Green Plant Vision

Beside the ethical obligation to hand over our planet to future generations, we also think that sustainability will become a condition to run a profitable company in the future. For this reason, SKAKO drives its green initiatives concurrently with the company’s general development and financial ability without trying to save the world at the cost of a reasonable and future business operation and management.

Sustainability is an important theme within the building industry, and we are fully aware of our responsibility as a significant player within an industry where production of cement is regarded as one of the largest CO2 emitters. As a realistic replacement to concrete is unlikely to show up within the next many decades, all links in the value chain involving cement must do an effort.

Authorities all over the world will make requirements to the CO2 emission – also from cement and the rest of the building industry – and at SKAKO we will be at the leading edge and be able to supply the solutions that our customers need. Both to meet the authorities’ requirements and to meet requirements from customers and investors who also request more green solutions.

For this reason, SKAKO’s environmental contribution is divided into two parts: We want continuously to measure and monitor our own CO2 emission on central and environmentally damaging areas and at the same time – as the most essential contribution to the environment – develop products and solutions enabling our customers to produce in a more environmentally friendly way. This is the essence of our most significant climate ambition so far – to make the world’s concrete production plants more green: Green Plant Vision

Big enough to cope ...

When we contribute to reducing the need for cement without compromising the strength or quality of the concrete, we will make the biggest difference. Not only to our customers – but also to the entire world. We know that our mixers will not be doing the job on their own – but on the other hand we take care that the mixers never become an obstacle on the road to reduce the quantity of cement in the concrete.
At the same time, some of the new and more sustainable kinds of concrete require a completely different mixing technique in relation to what we have seen so far – and we can deliver this. If the industry manages to reduce the CO2 emission from cement by only 1%, this will correspond to approx. three times the total CO2 emission from Denmark. Seen in a global perspective, this has undreamt potentials for the world’s CO2 emission for the part related to the cement production. And if we at SKAKO can contribute with only 0.1%, then it will be worth for us to pursue and be proud of. Despite our modest size – we are big enough to contribute significantly.

… Small enough to care

In relation to the value chain in which our products are included, SKAKO’s total footprint is very small. Nevertheless, we carry through a number of initiatives to make ourselves more sustainable in our everyday life such as:

  • Reduced consumption of power and water in our offices and our production
  • Continuous replacement to electric cars
  • Paperless production
  • Establishment of current workshops in “sustainability culture group’
  • Transport optimization and gathering of supplies with more partial components

Two of the focus areas in our sustainability strategy point at improving our own effort: One focus area is about optimizing our own production and another focus area is about creating a work culture where it becomes usual practice to think sustainability in everything we do.

Sustainability has now been verbalized as a natural part of our everyday life, and we have established sustainability groups resulting in thoughts with our employees, and generally we focus on optimizing and improving where potentials are identified.
SKAKO’s actual targets for our own environmental impact are listed below:

Products

We aim at the lowest CO2 impacting production of the industry: 70% CO2 reduction before 2030 (index 1990)

Cement

We want to produce concrete with the lowest possible cement content – without compromising with the strength in the concrete: 10% cement reduction before 2025 (index 2010)

Water

We will minimize the water consumption in concrete mixing: Reuse of water = 100% before 2025

Circular

Our products must be reusable: Reuse > 95% before 2030

Our contribution

Through the cooperation with our customers, we develop solutions that will make their production more sustainable without risking their general ability to do business.

Among our services and solutions are e.g.:

  • We supply mixers, equipment and control systems that both save energy and accelerate the use of UHPC and other strong concrete types requiring less cement
  • We provide equipment enabling our customers to reuse 100% of their wastewater in the mixing process
  • We take care that our mixers and other equipment can be reused
  • We help planning the customers’ plants and look at them from all angles to make them match the consumption situation. Whether it would be most appropriate to have one large plant or several minor plants geographically spread to reduce transportation
  • We help ensuring that our mixers and other equipment are ergonomically correctly designed to reduce personal load and advance the working environment

We commit ourselves in close partnerships

We put our worldwide customers’ needs first and bring our service, customer-adapted solutions and engineering expertise from offices in Faaborg, Strasbourg and San Sebastian

We are big enough to cope – and small enough to care
