CERTIFIED BUILDING

TECHNAL profiles are extruded using low CO2 footprint aluminium. This is achieved by using renewable energy and by recycling aluminium from post-consumer scrap metal. This entire recycling process is certified by DNV-GL, Det Norske Veritas, an independent certification company heaquartered in Oslo, Norway and with 350 offices in over 100 countries around the world.

The Hydro Group, to which TECHNAL belongs, has been the first company to be recognised by the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI), the internationally recognised standard for the evaluation of sustainability throughout the entire life cycle of aluminium, convering from when the metal was obtained, its production and use and up to recycling when the product has reached the end of its lifecycle.

 

From the design, selection of materials and the way its produced, products must offer the benefits that the market needs while respecting the environment as much as possible. 

We classify our product range under the criteria of the Cradle to Cradle seal, and independent institute that certifies products and processes from a circularity perspective. We have several certified Cradle to Cradle seties, including the production at our plant in Miranda de Ebro in Spain. This way we can ensure that the carbon footprint is as low as possible when transporting our goods. 

 

LEED, BREEAM, WELL, and VERDE are some of the most recognised organisations for evaluating the sustainability and environmental impact of buildings. Among the most relevant requirements to obtain green building certifications are the credits provided by the materials chosen to be used. 

In additon to providing products that have a lower environmental impact, we can provide the certifications needed that contribute to the achievement of the various green building rating schemes available to you. 

These certifications include ISO certifications on quality and environemental management, official test certifications, Cradle to Cradle certifiations and more. This information is summarised in the image below:
