Building for the future
This is how
Sustainability, C02 reduction and energy transition are topics we cannot ignore with the current climate change. As a family business, Meuwissen Gerritsen takes its responsibility to care for future generations, not only with our products but also as a producer. By doing so, we are ready for the future and contribute to a healthier sustainable world.
For decades, products from Meuwissen Gerritsen have played a crucial role in the energy performance of buildings. Our products form a closed shell around the insulation and construction of a building or house. The foils and tapes in Meuwissen Gerritsen’s product range protect the insulation and prevent unwanted energy loss. With the right application, this increases the insulation value of existing buildings and significantly reduces C02 emissions.
Impact on the climate
We strive to continuously reduce the impact of our product on the climate. We pay a lot of attention to product innovations to increase functionality and we continuously look for ways to reduce the C02 footprint of the production. Our factory in Haarlem runs on green energy which is supplied by our more than 600 solar panels. Production in the Netherlands under strict environmental conditions limits the impact of production compared to imports from abroad.
But this is not enough. In the coming years, we have set ourselves the goal of increasing the circularity of our products through recycling, structurally reducing our energy consumption, increasing distribution efficiency and further minimizing packaging.
