REACH and RoHS statements
REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. REACH is a Regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals. The REACH Regulation applies in all Member States without needing to be transposed by national rules and thus acts as common legislation throughout the EU.
RoHS stands for Restriction of [the use of] Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The RoHS Directive aims to reduce risks to human health and the environment by replacing and limiting specific hazardous chemical substances in found electrical and electronic products. The Directive also has the objective of improving the design of electronic products with environmentally safe profitable and sustainable recycling in mind.

Triple A Credit Rating
Bisnode’s credit rating model is an industry leader and has been in existence since 1989. The model is based on a well-proven statistical method with over 2,400 decision-making rules and is used as a common rating standard for all Nordic countries. The credit rating is based on a combination of four areas: ability to pay, finances, age/business segment, and owner/management. Bisnode’s credit rating serves as both an acknowledgement of mark and a proof that ESBE is a secure and fiscally responsible creditworthy trading partner. Only three percent of all limited liability companies in the Nordic countries hold this rating.
