LEED & Sustainability Increasing efficiency in production as well as elevating innovation in products and processes are key strategic drivers for Norton. Continual focus on these initatives translates to key benefits for our customers and building occupants: •Lower operating costs - many of our products far exceed ANSI/BHMA standards, translating to longer product life and easier maintenance (plus less waste in landfills). •Energy conservation - a clear result of our energy-efficient doors and frames. •Healthier and safer for occupants - comes from our using non-hazardous materials and providing effective life-safety solutions. Sustainability is a driver throughout ASSA ABLOY's value chain; it is an important element in innovation, in sourcing, in production, in employee development, in applying ASSA ABLOY's products and solutions, and in the Group's relation to external stakeholders.
