Wendre is aware that success built on the growth of consumption comes with a price. That’s why we ask of every potential investment: Is it environmentally sustainable? Only a positive answer is met with action.
A good example was the opening of our new factory in Pärnu, Estonia in 2005. It was built in accordance with the strictest requirements of the ISO 14001 environment management and quality standard.
We’ve invested heavily to save on factory heating, and equipment is acquired with low power consumption in mind. Heating and lighting systems are “smart” and minimize energy use. We have begun to use live monitoring of major power consumers to develop optimal working cycles.
