Assa Abloy Security Doors Launches Sustainability Whitepaper

Following considerable investment in its manufacturing processes to reduce environmental impact and improve efficiency, ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has launched an insightful whitepaper dedicated to sustainability in doorset manufacturing. 

The whitepaper, entitled ‘How can manufacturers begin to mitigate and quantify their environmental impact from a steel doorset manufacturer’s perspective?’ will be available to download from

The introduction of the Government Construction Strategy (GCS) 2016-20 has set a benchmark for construction clients to adopt a whole-life approach to cost and carbon reduction across the industry, in addition to Construction 2025, which sets out long term goals to reduce environmental impact.

In response to the growing demand for products that mitigate environmental impact, the whitepaper considers manufacturers’ use of materials, energy sources and the manufacturing process itself, as well as examining the whole-life cost of products.

Brian Sofley, Managing Director at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors and author of the whitepaper, said:

“The significant impact the construction industry has upon resources and the environment means it can no longer afford to operate with a ‘business as usual’ mentality.

“This, in conjunction with government strategy, means that manufacturers must implement business strategies and manufacturing processes that reduce environmental impact. This whitepaper provides information and guidance about these challenges, and I hope it will provide a useful starting point for manufacturers involved in the construction industry.”
