Sustainability is a Natural Part of What We Do
ASSA ABLOY is committed to providing products and services that are environmentally sound throughout the entire production process and the product lifecycle. Our unconditional aim is to make sustainability a central part of our business philosophy and culture, but even more importantly is the job of integrating sustainability into our business strategy.
ASSA ABLOY group brands are committed to implementing manufacturing processes that advance this cause. We provide:
- Lower operating costs - many of our products far exceed ANSI/BHMA standards, translating to longer product life and easier maintenance (plus less waste in landfills).
- Energy conservation - a clear result of our energy-efficient doors and frames.
- Healthier and safer for occupants - comes from our using non-hazardous materials and providing effective life-safety solutions.
- The environmental sustainability coordinators at Group and divisional levels check that necessary policies, programs and tools regarding environmental issues exist and are implemented, while the HR function at the Group and divisional level oversees social and ethical issues.
Examples of how ASSA ABLOY works with sustainability throughout the value chain; at customers', in our factories, in the community and so on.
