Our major aim is to reduce CO2 emissions by maximizing the use of renewables and minimize the waste of energy.
There is an increasing awareness of the benefits of renewable heating and cooling, decarbonizing our energy demand. Besides that, renewable resources are often locally available, which helps to reduce the dependency on external suppliers. We facilitate the use of renewables like biomass, solar thermal energy, sea water cooling and rest heat and use it in our operations wherever possible.
We are continuously improving the energy performance of our systems and solutions.
In-house programs for energy saving practices and operational excellence have resulted in higher energy efficiency in our own organisation.
The growing scarcity of resources is one of the major challenges in the world currently. We believe a solution can be found in the circular economy.
Our long term ambition to reclaim all materials and thus closing the loop requires a constant awareness and drive for:
In some areas in the world, the scarcity and quality of water, either for drinking and/or sanitation purposes directly influences the human health. Our contribution to diminish this worldwide problem lies in delivering leakage-free systems for drinking water and/or sanitation purposes and reducing and reusing water in our production facilities.
Taking care of our ecosystems, spanning generations, drives us to work together in symbiotic harmony. We aim for maximum benefit for all our stakeholders.
As an employer we aim to be a source of energy for passionate employees empowering them to achieve and surpass their potential. We offer them the opportunity to grow, develop and play on their own strengths while operating worldwide in a safe, responsible and sustainable manner.
There are only few places in the world where the temperature is comfortable both day and night throughout the whole year. We have developed maintenance free and easy to install systems, that connect the demand for cooling & heating with its supply, while lowering energy costs and contributing to green buildings.
We can only be successful in our mission by working together with like-minded partners throughout the complete value chain. In co-creation with installers, distributors suppliers and many more, we can reduce the impact on the climate and create a circular economy.
Thermaflex North-West Europe and Central Europe are Certified B Corporations. B Corp is to business what Fair Trade is to coffee. Starting in 2006, the B Corp movement boards for-profit companies to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, acountability, and transparency. The B corp vision entails that one day all companies compete not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world, leading to more shared and durable prosperity for society as a whole.
The ‘B Corp Best for the Environment’ list honors businesses that earned an environmental score in the top 10% of more than 1,200 Certified B Corporations from over 120 industries on the B Impact Assessment, a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of a company's impact on its workers, community, and the environment. Honorees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses around the globe.
Thermaflex ‘s commitment to minimize the environmental impact is supported by the ISO 14001 environmental management systems. This certification shows our stakeholders Thermaflex complies with this standard.
Our ultimate goal is the implementation of integrated ISO 9001 and 14001 quality and environmental management systems certification throughout our worldwide organization.
Our largest factories, located in Netherlands and Poland, are certified according to ISO 14001 environmental management systems.
Our aim is a better world for next generations. Thermaflex provides transparency in all aspects of sustainability; whether it concerns our production, choice of materials or product features throughout their whole lifecycle. This becomes clear in our Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), which secure an ideal fit for LEED and BREEAM projects.
EPDs are a foremost international standard to analyse and declare the environmental performance of products. As an independently verified and registered document that tells a transparent and comparable life-cycle story about the environmental impact of products, it allows our customers to make well-informed choices based on an externally verified life cycle assessment (LCA). Check out this video for a simple breakdown of what EPDs are all about!
Our declarations ensure that our components form a sound basis for green building practices, saving money and increasing comfort while creating healthier environments for people to live, work and play. Insulation is an easy and cost-effective win in that objective. It saves far more energy over the product life cycle than is needed to produce, transport and remove it.
Products with EPD’s are recognized in both BREEAM and LEED projects, the most widely recognized environmental assessment methodologies in the construction industry today. Here's everything you need to know about BREEAM and LEED certification.
Cradle to Cradle is our philosophy, design methodology, and certification program that seeks to evolve production and consumption practices to the extent that they have a positive impact on people and planet. Products that make sense. For health & environment. Cradle to Cradle drives continuous improvement in optimizing our environmental impacts with a focus on a circular economy.
We fully commit ourselves to the protection of human health and environment. We take that responsibility seriously, so that also goes for the materials that we use in our production. All Thermaflex components are REACH compliant: risk-free and safe to use under any conditions in conformity with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals by EU regulation.
