Colt conditions for a sustainable built environment
The very nature of what we do at Colt contributes to a built environment that is more efficient and sustainable in the use of the world’s natural resources. Our technologies harness natural elements and make them work for the building, to ensure the most efficient use of energy.
Many products in the Colt portfolio contribute to a building’s energy efficiency; for example solar shading that reduces cooling requirements or natural ventilation that lowers internal temperatures and improves air quality with no or minimal energy expenditure.
And we are always searching for new solutions to further improve the environmental performance of our customers’ designs. For example, we are bringing to market a new generation of energy saving products, which in turn help buildings to achieve high energy performance. Our ventilation and cooling products are ever more air tight, better insulated and energy efficient to reduce consumption. Especially energy-efficient products include the Airlite, Firelight and Coltlite ventilators and the Coolstream evaporative cooler.
Not only do we help our customers with their designs’ environmental performance; we also look at the way we run our operations, taking every opportunity to reduce the environmental impact of our activities, both at our offices and at our manufacturing locations. We plan our logistics to optimise efficiency, seek to minimise packaging, reduce waste, recycle and use materials from sustainable or recycled sources.
