Operating with care

We are continuously working to reduce the environmental impact of our operations.

A commitment to better

Ecophon has made a commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050. To get there, we are doing everything we can to optimise our production and logistic processes, and gradually reduce our environmental footprint.

100% green power

Ecophon production sites and all other Saint-Gobain businesses in the Nordics have been powered by renewable electricity with Guarantee of Origin since 2018. This electricity is CO2 neutral according to scope 2 of the GHG protocol, and has already saved an estimated 40,000 tons of CO2 from Saint-Gobain Group operations in the region.

Operating on the planet’s terms

All our production sites follow the World Class Manufacturing Programme (WCM) and use its methods and techniques. The goal is to “get it right the first time” consistently, which reduces and eliminates waste and losses in our production process.

Low impact delivery

We work closely with our logistic partners to set up best practices and minimise the environmental impact of the delivery of our products from our factories to our customers. Our freight companies are selected based on their ISO 14001 certification, the European emission standards of their fleet (EURO 5 or higher) and their consumption of bio-fuel.

 

All our production sites are certified for ISO 14001 – Environmental management. You can find the certificates in our download centre.
