Since fiscal year 1997/1998, IRON Pump A/S has prepared and delivered green accounts. A green account is a report, which in facts render visible the yearly consumption of raw materials and energy, and emissions and the waste that derive from production and the company's daily operations. The green account is an excellent work tool, which quickly provides an overview of the materials and the energy applied in manufacturing and assembling pumps, and contemporarily shows, which steps have been followed and/or initiated to become even better. The rules for reporting of the green accounts have been changed in October 2015, In the future only PRTR data must be reported. PRTR data are already included as a part of the green accounts.

A smaller pump means less use of material and hence, fewer resources. Find our ECO pumps here .
