DORMA and the Environment

Being a friend of the environment is not a new initiative at DORMA. DORMA has been practicing environmentally conscious manufacturing processes in its facilities for many years. Careful attention is paid not only to the amount of energy we consume but what we emit back into the environment. As a company, we seek out ways to be environmentally friendly in how we design, how we operate our facilities, and in our partnerships with suppliers who are committed to sustainable development.

Each DORMA facility in North America continues to recycle, reuse, or salvage our materials and scrap that include:

  • Steel and Aluminum Chips
  • Cardboard
  • Machining Metals
  • Tools
  • Water
  • Oils
  • Newsprint/Magazines and Office Paper
  • Wood

DORMA Environmental Policy

DORMA understands the importance of the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification and welcomes the challenge to build safe and sustainable buildings by aligning our products with the standards set by LEED.

We believe that environmentally friendly practices make us more efficient and help us manage our costs which in turn benefit the architect, designer, facility owner, and the community.
