  • “Cradle to Cradle”

    We are committed to ecological design and sustainability: we see this as a pledge to the future. Our philosophy and our compliance with ‘Cradle to Cradle’ requirements are expressed through and implemented in three of the company’s operational areas:

    • Products: By selecting safe and recyclable or biodegradable materials, optimising ingredient chemistry, designing products that can be recycled, keeping materials in a closed-loop during the course of the various product life cycles.
    • Operations: By applying ‘Cradle to Cradle’ to our internal processes, using safe chemical processes, maximising the use of renewable energy, optimising our carbon/water footprint, creating a healthy and productive workplace.
    • Organisation: By educating our employees on the philosophy and premises of eco-design and sustainability, adopting and encouraging an effective ecological vision, creating top-down and bottom-up structures to maximise the value of the skills and perspectives of all our employees, integrating ‘Cradle to Cradle’ principles into our decision-making processes and our success.

    Updated EPDs

    An EPD is a certified environmental declaration drawn up in compliance with the ISO 14025 international standard (Type III Environmental Declarations). This means that Burdinola’s wall-mounted benches and ST fume cupboards are covered by this certificate.

    It provides environmental information on products/services based on life cycle analysis (LCA) and other relevant information in compliance with the standard. An EPD shows the environmental performance of any product/service that is analysed in an objective way.
