The Compontents

All major components are recyclable. Timber, aluminium, glass and gaskets can be reprocessed in new applications after the end of the products life.

The Office

Sustainable & Recyclable Office Materials

Introduced from 2007 Miglas will work with recycled paper and sustainable office materials.

  • All paper comes from 100% sustainable resources
  • All new folders are 100% recycled plastic - no more metal parts and composite materials that can not be recycled at the end of a folders life cycle. The old folders will be used until end of life cycle.
  • Paper has a new internal cycle and is reused for filing or draft prints.
  • Using more email communication reduces the amount of fax paper by around 50%. The showroom provides the customer with the option to send a link to their email account via touch screen, instead of taking a hardcopy brochure. This reduces the impact of paper used for brochures by around 35%.
  • Lower stock, longer life cycle of paper in the office - The new system saves space and reduces the environmental impact.

Waste Management

Normal bins are banned from work places. Every work place has a facility to recycle paper or reuse it in the office process.
Additionally three stations were created to recycle glass, plastic and organic waste. The organic waste is composted on the property the rest is recycled in external facilities.

The system reduces waste that goes in to landfill by around 60%.
