BEING “GREEN” FOR IVM MEANS
RESPECT THE PLANET AND ITS EXTRAORDINARY GIFTS.
IT MEANS TO ACT CONSCIOUSLY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE
ENVIRONMENT AND PEOPLE'S WELL-BEING
The IVM FURNITURE and PARTITIONING SYSTEMS therefore help to improve the energy, environmental, comfort and health performance of a building or part of a building; in particular, they meet the rating requirements of LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), an international green building certification system.
IVM uses CARB ATCM Phase 2 and TSCA Title VI compliant panels for 100% of its production due to their low formaldehyde emission, making them suitable for use in areas with stringent emission standards. This significantly reduces the risks arising from this factor: a big step towards PROTECTING HEALTH.
For IVM, sustainability also means using recyclable materials with recycled content.
This is why we also design our products with recycling in mind, simplifying the dismantling of components and the separation of the various materials for easier disposal.
We also source raw materials from suppliers that use materials with recycled and low emissions content, as well as recycled and recyclable packaging.
In addition, the panels used in IVM products are CARB P2 compliant, in other words they contain just half the percentage of formaldehyde emissions permitted by applicable regulations. This means less risk from this factor.
With an investment of 2,500,000 euros in 2011, IVM installed a photovoltaic system at its Lissone production site, consisting of 3,600 panels. This represents a significant step towards reducing the exploitation of natural resources.
The solar energy produced also allows us to significantly reduce C02 emissions, keeping the environment cleaner.
