Witcom Engineering plastics, part of the Wittenburg Group, recently took on the next step towards 4-star certification under the BREEAM environmental certification systems. This is in line with the vision of Witcom and the Wittenburg Group to operate even more sustainable for a better future.
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), first published by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in 1990, is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings. More than 250,000 buildings have been BREEAM-certified and over a million are registered for certification – in more than 50 countries worldwide.
During expansion of the Witcom factory in Etten-Leur back in 2016, first steps were being made to achieve the highest possible BREEAM certification. With the recent activation of the PV-panels, the highest rating of four stars is now in sight for full certification early 2019.
