Camfil Farr has become the first air filtration company in the world to publish a corporate Sustainability Report. The recently released report, describing the company's initial sustainability actions, goals and performance indicators, is now available for downloading at http://www.camfilfarr.com in an easy-to-read and environmentally friendly online version.
The report is being published on a voluntary basis to describe the company's efforts to become a truly sustainable enterprise. In Camfil Farr's view, sustainability is vital for continuing growth as well as essential for understanding the social and environmental concerns of customers, employees and other stakeholders.
Climate change and a growing awareness about conserving resources in society are also highlighting the need for responsible actions and solutions from the air filtration industry. Delivering high indoor air quality, reducing the energy consumption of air handling systems with better filters, and continuing a cradle-to-grave approach to product management, will all play a role in this process.
Camfil Farr has been greening its operations, as well as those of customers, for close to half a century. By establishing its new sustainability code over a long-term horizon, and implementing a continuous sustainability programme, Camfil Farr is taking yet another step to become a global business that is socially responsible as well as environmentally friendly. As described in the report, the company is setting up a consistent approach to communicating sustainability through five main directions: energy efficiency, indoor air quality, green products, the supply chain, and risk assessment.
