Trespa International is one of the first producers of building panels to receive ISO 14001 certification. This Certification confirms that Trespa has a clearly formulated policy of goals and programmes and an environmental management system that is focused on continually improving performance. Trespa offers a genuine sincere approach to sustainable matters. Nature is at the core of it all.
Sustainability became a key part of Trespa’s strategy in 2010. Trespa’s sustainability policy is based on a deeply felt motivation to shift from ‘Being Less Bad’ for the environment to being ‘Good’ and creating new value. Over the years, Trespa has strived to monitor and improve environmental performance and has implemented a number of projects which reflect this. Trespa launched ‘Trespa Second Life’ where facade panels after their service time, instead of being disposed of now can be reused for outdoor furniture and many other applications.
Trespa’s sustainability policy is the creation of high-quality and durable products; if a product is durable it lasts long and the environmental impact of its production is spread over a longer time. Trespa is proud that the reference service life for Trespa Meteon panels is set at 50 years.
