High environmental standards have always been a cornerstone at Vestfrost Solutions. We employ numerous initiatives to reduce costs of product usage and to minimize environmental impact.
This is valuable to our customers, who can sleep with a clear conscience, knowing that they buy sustainable, clean refrigerators and freezers from a responsible partner.
Low power consumption
Vestfrost Solutions is a market leader in low energy products. Our customers will experience low operating costs from sustainable solutions that have the least impact on the environment. We consider this as a pivotal ingredient of being a responsible partner.
Our constant work with energy optimization allows us to attach only the best energy rating labels on our refrigerators and freezers. For a closer look, see our case for bottle cooler M 200: the world’s most energy efficient bottle cooler.
Pure and natural refrigerants
Vestfrost Solutions was one of the first manufacturers of refrigerators and freezers to make use of natural and eco-friendly refrigerants. Virtually all our products are offered with natural refrigerants R290 (Propane) or R600a (Isobutane). We also use Nature R, which is Vestfrost Solutions’ own natural mix.
The three types of refrigerants – which have been part of our program for more than 15 years – are commonly defined as organic compound hydrocarbon. These are pure refrigerants free of gas with no impact on ozone depletion.
Our products are built to last for many years, which is the first step in creating sustainable solutions. However, no refrigerator or freezer will last forever.
When it is time for disposal of one of our products, you can rest assure that we have taken great measures to minimize environmental impact. On average, Vestfrost Solutions’ products are 80 percent recyclable. The recyclable components can be used in new products; thus leading to less energy usage during future production.
Vestfrost Solutions have recently implemented optimized product packaging. By using expanded polystyrene instead of wood, our new and much lighter packaging weighs 50 to 75 percent less than previously while being just as protective.
Packaging size has also been reduced, making it possible to fit 33 % more units on a standard high-cube container. This results in reduced carbon emissions during product transportation.
Toxic substance elimination
Vestfrost Solutions comply with the RoHS Directive (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), which is also commonly known as the lead-free directive. This means that all our products are totally free from lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, PBB and PBDE.
ISO 14001 / OHSAS 18001
Vestfrost Solutions are certified in accordance to the internationally approved ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. This means that we have a clearly defined environmental management system with operational guidelines, activities and responsibilities throughout the company that ensure respectful conduct towards the environment and our employees.
Vestfrost Solutions make use of an intelligent central system that controls and optimizes lighting, heating, air condition and ventilation in all production facilities. This creates a better work environment for our employees, while also reducing our facilities’ energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions during manufacturing.
