Harmony between humans and the environment (Ecological Panel)
For over 50 years, Gruppo LUBE has been contributing to making everyday life more comfortable and pleasant, by conceiving and designing living solutions that are people-friendly and can be adapted to the need to simplify every action in a domestic environment .
This project has progressed hand-in-hand with protection of the environment. The activities and the production processes are configured and planned to ensure continual improvement of sustainability.
Gruppo LUBE is committed to protecting the environment by creating harmony between people and their surroundings and to contributing to simplifying its customers’ everyday lives. Innovation and the search for solutions improves product quality and functionality. All LUBE kitchens are manufactured using clean energy: a 40,800 m2 photovoltaic plant powers the production processes and reduces CO2 emissions.
QUALITY OF LIFE STARTS WITH RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Cucine LUBE’s respect for the environment is based precisely on this principle. All Group products are the result of a research and innovation process based on safety and sustainability. Quality and low environmental impact are the objectives being pursued every day, with particular focus on design and the resources used.
A further boost in pursuit of these objectives is provided by Pannello Ecologico. The structures of the furniture manufactured by Gruppo Lube are built with Pannello Ecologico, a 100% recycled product made by Gruppo Saviola and the first and the only one to be made from post-consumption wood. Pannello Ecologico was introduced onto the market in 1995 and is FSC-certified. It has always had formaldehyde emissions lower than the permitted minimums, even before the European Union imposed class E1. From collection of the used wood, to its recovery and transformation into a new and functional product, everything takes place within a repeatable cycle that protects the environment and its resources, offering companies and the final consumer an extraordinary opportunity to play an active part in protecting nature.
A further safety measure for the final user is use of polypropylene (PP), a non-toxic and odourless material, for the edges applied on the upper and lower parts and/or on the sides of the furniture. PP has a whole range of positive characteristics: it is resilient, hard-wearing and resistant to chemicals, high temperatures and scratches.
Particular attention is also focused on saving water, an essential resource for sustaining life that is scarce for many populations, and also in Italy in the summer months.
The taps used on Cucine LUBE kitchens reduce water and energy consumption without undermining their function and elegant design.
The benefits to the environment also derive from use of clean energy in all production processes.
The 40,800 m2 photovoltaic plant installed at the company plant supplies 6.2 MWp of power, satisfying the energy needs of production activities and saving 13,870 tons of CO2 emissions into the air.
This commitment contributes to protecting the environment and to offering customers high-quality and durable products.
