SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING Environmentally sustainable manufacturing practices reduce energy and water use while minimizing the creation of waste by-products that harm the environment. Sustainable manufacturing at its best addresses green issues throughout the entire life cycle of a product, from inception to distribution and disposal, and in this way, contributes to the development of a green economy.
ENERGY EFFICIENT By using less energy to accomplish a task — through our actions and the use of energy efficient products — we reduce the size (and cost) of the energy system needed to power our lives. In addition to generating savings, energy efficiency also reduces the impact we have on our environment, including lowering our greenhouse gas emissions.
INNOVATION Innovation is key to the progression of a green economy. This is why the Eco Suite is piloting new green technology as part of Tridel's collaboration with Tower Labs @ MaRS. The non-profit research and development organization conducts pilot and demonstration projects of green building innovations to help accelerate the adoption of clean and efficient energy technologies and green building products.
LOCALLY SOURCED PRODUCTS The more locally sourced materials that go into a product, the smaller its ecological footprint. Shopping for locally sourced products creates sustainable economies that are less dependent on imports. Less shipping means less traffic congestion, pollution and carbon emissions.
FSC-CERTIFIED Products and processes that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) have met high standards for environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable forestry practices. The FSC accredits independent, certification organizations, which assess a company's forest management practices to determine if it has met FSC standards, as well as verify that it is using FSC-certified suppliers. This ensures a green chain of custody.
RENEWABLE ENERGY A key step in protecting the environment is the advancement of products and technologies made of or that support energy from natural sources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat. Renewable energy technologies are clean sources of energy with a much lower environmental impact than conventional energy technologies. Most importantly, they won't run out.
DURABILITY The most effective way to reduce our impact on the environment is to incorporate environmental considerations into product development. Goods designed to last longer ultimately reduce the number of new products needed, and thus the materials and energy used to make them, not to mention the pollution generated by their manufacture.
RECYCLED/REPURPOSED Recycling is important for a host of reasons, including sparing natural resources that might otherwise be consumed. Did you know it takes less energy to recycle materials than to process virgin materials? Less industrial production means less greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. Plus, recycling reduces the waste that ends up in landfills.
ECO AWARENESS Fostering an appreciation, knowledge, values and skills around sustainable living is key to inspire ecologically sound decisions and actions – in other words, living green. Products that empower, educate and enable green actions improve eco awareness.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY Clean air is required for good health and since Canadians spend close to 90% of our time inside, it's never been more important to address indoor air quality. Ways to improve air quality include eliminating sources of pollution (for example, gas burning fireplaces), choosing products that emit fewer toxins, and introducing ventilation systems.
WATER SAVINGS Water may flow freely but at what cost? Up to 15% of a typical energy bill is from heating water. And while water is considered a renewable resource, pressures on the resource are growing. Products that reduce water use in homes are key to water conservation and savings.
