Bostik's Green Commitment
INNOVATIVE NEW PRODUCTS TO PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT
Bostik is committed to offering innovative product solutions which contribute to sustainable development in construction. This is achieved through continuously developing greener products and packaging. Bostik anticipates and exceeds the needs of its customers while minimising environmental impacts.
PROMOTING PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP
Right from the research stage, Bostik integrates health, safety and environmental criteria into each new product development. As a signatory to the National Packaging Covenant, Bostik is firmly committed to reducing the environmental impact of packaging. Further down the line, Bostik applies the same degree of rigour to labeling, preparation of safety documents (safety data sheets). This ensures optimum conditions for the storage, shipment and use of its products. Our relationship with our customers includes technical assistance aimed at optimising the use of our products for the greater protection of people and the environment.
REDUCED IMPACT OF COMPANY ACTIVITIES ON THE ENVIRONMENT
All Bostik production sites monitor the characteristics of emissions and waste rigorously and systematically. Performance indicators provide a regular assessment of the environmental performance. Action plans are continuously updated and implemented to reduce the impact on the environment.
PROMOTING ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
Systems are in place to manage Bostik’s ISO 9001 safety and quality performance systems are based on a continuous improvement process.
The Green Building Council of Australia developed the Green Star environmental rating system for building and construction. A growing number of projects are adopting these green building processes to promote a healthier environment, minimise global impacts and improve the satisfaction and living environments of the population. Builders, remodelers, engineers, product manufactures, architects and consumers alike are using these guidelines to create new approaches to construction and remodeling projects that will benefit today and the world tomorrow.
Bostik is committed to protecting the world we live in. With the introduction of Ultra-Set™ Singlestep2™, comes an innovation to reuse raw rubber in the form of our patent protected Thickness Control™ spacer technology. Providing superior sound dampening qualities and reducing installation time, Ultra-Set™ SingleStep2™ becomes a leader in environmental stewardship.
