CONTRIBUTES TO ATAINMENT OF GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATIONS

As part of the Hydro Group, TECHNAL can assure fabricators, end-users, clients, architects and specifiers that we take social, economic and environmental protection seriously when it comes to our business activities, supply chain, and the effect that our operations may have.

The Responsible Sourcing of Construction Products addresses aspects such as stakeholder engagement, labour practises and the management of the supply chain to ensure we make as little impact on the environment as possible. To meet the standard, certain elements needed to be met. The Standard also provides a route to obtaining credits for green building certifications like BREEAM, LEED and REED.



The Responsible Sourcing Certification is a reliable and transparent way to ensure that materials and products that you choose aren’t just having a low impact on the environment, they also support local communities and approach supply chain and product management as sustainably as possible. By choosing TECHNAL products, the maximum amount of credits under certification schemes like BREAAM can be achieved as well as “peace of mind” that you are choosing the products and materials with the lowest impact possible.
