We launched our sustainability programme in June 2011 with the goal to further improve the sustainability of Paroc Group. In its first phase, the programme established policies, organised metrics and began planning a sustainability report based on the Global Reporting Initiative. In parallel with the reporting activities, we identified our existing strengths and inventoried our development portfolios in order to reprioritise them. Using these actions as a basis, we can plan, evaluate and implement more extensive development actions. The programme is being run in phases.
The sustainability programme has the following goals:
Paroc Energywise represents a new kind of thinking. This energy-efficient building concept provides ideas, recommendations and instructions to help realise energy-efficient buildings and renovations. The target of the concept is to show the undisputable benefits of an energy-efficient building: cosy living, fresh and healthy indoor air, minimised heating energy costs and decreased CO2 emissions.
We have been running the Energywise programme with experimental pilot projects since the 1990s. This programme ensures that Paroc stays on the cutting edge of development of building insulation solutions and keeps on delivering innovative structural solutions and patents for its customers.
