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.
We plan our deliveries, co-operate and use suppliers of transports with stated environmental policies.
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.
We sort and recycle what is possible and always take care of and handle hazardous waste.
We make sure that no paint residue ends up in the drain.
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.
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.
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.
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.
World-leading system for determining the environmental impact of products in buildings. We provide the necessary documentation for our customers' BREEAM certification.
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.
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.
