Our core values
As a company we believe that it is important to be supported by some basic values. The core values that we want our company and our products, systems and services to be characterized by are:
- Natural – We believe that it is important to act in harmony with nature. To work with natural solutions increases the likelihood that the solutions will be sustainable.
- Sustainable – Everything we do must be sustainable. We humans often “solve” our problems in a way that creates new problems. And so we try to solve this new problem, etc. Within ACT, we believe that we must focus on the causes of the problems as far as possible, rather than treating the symptoms. This is the only way to achieve the right conditions for long-term sustainability in harmony with the natural ecosystems.
- Transparent – We want to be open and clear about what we do and what we stand for. It should be easy to be both a customer and a supplier to ACT and we want to avoid the emergence of any negative surprises.
Behind Alnarp Cleanwater Technology stand about 15 shareholders, mostly private persons, who have different types of competence; environmental specialists, industry people, marketers, consultants, etc: A combination of individuals with the common goal of offering the market a more intelligent way to purify wastewater, both in Sweden and internationally.
