Word of Environmental Claim. The validity of the products of the Ecofriendly line for CAM and LEED is attested by the Self-declared Environmental Product Claims that the Company is authorized to release to the customer thanks to the international certification UNI EN ISO 14021, obtained in November 2020. Through this kind of document, General Membrane can self-certify the percentage of recycled material in its products. In particular a pre-supply environmental statement and a post-supply environmental statement will be provided, in order to support the customer with precise data about the amount of recycled material in the finished product.
Recycle, reuse, reduce. Recycling of materials is now a strategic resource for environmental protection: the use of raw materials in industrial processes is reduced and compensated for by waste and scrap from the first production cycle which are recycled, i.e. put back into production, becoming secondary raw materials and thus reducing the environmental impact (fewer virgin resources used and fewer products thrown away for disposal).
What, once used, was considered unusable, now acquires new value as a second raw material that can be employed in new, more sustainable production processes. General Membrane is proud to give its contribution for a greener world.
