Sustainable Products and Services
Reducing their total cost of ownership (TCO) is a key challenge for industries. At ERIKS, our customers have an experienced partner that can make their business work better and more efficiently. The added value we offer customers includes documented savings potential throughout the entire process chain. Our customized products help companies to optimize their cost of operation and produce more sustainably and efficiently, allowing faster time to market.
We see a great opportunity to use our products and services to create the most innovative, highest-quality and most productive industry possible. Our extensive product and process knowledge allows us to co-engineer with our customers in original equipment manufacturing (OEM) and improve their products' performance.
Perhaps the greatest positive environmental impact our products and services have is the prevention of harm through their use. Predominantly, their greatest negative impact is the energy they use.
With this in mind, we are constantly working to develop products that are energy efficient, reduce pollution and are sustainable. We want to help our customers make significant savings in environment costs, predominantly energy and water disposal costs.
To understand the savings we deliver to customers, we need to measure them. We have developed a global online system that captures and presents clear and consistent environmental data. The new tool has been developed as part of our Customer Relationship Management system, OneCRM. The cost savings function has now been launched in Belgium and the Netherlands and will be rolled out to other countries when IT systems are upgraded.
In 2019, we achieved an additional €1,343,665 in environmental savings for our customers taking our total to €10.7 million since we began monitoring in 2016.
