Environmental Responsibility

LAMATEK™ is dedicated to minimizing the environmental impact of the products we offer. Through continuous process improvement, we aim to reduce waste generation, conserve natural resources, and lower our greenhouse gas emissions as we grow and learn more about sustainability. Our key environmental initiatives include:

Resource Efficiency

We optimize our use of energy, water, and raw materials by implementing efficient technologies on site. We regularly evaluate and upgrade our warehouse equipment to ensure optimal performance while minimizing waste.

Sustainable Product Development

We design, manufacture, and promote products that meet the highest standards of quality and safety. We strive to reduce the environmental impact of our products throughout their lifecycle, from raw material sourcing to end-of-life disposal/recycling.

Waste Reduction

We actively seek ways to minimize waste generation, increase recycling rates, and promote responsible waste management practices. We collaborate with suppliers and partners to find innovative solutions for reducing pollutive packaging materials and we are currently exploring eco-friendly alternatives to this issue. 

Environmentally Friendly Materials

Natural Cork
Natural Cork

Natural Cork

Cork is a renewable, sustainable material as it comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. Naturally impermeable, buoyant, elastic and fire retardant. Typically used as gasket for oil and fuel pumps as well as electrical gear. Popular choice due to high compressibility, flexibility, plus oil and solvent resistance.
Silicone
Silicone

Silicone

Silicone is more environmentally friendly than plastic. Made from silica, which is derived from sand, and manufacturing does not involve mining for crude oil. Offers flexibility, weather resistance & electrical insulating properties. Wide variety of applications including pharmaceutical & food processing.
Wool Felt
Wool Felt

Wool Felt

Wool Felt is a natural product. The processing of wool requires very little environmental impact compared to other natural or man-made fibers. Felt has a life cycle that is substantially longer than other upholstery material.
Cellulose Sponge
Cellulose Sponge

Cellulose Sponge

Cellulose Sponge is made from wood fibers. Although manufactured, they’re much more eco-friendly than plastic sponges since they go through a less toxic manufacturing process and degrade in landfills (compostable).
Natural Rubber
Natural Rubber

Natural Rubber

Natural Rubber is a popular choice for a reason — it's a good all-around, general-purpose gasket material. Incredibly water resistant and compatible with metal surfaces, natural rubber is great for water pumps and pipes and offers shock and vibration resistance.

Social Responsibility

We understand the importance of being a responsible corporate citizen and strive to contribute positively to the communities in which we operate. Our social responsibility initiatives encompass the three main areas:

Employee Well-being

We prioritize the health, safety, and well-being of our employees. We maintain a safe working environment, provide ongoing training and development opportunities and promote work-life balance. We foster a culture of diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunities in everything we do

Supplier Accountability

We work closely with our suppliers to ensure they share our commitment to sustainability. All suppliers are screened for best sourcing practices, fair labor conditions, and adherence to ethical standards throughout the supply chain.

Community Engagement

We actively engage with local communities to understand their needs and concerns. Through partnerships, volunteering, and philanthropic initiatives, we aim to make a positive difference by supporting educational programs, environmental conservation efforts, and social welfare initiatives.

Who Are Our Partners?

As we move forward in this world, we recognize that we still have much to learn and put into motion to increase our efforts. Sustainability is deeply embedded in our corporate values and will continue to guide our decision-making processes from this point onward. By embracing sustainability as a fundamental principle of what we do, LAMATEK aims to contribute to a better, more resilient future for all.
