Environmental information to our suppliers

The Supplier's Environmental Plan

For some contracts FMV requires that the supplier must establish an Environmental Plan describing how environmental measures are taken in the course of a project.

The Environmental Plan describes how the environmental work or the environmental management will be applied in the supplier's commitment to FMV, and what measures are to be taken to ensure and confirm that legal requirements, internal requirements and FMV's environmental requirements are met.
FMV provides our suppliers with a support document that describes how an Environmental Plan can be made.

Recycling Manual

For some contracts FMV requires that the supplier produce a Recycling Manual for the system in question. The aim of this Recycling Manual is to provide all the information that is needed to dispose of the system in a way that minimizes the effect on people's health and the surrounding environment.

The Recycling Manual should provide information about substances, components and materials in the system, special regulations or legislation that could affect the recycling of the system, help to maximise the reuse, and recycling of the system and its components as for dismantling the system.

FMV requires that the supplier produce the Recycling Manual according to this document:

Environmental legislation

In the implementation of projects and the development of products on behalf of FMV, it is important to follow the environmental legislation such as the Swedish Environmental Code and the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use (EC) 1907/2006 (REACH).

Information about current environmental legislation can be found under external links, to the right on this page.

Requirements on chemical substances

The defence sector´s criteria document- Chemical Substances, Chemical Product and Articles

The defence sector's criteria document is a tool for FMV as well as the other authorities within the defence sector to establish human health and environment requirements on procurement and purchasing of chemical products and articles, and also on applicable parts of services. By establishing such requirements we will contribute to reducing effects on the environment and humans. This is achieved by, among other things, restricting which chemical substances that may be used in activities, and the chemical products used in production and maintenance.

As far as possible, all chemical products and articles (materiel) supplied to the authorities of the Swedish defence sector shall be free from substances that are very toxic, carcinogenic, affect genetic material, affect reproduction, are allergenic, are hazardous to the environment, or affect the climate and/or the ozone layer.

Environmental modules

FMV is contributing in the strive towards a sustainable society that our children and grandchildren can live in and enjoy. That means we should try to influence the environment as little as possible. FMV do it by putting demands on our suppliers to have a systematic environmental work and that the materials they deliver are as environmentally adapted as possible.

To help our project managers to use appropriate environmental requirements when procuring goods and services, we have developed a set of modules with such requirements. These environmental modules are suggestions on environmental requirements and suggestions on how to demonstrate compliance with the requirements. Below you can see the modules available today, but more modules are under development.

For you as a supplier: The requirements in the modules have been secured both from a technical and legal viewpoint, but we are grateful for comments to further improve the quality of the tool. We therefore welcome you to contact FMV's environmental group, our address can be found in the red box on the top right of this page.
