Armstrong Creates New Carbon Policy
'Planet Proposition' Increases Company's Carbon Reduction Commitment
TORONTO — Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced the creation of Planet Proposition, a plan to increase the company’s carbon reduction commitment that describes to its customers and employees how environmental stewardship is ingrained in the Armstrong business.
The main pillars are designing, promoting, and applying the most energy-efficient fluid flow solutions; applying stringent environmental and health safety standards, and improvement metrics to Armstrong’s operations; pursuing projects that integrate renewables and pave the way to net-zero carbon buildings; and educating and supporting the Armstrong community to make environmentally friendly choices at work and at home.
One of the cornerstones of Armstrong’s Planet Proposition is its unique design envelope technology, which was created to provide green, cost-effective, and flexible building mechanical solutions. Design envelope technology integrates the latest selection of control and hydronic tools into heat-transfer solutions that naturally accommodate changes in building design and demand to ensure that system performance is at an optimum at any given time.
“We believe it is critically important for everyone to do what they can to reduce their carbon footprint,” said Lex van der Weerd, CEO, Armstrong Fluid Technology. “In addition to helping our customers worldwide significantly reduce their energy consumption, our internal initiatives are designed to improve the environmental performance of Armstrong facilities, not only in energy usage but also in water consumption, indoor air and lighting quality, paper usage, recycling of resources, landscaping, and certifications.”
