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.

Environmental Product Declarations

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) documents the cradle-to-grave life cycle of a product and how it affects the environment. An EPD is a verified document that reports environmental data of products based on life cycle assessment (LCA) and other relevant information and in accordance with the international standard ISO 14025 (Type III Environmental Declarations).

An important aspect of EPD® is to provide the basis of a fair comparison of products and services by its environmental performance. EPDs can reflect the continuous environmental improvement of products and services over time and are able to communicate and add up relevant environmental information along a product''s supply chain.
