Studco Building Systems® is an ISO 14001 compliant company. What exactly does this mean to you and your customers?
ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems all around the world. Our manufacturing processes minimize waste, prevent pollution, and recycle wherever possible. This includes manufacturing special length products for all types of projects, having self-contained building system solutions that do not rely on 3rd party suppliers beyond our control, designing products to fulfill the BCA Energy Efficiency program, and signing up with Greenfleet to offset carbon emissions of our corporate sales vehicles, to name just a few of our efforts.
International markets demand green products and processes
In Europe, green-products and processes are a must if you hope to build there. Many procurement offices require proof of ISO 14001 compliance before working with a new vendor. This compliance proves that you are a green company and meet basic environmental milestones and legal requirements. So, your customers can rest easy, knowing that Studco’s innovative building products meet rigorous environmental and safety standards now, and for many years to come.
Building with green materials attracts customers
One of the fastest growing trends in construction projects is building with green materials. Customers want to buy from environmentally conscious companies, and building with Studco products can assure that you are seen as an environmentally friendly construction company. This can also earn Green Star points for Green Star certified buildings.
How Studco Meets ISO 14001 Standards
Some examples of how Studco® metal building components meet ISO 14001 standards include:
- Studco steel stud framing, steel stud track, and other steel building products are manufactured using up to 30% of recycled steel material.
- All Studco products, including stud framing clips, steel wall studs, and drywall studs are shipped in 100% recyclable packaging.
- All Studco lightweight steel framing and steel framing systems generate little waste in on-site installations.
Green construction materials are here to stay
Customers want products produced in environmentally friendly ways. This has been a growing customer demand over the last decade, and shows no sign of stopping. Even large companies such as Sony, General Motors, and Xerox have earned ISO 14001 certification, and many of these companies demand compliance from its suppliers as well. Demand for certification will only grow as more and more international companies earn ISO 14001 certification.
