SUSTAINABLE. New Wave Group has two main strategies to decrease our environmental impact and to cut our emission of greenhouse gases. First of all, we must influence the transportation companies that we are working with. Our membership in “Clean Shipping Index” aims to impact the shipping companies to use cleaner vessels by ranking the most high-performing ships. The Group works with some of the largest transportation com- panies on the market, all of which have environmental programs in place for their operations. Secondly, we always strive to improve our internal logistics and work methods. Within our group of com- panies, we club together as much as possible of our shipments and transportations. In addition to protect- ing the environment, sustainable solutions can also contribute to the streamlining of our operations.

We have the possibility to contribute and make a difference through our global operations. ProJob is a part of New Wave Group.

It is important to New Wave Group that our products are safe and free from restricted chemicals.

This supports our active work to reduce and replace chemicals in line with best available technique. All our suppliers must follow the requirements in our Restricted Substance List. The list has been designed in accordance with legislations such as REACH, but also taking into account industry recommendations and standards. As a result, our requirements are often stricter than the applicable legislation. Having both internal and external audits is a quality assurance to us. We strive for constant improvements and continuous development. New Wave Group is a signatory member of the pioneer- ing Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh.
