(Camfil Farr News) – Sustainability has been an increasingly popular word at many companies, and it’s easy to see why: By using resources in a more efficient, more environmentally friendly way, businesses not only save costs, but help support the communities — and the world — around them. But actions, of course, speak louder than words, and while many companies talk about sustainability, they have yet to truly drive the concept across their organization.
That makes Camfil Farr — the world’s leading provider of clean air solutions — both an exception and a leader. For years it has embedded sustainability into its business, ensuring that every product and process is developed in a way that makes efficient, responsible use of natural resources. Its cutting-edge commercial air filters, for example, use advanced materials and techniques to do a better job removing harmful particles from the air — while using less energy than traditionally designed filters. Indeed, customers that have switched to Camfil Farr air filters have been able to reduce their HVAC energy costs by up to 40 percent. And because the filters last longer than more conventional designs, disposal costs and waste are also reduced. That’s a win for business, and for the environment.
To highlight its commitment to sustainability — and demonstrate how green products can benefit all businesses — Camfil Farr has released a video on its sustainability efforts and goals. The film, featuring the company’s CEO, Alan O’Connell, doesn’t just stress sustainability’s position as a top priority for Camfil Farr, but spells out the steps the company has taken to lead the air filtration industry on this front — working to make a better world for future generations.
These steps include a company mandate to incorporate sustainability into all aspects of Camfil Farr’s business, from how it develops products to how it manages energy and waste in its own facilities to what it gives back to the communities in which it operates.
“We aim to be the greenest and cleanest air filtration company in the world,” says O’Connell, “showing our customers how they can save energy and reduce their impact on the environment.”
In Trosa, Sweden, Camfil Farr has constructed a state-of-the-art 2,500-square-meter Technology Centre — an innovation hub that features what is probably the air filtration industry’s most advanced laboratory for studying and improving indoor air quality. The work done here helps Camfil Farr build products that use energy more efficiently and maintain optimal performance for longer periods of time. That’s important, because for every percent that Camfil Farr improves energy performance customers save more than 100 million kilowatt hours a year. The less energy used, the less carbon emissions, too.
Savings like these don’t just boost the corporate pocketbook — they boost the world around us, and our future.
