One of the greatest problems of developed societies is that the maintaining of its growth is strongly linked to unbridled consumption of resources needed to produce energy, which obviously causes a sustainability problem to the medium and long term.
EGATEL’s commitment to sustainable business development begins in the R & D, laying down design policies aimed to achieve energy-efficient equipment, obtaining a higher performance on each new transmitter family.
The development of energy efficient equipment can reduce operating costs by demanding less energy consumption and reduced heat generation inside the equipment, thereby reducing cooling needs.
Another important issue for companies committed to sustainability is the management of dangerous waste generated during the ordinary activities of the company.
The management of dangerous waste is defined by different procedures and regulations approved by national and autonomic governments. The collection of this waste is carried out by Authorized Processing Companies of Dangerous Waste.
EGATEL is also associated to the ECOTIC Foundation. The main aim of the ECOTIC Foundation is the environmental conservation and the sustainable development. For this reason, their main activity is the waste management of electrical and electronic devices produced or put on the market by their associate members.
Within this initiative, without spirit of profit, manufacturers, distributors and persons in charge of the putting on the market of the above mentioned devices and equipments can take part, across their adhesion to the same ones, paying special attention to the fulfilment of the current residues regulation in every moment, as well as the subscription of the public and private agreements necessary for the attainment of their purposes.
