Sateba Norway AS gives priority to environmental considerations relating to production and will
continue to strengthen these efforts. The company is certified under ISO 14001, confirming that
Sateba Norway AS is taking active steps to reduce the environmental impact of its products and services.
Sateba Norway AS has state-of-the-art knowledge about the life cycle and carbon footprint of its products.
The company produces its own concrete, and can itself select the amount of cement to be used (cement represents the largest environmental challenge in concrete). Furthermore, Sateba Norway AS is located in an area with an abundance of the raw materials the company needs in its production, facilitating local access to these materials.
It takes energy to produce concrete. The company is looking into measures to reduce energy consumption without compromising the quality of its concrete. Concrete production also yields a high volume of waste products. Sateba Norway AS has achieved a 96 per cent recycling rate for waste products, and continues to work towards its target of a full 100 per cent.
After the concrete is moulded and hardened, it has no emission of greenhouse gases.
