Producing with the environment in mind
The entire StairCampus has been built and structured with love and attention for people, planet and animals – not only can you enjoy a beautiful staircase, but you can also better preserve nature. Van Dijk strives to be a sustainable business. This goes beyond our production alone.
There are over 1,600 solar panels with an annual yield of no less than 475,000 kWh. This means that Van Dijk self-sufficient when it comes to generating electricity.
At Van Dijk, and throughout the StairCampus, there is full LED lighting in offices and production and warehouse areas. The chosen type of lighting is 90% more efficient than incandescent lamps, 85% more efficient than halogen lamps and 50% more efficient in comparison with fluorescent lighting. In addition to the savings in terms of energy consumption, the light level has been improved, which creates a more pleasant working environment.
Another part of being a sustainable business is separating waste. The waste is separated in the offices, production and warehouse. With the assistance of the waste processing company Renewi, the entire StairCampus helps protect the environment every year. In 2020, for example, 89% of the waste could be recycled. In this way, the StairCampus is able to reduce its ecological footprint every year.
When it comes to assembly work, the entire StairCampus, including Van Dijk, strives for the right (tailor-made) packaging solutions for each individual customer which have the least possible impact on the environment.
