Sustainability and environmental thinking are more than just words. They constitute an integral part of the NorDan identity.
The environment and NorDan are on the same team. A responsible approach to environmental issues throughout the value chain ensures solutions with the least possible negative impact on the surroundings.

Longevity and energy efficiency

Two main factors determine how environmentally friendly a finished and installed window is: The expected lifespan of the product and to what degree it can contribute to reducing the buildings' total energy consumption by reducing either heating or cooling of the room through that lifespan. The NorDan product range offers solutions with leading energy performance and longevity to ensure that NorDan windows and doors contribute to a lesser environmental impact.

Responsibility through the value chain

The NorDan environmental approach is implemented throughout the value chain, from material suppliers to how the completed products are being transported to construction sites across Europe. Long-standing relations with leading suppliers ensures products and solutions that take the environmental factor into account. Our own, strict production guidelines guarantee a conscious attitude towards the environment.

Proactive environmental approach

The NorDan environmental approach is just as much about being at the forefront of regulatory requirements as it is about complying with regulations that have already been implemented. By taking a proactive approach and identifying common benefits for ourselves and the surroundings, we have worked actively with environmental issues in our processes, products and product development through decades.

Complete set of declarations

Every single day the companies in the NorDan Group work with environmental-related activities. Environmental aspects have also been designated as a key area for the group through its own Competence Center. Using the product portfolio as a platform, the Competence Center supplies product declarations and life cycle analysis of even the smallest component. They also coordinate the communication between NorDan and the relevant authorities and organizations which issue certificates for construction materials.
