Sustainability is important to us at Saand and efforts are made everyday to reduce our impact on the environment. Our responsibility to the environment does not stop with supplying high performance building materials. It extends to our own internal efforts to minimize our impact on the community that we work and live in. Below is a highlight of some of our efforts.
Installation of high efficiency boilers and smart thermostats have resulted in savings of 136,000 cubic metres of natural gas annually.
Installation of high efficiency lighting, high efficiency air compressors, and air compressor curtailment have resulted in savings of 640,000 kWh of electricity annually.
Through increased efforts to divert materials from landfill, we have reduced our waste to landfill by 78%, resulting in a reduction of 1240 metric tons annually.
Installation of closed loop recycling systems and modern water filtration allow us to manage and reduce our water consumption.
