The concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), refers to the social and environmental will of a company, or rather, its commitment towards behaving ethically and correctly, a behaviour which must go beyond mere respect for the law, by making business choices which are also based on respect for the environment.
Nortech Elettronica S.r.l. deeply cares about the topic of “Environmental Respect", an important one for both its employees, and for the environment that surrounds it. Thus, through its quality system team, the company tries to bring the concepts of energy and environment together.
For Nortech Elettronica S.r.l., places the importance of both health and safety of its employees on top of all priorities. The quality system is constantly looking for plans to eliminate possible accidents for its employees. Therefore, the company can ensure its compliance with all current safety laws.
On May 17th, 2017, EU Regulation 2017/821 was published, which establishes obligations in the supply chain for UE importers of tin, tantalum and gold originating from conflict or high-risk areas.
Therefore, in recent years, particular attention has been paid to what has been defined as “Conflict Minerals", which are materials coming from the Democratic Republic of Congo and its surrounding areas. The mining and processing of such materials in these areas funds many armed conflicts. The minerals acting as their underlying cause are widely used in the electronics industry, and particularly in consumer electronics such as cell phones or personal computers.
Nortech Elettronica S.r.l. is very attentive to this topic, which is why it undertakes not to voluntarily introduce parts containing minerals from the “Conflict Region" geographical area.
Nortech Elettronica S.r.l. conducts an investigation activity (EU Regulation 2017/821 (15)) towards its suppliers to find out the origins of all products.
