Halving non-utilised window waste

Today, 97% of waste from our production processes is recycled or used as an energy source for heat generation. To strengthen our waste reduction efforts up to now (‘waste vision zero’), we want to reduce non-utilised waste by 50% per produced window.

Zero waste - recycling symbol

For many years, we have been working with the reduction of raw material waste by optimising production processes and supplied materials. For example, we have optimised  wood or aluminium cutting processes, where machinery modifications and changes in  supplied material specifications have generated less waste. We are also working with our suppliers to optimise the packaging of delivered products and materials.
