Geberit applies the eco-design testing criterion to all products in development to align them with the principles of sustainability, a standard practice and for the entire product life cycle. Only products which fulfill strict sustainability criteria deserve to be produced, marketed and installed.
Geberit regards eco-design as the key to environmentally friendly products. At the center of these efforts are environmentally friendly materials and functional principles, minimized risks and a high level of resource efficiency in the production process and the product itself. Employees from various disciplines take part in eco-design workshops in order to make each new product better than its predecessor with respect to environmental aspects.
These workshops include a systematic product analysis across all life phases, the verification of statutory requirements as well as the analysis of competitors’ products. Solution approaches are developed on the basis of the eco-design workshops and are included in the specifications.
