Sustainability is an important focus area for LEAX and something the Company has been working on proactively for over 25 years. LEAX was an early adopter of ISO 14001 certification, and was, for example, an early adopter of the UN Global Compact in Sweden in 2014.
LEAX is also committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and has identified six of these goals that the Company is particularly committed to: good health and well-being, gender equality, sustainable energy for all, decent work and economic growth, sustainable consumption, and production, and combating climate change.
In 2021, the Company signed the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which means that the Company will work over the next 24 months to establish company targets related to reduced greenhouse gas emissions with the aim of contributing to the global Paris Agreement (COP21, Paris, December 2015). In its daily work and in its sustainability policy, LEAX takes into account global trends and challenges, international standards for responsible corporate behaviour and the expectations of various stakeholders in the value chain.
LEAX has a well-developed sustainability strategy built on three principles:
LEAX is committed to replacing fossil fuels with clean energy sources to minimise emissions from both production and transport
LEAX works to improve efficiency of, as well as minimise, resource consumption
Systematic approach to ensuring safety, respecting human rights and realising the full potential of its employees
Quality & Environment
From the very first step, the quality of your product is our main focus. For us, quality assurance and the protection of the environment is very important. Therefore, we develop stable processes that follow the guidelines of our certifications (ISO TS 16949, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and VDA 6.1). Industry standard quality assurance tools like measuring, function tests and metallurgical examination ensure that our customers will only receive products of the highest quality.
Logistics Excellence – Speed
High delivery precision is a standard requirement from our customer base. We are flexible to fulfill such needs on Logistics. Our offering ranges from pick-up by the customer to Just-In-Sequence (JIS) deliveries where we have proven results of zero default over several years.
Fast time to market
We have decades of experience in industrialisation of products. We will find the right production set-up and we will ensure that your project will be implemented in the fastest possible way. Thanks to our global footprint, we are able to start one project in several locations simultaneously so even very challenging projects with numerous components and a variety of needed processes can be managed fast.
When implementation timing is critical we often buy used machines, because they are much faster available than new machines. Our experienced maintenance technicians rebuild them as necessary to suit production needs. Moreover, we have a comprehensive network of suppliers for machining tools that secure shortest possible lead times on tooling.
Quality, Environmental and Work environmental policies
Quality, Environmental and Work environmental issues are an integrated part of the daily activity. LEAX fulfills all legal requirements, other requirements and works continuously to develop our standards to be a good example for our employees, customers and for other interested parties.
