Environment

The impact that our operations have on the environment is of great importance to TR Fastenings, with the primary goal of the Group’s Environmental Policy being to comply with all relevant legislation in all areas in which we operate. 

This includes compliance with the ‘Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals’ (REACh) legislation and the ‘Restriction of Hazardous Substances’ (RoHS) legislation for which we have our own in-house testing facility.
