We raise the bar for more sustainable products
Our sustainability rating From Good to Great:
We are proud to set ambitious sustainability goals but it’s important to turn ambitions into action, relying on transparent processes with tangible criteria. That’s why we’ve introduced our sustainability rating From Good to Great, a clever system that ranks all items in the Profile Store based on their sustainability impact. Products that don’t live up to the level 1 criteria, which means exceeding industry standards, are not even added to the assortment. The rating makes it easier to shop products that reflect our values – from manufacturing to finished product. Wherever possible we always aim to increase the level of sustainability, moving From Good to Great.
We know how they are made. We care about how they are managed.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We actively care about how
things are made
Profile Store offers a wide range of Epiroc branded items.
Every effort is made to reduce environmental impact and promote sustainability in manufacture and transport.
Sourcing – responsible partners
The Profile Store items are manufactured in factories that have proven social and environmental standards.
We ensure that everything is sourced responsibly and that manufacturers have signed up to relevant requirements.
Auditing – regular inspection
Social and production facility audits are carried out by a globally accredited body – Asia Inspection. Audits can include safety procedure inspection, working hour analysis, waste management inspection, factory employee interviews and documentation and certificate assurances.
Improving working conditions – well being
Asia Inspection reports and our own visits to high-volume manufacturers make it possible for us to propose and drive beneficial change in the lives and well being of factory employees.
Verification – better insight
Auditing and reporting serve to help manufacturers improve their processes and manufacturing output. We carry out regular partner verification and help raise the standard of products and services in developing markets.
Impact – thinking green
When we choose a the Profile Store manufacturing partner we place great importance on how production impacts the surrounding environment. For example, we make sure that waste water is used effectively.
Offset – giving back
Even though we do our best to minimize the environmental effect of transporting goods over long distances, there is still carbon emission to compensate. Profile Store supports certified climate projects such as the first wind farm in Nicaragua, a landfill gas plant in Turkey and a ceramic water purifier project in Cambodia.
