Recycled Aluminium in Energyline Linear
Did you know that our newly developed Energyline Linear is made with recycled aluminium right here in New Zealand?
Energyline has a strong commitment to the environment and our supplier McKechnie has the same philosophy (and because of this) their initiatives towards sustainable practice in their manufacturing processes have been awarded the Enviro-Mark® Diamond level certification (now known as Toitū Enviromark Diamond). They have received the AS/NZS ISO 14001 international certification for their environmental management systems.
Our collaboration with McKechnie is through the component of our extruded aluminium in Energyline Linear, made from high recycled content, that carries the Toitū Carbonreduce certification.
What is Toitū carbonreduce certification?
Toitū carbonreduce product certification is proof that goods and services are positively contributing to our environment through measuring and managing their carbon footprint. To achieve Toitū carbonreduce product certification, the producer measures the full lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for their product or service, required under the international standard for product carbon footprints, PAS 2050. The footprint includes emissions from sourcing raw materials, manufacturing, distributing and using the product, and disposing of any waste. The emissions are measured annually, and the inventory is independently verified to ensure it is accurate and complete. The organisation must develop plans to continually manage and reduce the product or service’s emissions. The product must reduce emissions on a six-year cycle.
