Our environmental responsibility covers the full life cycle of our products, from design and manufacturing to maintenance, modernization, and end-of-life treatment. We carried out a life cycle impact assessment in accordance with the ISO 14040 standard, which showed that our greatest environmental impact stems from the energy consumed by our products during their operational lifetime.

Our commitment to energy efficiency means we are successfully reducing the environmental impact of our products during their life cycle.
