In light of global climate change, sustainability has never been more relevant than it is today. In response, at the Systemair Group we have redefined and extended our Green Ventilation concept.
Previously our Green Ventilation label only indicated that a product contained an energy-efficient EC motor. Now, to meet high demands on sustainability and to challenge ourselves, we have expanded its scope to address other key 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 are entitled to carry this environmental performance mark.”Global Products Director, Systemair Group
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 the 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.
It combines various measurable requirements and certifications into one label, limiting the array of “stickers” products receive.
Reduces the need for complex (EPD) Environmental Product Declarations, which are often difficult to compare with similar information from other sources.
It provides peace of mind when you or your client demand high sustainability requirements.
Next to product-specific Green Ventilation requirements, the following general principles are always applicable independent of the 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 taking measures to increase energy efficiency and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
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.
Minimum requirements for AHUs to receive Green Ventilation label:
Eurovent Certified Performance with A+ energy class
