Sustainability

For us at Winab, it is an obvious matter to produce with sustainability as the main key word. In practice, this means high efficiency in the use of energy and natural resources, well-thought-out systems for the reuse of materials and production methods that minimize pollution.
 

Climate policy

Winab's overall environmental goal is to deliver high quality products with the least possible environmental impact.

The climate work is carried out based on five focus areas. 

  • Transports
    We plan our deliveries, co-operate and use suppliers of transports with stated environmental policies.
  • Energy
    We grind and burn surplus material in an advanced plant with flue gas purification. The energy from burning is used to heat the factory premises.
  • Waste
    We sort and recycle what is possible and always take care of and handle hazardous waste.
  • Emissions
    We make sure that no paint residue ends up in the drain.
  • Products
    We primarily choose suppliers with documented environmental work who can offer products with low environmental impact with, for example, the Nordic Ecolabel or FSC label.
     

Heating of the factory by combustible waste

We collect and utilise combustible surplus material from production. The production waste is burned in our own boiler and is used to heat our premises and reduce costs for waste transport.

Environmental assessments

As a supplier, we contribute to sustainable solutions by being transparent with our own environmental work but also with facts about the properties of our products. Relevant environmental information is therefore reported in environmental assessment systems that our customers can easily access.

Construction Product Assessment BVD


Makes comprehensive assessments of construction products to promote development towards a non-toxic and good built environment and for responsible supply levels. Winab's products are environmentally assessed in the Building Product Assessment.

Sunda Hus
Evaluates products and provides property owners with a basis for conscious decisions that promote the environment and human health. Winab's wall solutions are recognised at Sunda Hus.

BREEAM
World-leading system for determining the environmental impact of products in buildings. We provide the necessary documentation for our customers' BREEAM certification. 

LEED
America’s climate certification for buildings. The certification is adapted to the Swedish market, and a number of construction projects where Winab's folding walls have been installed are certified according to LEED.

In addition to what has been mentioned, there are a number of alternative options for certifying buildings. Environmental Building, EU Green Building and CEEQUAL are some examples. We help customers who are striving for an environmental certificate with the product documentation that the project requires.

Climate certification

Winab has been certified according to ISO 14001 - an international standard for environmental management - since 2008.

The certification verifies that we as a company set relevant goals for our environmental impact and meet all of the requirements set by the standard.
