Environment & sustainability at Element Six
Element Six integrates sustainable development with its decision-making process.
Element Six believes in caring for the environment. We are committed to the continual improvement of our environmental performance. We facilitate and encourage the responsible design, use, re-use, recycling and disposal of our products.
We continue to look for ways to maintain our sustainability, from using innovative electro-chemical processes to recover product from our high pressure processes to reducing our energy usage. As an example of our continued commitment beyond ISO 14001 compliance, we have introduced the European Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) at a key manufacturing site to drive continual resource and energy efficiency, improved stakeholder engagement and environmental risk and opportunity management.
Perhaps our greatest contribution to global sustainability lies in the extreme performance of our products themselves.
Our products are used in a wide variety of industries and applications across the world. Our abrasive materials offer tool makers outstanding energy efficiencies on a scale of magnitude, as well as result in better utilisation of raw materials. Our single crystal synthetic diamond solutions are being used to develop new sustainability technologies, including the creation of chemical-free industrial wastewater treatment facilities, and the development of chemical reaction technology to break down pollutants that can only be incinerated today.
Element Six integrates sustainable development with its corporate decision-making process, and for more information on our commitment to sustainability, please see our environmental policy.
