At Greenlam, we understand sustainability as how we consume and harness resources, not only in the environment but in the society and economy too. We believe creating beautiful spaces can never be at the cost of causing damage to our planet because climate change is a reality. Hence, we are committed to making better products using processes that are sustainable and their impact gentle on the people and the planet. To keep our impact positive on the environment, we have set up a Green Strategy Group. The group’s task is to single-mindedly work towards developing, implementing and monitoring several green initiatives across our organization. So that whatever we do, we leave behind something meaningful, and not just our carbon footprints.
We have reduced groundwater withdrawal, STP loads with TDS treatable water and consequent energy consumption. It conserves energy wasted in heating fresh water and provides a stable heat gradient ensuring consistent product quality.
Working towards organic solutions, we use naturally occurring products like cashew nut shells instead of synthetic, petrochemical products. These changes might look small, but they make a world of difference.
At Greenlam, we make sure nothing toxic leaves our plants. We maintain continuous research and modification in the production of amino resins and phenolic resins used in the paper impregnation process, resulting in a solvent-free product which reduces fugitive emissions and more importantly, zero effluent discharge from our plants.
We employ 13 million kilos of biofuel annually that offsets 1.16 million tons of CO2 emissions while our solar energy plant generates 0.3 million watts of energy: helping us immensely in conserving the environment.
Our products are FSC® and PEFC certified, validating our claims of sustainable and responsible management of natural resources. Parts of our planted areas also use adaptive tree species indigenous to the regional climate, benefiting the economy and the environment.
The safety of our consumers is always our priority. Hence, our products have a Greenguard, Greenguard Gold, Green Label (Singapore) and EN 16516 certification. Compliant to all the expected standards of VOCs, formalin and other allied chemical constituents’ emissions, Greenlam products are safe to use.
Ensuring a healthy work environment, we carry out periodic tests to keep the indoor air quality in check while conserving the atmospheric air.
Our products are non-hazardous and do not fall in the list of ‘Deleterious Materials’, Appendix J. We do not use asbestos, copper, chromates, lead or any other heavy metals during production. Additionally, our products do not contain regulated levels of NTP (National Toxicological Program) IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) or OSHA Listed Carcinogens.
We only use fuel-efficient and low-gas-emitting vehicles to ensure toxic-free, clean air in the environment.
Greenlam lives by the principle of 3Rs. Real-time monitoring of our resources has significantly reduced our waste production and with the recycling of paper waste, we have saved over 8,000 fully-grown trees.
