ROTO also closely monitors the national move towards phasing out the use of natural gas. This is an important consideration in the energy-intensive galvanising process. Every measure to save energy is important and it may be reflected directly in a reduction of the cost price. ROTO has put innovation higher on the agenda and is investigating, among other things, the option of using robots effectively. The production process is now inconceivable without robots: their use for repetitive and/or demanding physical work can relieve the burden on our colleagues. The use of tools to further reduce that burden contributes to the objective of sustainable employment.

ROTO is also continuing its efforts to preserve the environment in terms of working without paper. The digital newsletters and ROTOtaal, and the digital processing of invoices (incoming and outgoing) will continue unabated. On the forklift trucks, tablets are used to guide work digitally and the electronic waybill is used in order to work without paper as much as possible.

In 2018 ROTO teamed up with the Opkikker Foundation to contribute to a Super Opkikker Day dedicated to giving a boost to children with chronic illnesses and their families. ROTO has also made donations to various institutions on the basis of their passionate social commitment. ROTO also supported a number of more local initiatives, for example by participating in the NLdoet campaign.
