The growing worldwide concern for the environment and global warming caused by the increase in CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, a consequence of our massive dependence of non-renewable energies, has meant that energy efficiency is now a matter of utmost importance.
Buildings represent approximately 40% of this energy consumption and the lifts (and other forms of vertical transportation) contribute to this figure by 4%-8%. This not only applies to newly manufactured lifts but also to existing lifts, which are often the least energy efficient because of their dated technology.
At Classic Lifts we believe that the conservation of the planet is our responsibility. Therefore, our products are conceived, designed and manufactured using the best resources whilst seeking maximum energy efficiency. We know that we have a lot to improve but we want to embark upon this journey with honesty because, for us, environmental sustainability is not just a mere publicity stunt.
Classic Lifts Ltd and BREEAM
BREEAM – the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method – sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building’s environmental performance.
A BREEAM assessment uses recognised measures of performance to evaluate a building’s specification, design, construction and use. The measures used represent a broad range of categories and criteria from energy to ecology. They include aspects related to energy and water use, the internal environment, pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes.
Classic Lifts remain committed
to saving energy
Products are continually assessed and enhanced, taking advantage of the ever improving technologies in energy efficiency.
