We are commited to make a shift from the Industrial Revolution to the Industrial Evolution
Founders of secrid
Our holistic approach
Everything is connected. That's why we take care of all aspects to create a better future.
Producing locally. All Secrid products are 100% made in Europe
By producing as locally as possible, we can keep transport distances to a minimum.
It is our ambition to keep distances within our supply chain as short as possible. In our local production policy, we have stated that we prefer suppliers who are closest to our assembly locations, as long as they can provide the quality and craftsmanship required to make products that can last as long as possible. As a result, most parts are produced in the Netherlands and others in Italy. By producing as locally as possible, we can keep transport distances to a minimum, which enables us to minimise the impact on the environment. It also allows us to guarantee the quality of our products, facilitates efficient collaboration with our partners, and lets us continue to support local businesses.
The relation with Our suppliers
Together with our suppliers, we ensure that our products are consciously made, putting People and Planet first. We believe that the best results can be achieved by working in synergy. With that in mind, we have created a Code of Conduct that all our suppliers have signed to ensure that our standards for People, Environment, and Ethics are continuously met.Read Code of Conduct
Our care for the environment
Companies play an important role in changing their industry in order to make the world a better place, little by little. That is why we think it is only natural that we should take responsibility for the impact we have on the world. In order to be able to take this responsibility, we first need to understand exactly where this impact lies.
We have been conducting Life Cycle Assessments for several years in order to provide insight into the environmental footprint of our company, our supply chain and our products. Based on this information, we then developed a plan to take responsibility for our impact. This plan is based on the principles of prevention, measurement, reduction and compensation.
Through our design philosophy, sourcing and local production we are able to limit our impact even before the impact is created.
We measure the environmental footprint of our products from cradle to consumer, meaning from raw material extraction to the moment when products arrive at the customers.
We use the data and insights from measuring our impact to create an effective strategy, and we actively work on projects that contribute to reducing our impact.
We take responsibility for our impact by contributing to CO2 compensation projects in partnership with Fair Climate Fund. This way we balance emissions that cannot yet be eliminated.
