Ritec International is delighted to announce that they are finalists for the G13 Environmental Initiative of the Year Award with their ClearShield Eco-System™. The new System has been recognised by the Award Judges for its ‘green benefits’ that apply to all types of glass, exterior and interior, and include –
– Energy savings for routine glass maintenance – reduces by 50% on average the energy requirements for routine glass washing including transportation to site, operation of access equipment, production of cleaning materials and consumption of water;
– Reduced carbon footprint – by reducing energy requirements, ClearShield® also reduces by 50% on average the climate-changing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases;
– Enhanced day-lighting – by maintaining the original light transmission of glass.
In addition, the System can renovate glass to its original state which reduces the environment impact of replacing the glass with a new product.
This latest award nomination comes hot on the heels of the company being awarded the ISO 14001 standard. This is accepted internationally and accredits Ritec as having an effective environmental management system in place within its business. This International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact; and is achieved with the commitment of the company as a whole.
