We are aware of the contribution we need to make to make the world a more sustainable place. With every step we take in our business operations, we focus more and more on helping he climate and people. For us, healthy business operations mean corporate social responsibility, safe and sustainable products and reducing our environmental impact.

Caring for human beings

Tele Radio makes products that provide a more efficient and safe working environment. We serve the well-being of our users. Also, within our own companies we work towards healthy working conditions. We encourage respect for each other, good management, adequate supervision, good working conditions and job satisfaction. Our employees feel responsible for their impact on society and the environment. This is our Swedish DNA, the country where Tele Radio was founded, and where our headquarters are based. For years our home country has been at the top of sustainability. 

Caring for the environment

Our company has a policy of sustainability. This is part of our mission to manufacture and supply products that continue to work under the most extreme conditions. The lifetime of our transmitters and receivers reduces the required raw materials and energy. In our business processes, too, we are committed to minimizing environmental impact through sustainable packaging, green energy, more efficient transport, and reduced waste production.   

Examples of our commitment

The Green Future of Dakar

Tele Radio is sponsoring the Firemen Dakarteam as the team and rally reflect our brand values: safe, smart, strong. The rally is a hotspot of technological innovation like it was from the beginning of car and motorsports. For the future, the team and rally are taking major steps towards sustainability. From an Internal Combusting Engine, via hybrid power, the team will participate in the Dakar Rally will a fully energy neutral truck by the year 2030. The current solar powered encampment will be self-sustainable by the year 2025.

Sustainable packaging

We no longer consider packaging a waste, but as a resource for new products. Preferably, our packaging consists of one type of material. Therefore, our transmitters and receivers are packed in recycled and unbleached cardboard. Also, the foam padding used to cover the product in the packaging has been eliminated and replaced with the same type of cardboard. We leave out superfluous parts as much as possible. This is one of our contributions to sustainability. 

Eco-friendly tape

Packaging tapes made of PVC or PP are a major threat to the environment. Plastic does not decompose, but slowly breaks down into microplastics that accumulate in the water, air, and soil. Tele Radio uses paper tape with a natural rubber adhesive for its shipments. The brown tape is suitable for recycling.

100% energy neutral

Tele Radio stimulates sustainable entrepreneurship within its companies. Examples are remote working, the use of electric cars, green energy and the use of energy generated by solar panels. The new building of Tele Radio Benelux is equipped with 80 solar panels that provide the total energy needed for the building. Similar initiatives are being developed all over the world.
