Green Ventilation guides you towards the most sustainable solutions

Considering global climate change, sustainability has never been more relevant than it is today. In response, we have redefined and extended our Green Ventilation concept at the Systemair Group.

Green Ventilation Trademark Outside

Previously, the Green Ventilation label only indicated that a product contained an energy-efficient EC motor. To meet high sustainability demands and challenge us, we have expanded its scope to address other critical environmental factors. As a result, Green Ventilation is now a trustworthy environmental performance benchmark for our products.

Green Ventilation is a simple guide to choosing the most sustainable solutions within our portfolio. Only products that meet easily verifiable sustainability criteria can carry our new environmental performance mark.

Green Ventilation includes hands-on sustainability criteria for each product area

For each Systemair product area, a set of sustainability requirements define when a product qualifies for the Green Ventilation label.

The defined requirements are not just “green marketing”, they are measurable and verifiable.

In addition to energy efficiency, Green Ventilation addresses a product’s impact in terms of Indoor Air Quality, safety, comfort, global warming potential, and more.

Green Ventilation requirements are reviewed frequently to reflect technological advances and to continuously raise the bar.

Green Ventilation is based on a set of globally applicable, general sustainability principles

In addition to product-specific Green Ventilation requirements, the following general principles are always applicable independent of location or solution.

Our products always comply with current and upcoming European Union Ecodesign requirements – or comparable legislation in other regions.

Energy efficiency is central to our products and solutions, enabling ever-lower energy usage in buildings, thereby avoiding greenhouse gas emissions.

We focus on circularity when developing products, considering material choice and efficiency. We design for durability, repairability and upgradability.

Our manufacturing facilities and supply chains continuously reduce their carbon footprint through many initiatives, including increasing energy efficiency and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

Worldwide, minimum product requirements

In the following, we guide you through each product area and outline the criteria for when products are entitled to carry our Green Ventilation label.

For certain categories, North America-specific requirements apply. These are outlined further below.
