There are many environmental sustainability protocols for buildings around the world, such as: ITACA in Italy, LEED® in USA, WELL® in USA, DGNB® in Germany, BREEAM® in Great Britain, HQE® in France, MINERGIE® in Switzerland and GECA® in Australia.
Although they have different procedural approaches, all of the protocols assign scores to buildings based on their environmental impact and increasingly their human impact on the place where they are built, in both the short and long terms. In essence, products such as raised floors are rated based on a detailed analysis of raw materials, components, processing, transport, installations, modifications, recycling and disposal, which must be done already at the design stage.
To date, JVP has design, production and certification practices for its products and systems compliant with the strictest design requirements typical of new design or construction buildings, the only ones guaranteeing real and effective environmental sustainability of the world our children will live in.
JVP has always worked hard to reduce the environmental impact of its systems throughout their entire lifetime, starting from the choice of raw materials, followed by production methods that limit waste and consumption, installation and modifications, to an advanced program of reuse or complete recycling, in a circular economy approach, if disposal is required.
To make it easier to understand, JVP has called on experts in the field to help it present the BREEAM®, LEED®, WELL® and CAM (Italy) assessments in a summary sheet.
