For the second year in a row, the BIRN Group, which KOCKUMS MASKIN are a part of, are publishing a sustainability report for the entire BIRN Group. The sustainability report for 2023 is structured according to the areas Environment (E), Social (S) and Governance (G) to provide the best overall picture of where we stand as a company and a group in relation to climate, environmental, social and governance initiatives, all of which must support the upcoming EU sustainability reporting requirements.

Increasing demands and expectations for sustainability
KOCKUMS MASKIN and the BIRN Group will be subject to the EU sustainability reporting requirements from 2026, but we are already seeing increasing demands and expectations for sustainability from our customers. That is why we spent part of 2023 collecting data and preparing EPDs for the cast iron elements used in our customers' finished products.

- Data has been the focal point of the 2023 report, enabling us to make the best and most effective decisions when it comes to sustainability. We are constantly looking for opportunities to optimize the way we use energy in our companies, says Claus Beier, Group CEO of BIRN Group.

In 2023, we established a new system to reduce faults and improve our processes. This has made it possible for us to recycle all iron shavings from our machining processes and recycle cutting oil from machines.

- Our new process system has helped us cut our oil consumption in half. This is a good example of how we at KOCKUMS MASKIN are constantly working to improve our energy and resource consumption for the benefit of our customers, the environment, and the climate, says our Managing Director, Johan Brengesjö.

Well-being and job satisfaction are high priorities
Happy and satisfied employees are crucial for KOCKUMS MASKIN to run a successful business.

We therefore maintain and develop our strong focus on well-being and job satisfaction for all our employees, including through our annual employee satisfaction survey.

 - At KOCKUMS MASKIN, employee satisfaction and productivity go hand in hand. That is why we want to create a working environment, where our employees can thrive and be happy, concludes Johan Brengesjö.
