SALTO Systems, a manufacturer of electronic access control solutions, has received carbon-neutral certification for its factory headquarters in Spain and across all of its operations. Carbon neutrality is achieved by calculating a carbon footprint and reducing it to zero through a combination of efficiency measures in-house and supporting external emission reduction projects. SALTO has local offices in 25 countries including the United States and Canada.
SALTO has focused on achieving carbon neutrality through ambitious reductions in emissions across all stages of the product life cycle including design, production, energy efficiency and recycling. One hundred percent of SALTO’s electricity is generated by either on-site solar panels or purchased as certified green electricity. All emissions that cannot be eliminated are compensated with the Madre de Dios Amazon Forest Conservation Project. This verified carbon offsetting project reduces deforestation and helps to establish sustainable forest management practices.
"We want to lead the way in the delivery of sustainable keyless and smart access control solutions by providing our customers with smart lock products and services that reflect their own values,” said SALTO CEO Javier Roquero. “We are very conscious of our responsibility to consider the environmental, social, and economic impact of our organization and today’s news about our carbon neutral achievement is just the latest stage in this journey."
