What is sustainable development?
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” World Commission on Environment and Development, Our Common Future (1987)
For more than 30 years our company managed to come up with economical and technical solutions in order to reduce steel consumption of our different customers’ projects. Today we are still developing this saving policy by adapting and optimizing, as long as it is possible, each reinforcement project.
SAS addicted to Quality Health Safety and Environment policy
Thanks to this process and the technical adaptations carried out by SAS, more than 40 000 tonnes of steel has been saved during the last 25 years.
In accordance with production’s tools, the material and the equipment have been design in order to minimise reinforcement handling, the main goal is being to save energetic costs due to useless displacement and lifting. In general each tonne of rebar needs around a dozen of displacement during the fabrication process. SAS manage to reduce this number down to only 4 handling, which allows significant saves of energy.
The idea of “sustainable development” also takes place in our QHSE policy that we have been developing during the last past years. It is vital to reduce the different impacts bound to our company activities on the environment; this is based on this statement that we developed our QHSE policy.
Sustainable development by SAS for wind farm:
- A mass production of rebars in record time
- A perfect control of the just in time production
- A professional assembly on a site in a record time
Eventually, our electrical supply is 100% powered by certified green energy.
