We in NIT take into consideration the ecological, social and economic sustainability and want to steer the company towards more sustainable strategies. Our GreeNIT business model focuses on finding more sustainable methods on sites and at the office. By improving our own operations to be more environmentally friendly, we encourage others to do the same.
CARBON FOOTPRINT CALCULATOR
As a part of GreeNIT program, the Carbon Footprint Calculator was deisgned. The Carbon Footprint Calculator is developed with VTT (Technical Research Center of Finland) for measuring the environmental impact of NIT delivered areas. It is based on EN 15804 standard that considers the whole product life cycle stages.
NIT calculates the Global Warming Potential (GWP) index of the interior area in order to get the result in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). This data also shows the Carbon hand print (= positive climate impact) which creates emission reduction potential for the user. The environmental load of every material choice is calculated and NIT provides customers the opportunity to choose more sustainable materials.
CASE: Crew Stairs
Stairs were designed in 3D and the carbon emissions were calculated with NIT Carbon Footprint Calculator.
With the calculation carbon emissions were reduced by -719 kg CO2e (-21%).
