ASSA ABLOY Achieves More Than 150 GreenCircle Certifications

ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions has achieved over 150 GreenCircle certifications for products and/or manufacturing sites, a fresh milestone in ASSA ABLOY’S commitment to a sustainable future. Alternative party verifications, like those from GreenCircle Certified , offer an additional degree of trust for the client, validating claims on product sustainability.

“It is possible to become overwhelmed by terms like ‘green’, ‘eco-friendly’, and ‘sustainable’ during research for responsible building products,” said Amy Musanti, director, sustainable solutions, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas . “Our GreenCircle Certifications enable us to keep credible, current data for the processes and products, and helps designers and architects easily identify contributors to green building certification programs like LEED and WELL.”

To get certification, ASSA ABLOY experienced a rigorous assessment process with GreenCircle to supply transparency on the sustainable products offered. The products include doors, door frames, door operators, accessories, and a number of access control solutions. Furthermore, ASSA ABLOY facilities have obtained GreenCircle certifications for sustainable manufacturing practices, reducing environmentally friendly impacts of manufactured products. Practices include closed-loop and industrial ecology processes, reduced amount of emissions and waste, water conservation, and energy efficiency practices.

In 2020, ASSA ABLOY established a long-term sustainability initiative , setting science-based targets, such as for example halving emissions by 2030, and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
