We are aware of the importance of reducing the electricity consumption, as it adds to the emission of CO². We are also aware of the fact that clean water is a scarce resource. Therefore, the AVK Group has outlined a number of very strict objectives for our production companies as far as electricity and water consumption are concerned. Consequently, all of our companies put high efforts in reducing the consumption, wherever they can and even get a direct saving as a side benefit.
Every AVK employee is motivated to identify areas of improvement in the way we do business to the benefit of the environment. We do not only focus on activities and processes in our manufacturing companies, but also on the behaviour and business model of our suppliers
The high design quality of AVK products helps to minimise the effects of AVK products on the environment. AVK Products are built with key considerations: ease of installation; reliability; longevity and low maintenance. Therefore, AVK Products need to be replaced less often than similar products. This results in less energy intensive digging processes, preventing environmental effects both globally (see climate change section) and locally (dust, noise, etc).
AVK Saudi is committed to conducting its business operations in as environmentally responsible manner and recognises the need to continually improve its operations in order to reduce the effect on the environment.
Through the new AVK 24/7 emergency call out service our engineers will reduce the amount of water or waste water at the point of a leak using AVK repair clamps. This in turn will reduce the energy involved in the transfer of water. In addition, emissions will be avoided through minimising disruption to traffic.
