NIT Naval Interior Team is steering the company towards more sustainable strategies by measuring the environmental impact of its operations.
Together with VTT (Technical Research Center of Finland) NIT has developed a tool for calculating the carbon footprint of its operations and products, specifically for turnkey interior areas. The calculation method was created as a part of the GreeNIT program.
“GreeNIT program is a business model that aims to steer NIT’s operations in a more sustainable direction and develop more efficient, environmentally friendly working methods. We believe that by doing things more efficiently and sensibly, we are actually doing it also more sustainable”, says Juhani Määttänen, Design & Engineering Director.
“GreeNIT aims to concretely demonstrate this by also measuring the effectiveness of the model and the calculation tool is one part of this development. With sustainability, GreeNIT takes us from knowing to doing!”
The calculation is based on EN 15804 standard, which considers all product life cycle stages. NIT is able to calculate the Global Warming Potential (GWP) index and show the carbon dioxide equivalent value (CO2e) of the area delivered. Data includes also Carbon hand print, the positive climate impact, that creates emission reduction potential for the user.
NIT desires to profile itself as a pioneer in the environmental issues. GreeNIT enables reducing emissions through design and operative solutions and makes the environmental impacts visible. This provides NIT customers the opportunity to choose sustainable solutions for their projects. NIT strongly believes that improving the sustainability of their own operations encourages others to pursue the same.
