allowing it to look to the future of our planet with confidence.

The CAREL Group’s sustainability policy blends environmental needs, in accordance with local and international regulations, with its system of values and responsibilities. CAREL’s commitment is translated into compliance with standards and regulations by all its sites, in line with the relevant actions and best practices.

In 2018, CAREL has summarised its operating practices in its Code of Ethics and its Policies on Diversity, Human Rights, the Environment and Occupational Health and Safety, to emphasise its commitment to comply with the highest sustainability standards and to define reference principles for social and environmental topics. 
CAREL also formally approved the group’s Anti-corruption Policy as additional support and to monitor this topic.
