Vision and focus
How do we deal with our clients, staff and the environment?
The continuity of Geelhoed Metaalhandel depends on its surroundings, relations, staff and executive board. Healthy development of the company will ensure that the needs of the stakeholders are met in the future as well. In order to do so, we have adopted the Metaal Recycling Federatie (Metal Recycling Federation; MRF) codes of conduct. Please find the codes of conduct on the MRF website. Geelhoed’s four main intentions and objectives are:
- Monitoring and improving services
- Looking after the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff
- Complying with legal prescriptions and caring for the environment
- Active staff participation in organisation improvement
Both executive board and staff members are working hard to realise these objectives.
MRF membership (and MRF certification)
In May 2019, the audit results for MRF certification were again positive.
Geelhoed Metaalhandel again passed the audit for MRF certification, conducted by SGS (the certifying authority), successfully in May 2019. The audit report concluded: “No shortcomings were found. The action plan from RI&E was adequately addressed.” The most recent MRF certification sticker is located on the MRF shield on the wall near the company building entrance.
Geelhoed Metaalhandel BV is a member of the Metal Recycling Federation (MRF). Metal recycling is a thriving sector that prevents exhaustion of scarce raw materials, waste production, unnecessary energy consumption and CO2 emissions. It is a sustainable sector. The MRF strives to further professionalise the industry and has therefore introduced compulsory certification, the MRF certification, in 2008. All MRF members, including Geelhoed Metaalhandel, have to pass the certification audit. Several issues will be addressed during the audit: environmental licenses, rules of conduct, administrative organisation, purchasing procedures and complaint handling. Soil protection, air pollution, energy saving, noise and safety regulations, internal transportation, machines and equipment, fire extinguishing equipment and emergency routes are also addressed.
