Module D covers the overall production capacity and checks, among other production processes, the management and systems used.

Shaping the future. In harmony with the environment.

Countless internationally recognized certificates attest to the fact that HI-MACS® has a strong focus on ecological aspects. Without exception, all HI-MACS® products are manufactured in accordance with the ISO 14001 environmental standard.

Commitment

LG Hausys conducts and publishes regular environmental audits along with energy consumption analyses. Thanks to the use of non-polluting fuels, greenhouse gas emissions have been cut by 15,000 tons per year since 2008.

Material Safety
Extensive studies – within LG Hausys’ own laboratories as well as tests carried out by other renowned independent institutions – have shown that the HI-MACS® material itself, as well as the cured adhesive, are completely free from formaldehyde and emissions. HI-MACS® has been awarded the Greenguard Gold Indoor Air Quality Certificate.
Manufacturing
The production of this solid surface material is marked by an excellent energy balance. In recent years, the company was very successful in achieving ambitious goals in terms of waste reduction and water conservation. In addition, HI-MACS® plants in Cheongju (Korea) and Atlanta (USA) meet all environmental standards.
Processing
The material allows for virtually waste-free processing. In addition, HI-MACS® installations are extremely strong and durable. They can easily be renewed to their original appearance, meaning they don’t have to be replaced, thus giving a positive long-term environmental footprint.
Transport
Within Europe, HI-MACS® observes the Euro-5 standards for reduced particulate emissions.The partner-network of LG Hausys Europe consists of carefully selected partners with the highest environmental standards: for example, the State-of-the-Art logistics centre in the Netherlands is one of the first buildings to have been constructed in accordance with the WELL Building Standards and awarded the BREEAM Certificate.
This means that it meets the highest requirements for environmentally friendly and healthy construction.
