NovaBell is also a member of the main international environmental protection standard issuing bodies.
We see environmental protection as a way of life, which we have put into practice in the NovaBell Ecosystem, an integrated process that combines the reuse of reject output, waste reduction and energy saving with absolute quality of finished product, which, containing at least 40% recycled material, can truly be described as environment-friendly.
The NovaBell environmental policy, which complies in fully with the relevant regulations, is expressed through:
CERTIQUALITY is an organisation established to serve businesses, accredited for the certification of corporate quality, environment and OHSAS systems and for product certification. The list of certified products is available on request.Go to official website
EPD is a voluntary environmental product declaration, certified in relation to international standards (ISO 14025 / EN 15804), which documents the product’s environmental footprint throughout its life cycle. It is a new tool that justifies and reinforces the choice of products of high environmental quality within the top sustainable building rating systems.Go to official website
Certification is given in the United States by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Similar associations, such as the Green Building Council Italia of which NovaBell is associated (www.gbcitalia.org),are rapidly appearing in other countries. The LEED rating system evaluates and certifies the environmental, social and economic sustainability of buildings, considered on the whole.Go to official website
Breeam (the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is a certification method that assesses buildings’ environmental quality, in operation since 1990. Breeam uses the “green guide calculator” to rate the ecological performance of a number of construction materials.Go to official website
