Environment

Our factories have always had nature on their doorstep. Therefore it is natural for us to preserve and protect our environment. We continuously strive to find the most environmentally friendly solutions and economical use of resources in the manufacturing of our products. By caring for our environment we work to minimize the environmental impact of all our activities and products.

Our machines are among the most water and energy efficient on the market. In 2007 we were proud to introduce the world’s first Swan labelled dishwasher in our range, side by side with our Swan labelled washing machine (also the world’s only one – so far). The Swan label is the most well known Nordic Ecolabel for health and environmentally friendly products, and a Swan label certifies that the certified products meet very strict and tough demands on environment and quality. In the US our machines are recommended by Energy Star, an organization that helps consumers choose energy-efficient, good value and environmentally friendly products.

The ASKO factories also have environmental certification in accordance with ISO 14001 which means that everything is done in as environmentally friendly a way as possible.

An example of this is that all components in our appliances that weigh more than 50 grams are labelled for recycling.
