ASSA ABLOY Supports Sustainable Building with Efficiency, Transparency and Consultancy
ASSA ABLOY’s commitment to protecting the planet – along with the people and places where security matters most – is a cornerstone value of the organization and is anchored by three core competencies: efficiency, transparency and consultancy.
Those three tenets will be on full display in the ASSA ABLOY booth (#1214) at Greenbuild 2017, as well as a continued commitment to making products, processes and the built environment more sustainable.
ASSA ABLOY helps buildings reduce energy consumption through multiple solutions. These include energy efficient products such as optimized, high performance openings that reduce thermal and air leakage and electronic access control components that use drastically less power versus traditional methods.
“Now more than ever, project teams strive to design new or retrofit existing buildings as progressive environments that are both healthy and efficient,” said Amy Vigneux, director of Sustainable Building Solutions at ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions. “We support these demands through deliberate product design that provides noticeable and measurable improvements in efficiency and occupant health in buildings.”

ASSA ABLOY actively pursues transparency documents for many products, ensuring that builders, designers, specifiers, architects and others are confident in their ability to provide products that consider the product’s entire life cycle impact. To this goal, ASSA ABLOY offers:
- Over 100 products with EPDs – Environmental Product Declarations includes a product’s life cycle assessment and serves as a way to quantify the product’s environmental impact.
- Over 20 products with HPDs – Health Product Declarations reports the content of a product along with its associated health and other related information.
- Over 20 products with Declare labels – Declare labels serve as a way to disclose product ingredients, specifically those used for Living Building Challenge projects.
“A commitment to transparency in our value chain, manufacturing, and product ingredients fulfills the needs of an educated and demanding industry that is continuing to push commercial and institutional construction in a positive direction,” Vigneux said.
