A Company Commitment to the Environment
Perimeter Solutions is committed to manufacturing superior products while at the same time protecting and preserving the Earth’s natural resources.
Perimeter Solutions’ Green Bay, Wisconsin operation has been developed with a “green” responsibility to the environment. The buildings are designed to be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building operators and owners with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
The company’s Norway operation, has been awarded an Eco-Lighthouse Certification, a prestigious status that is supported by the Norwegian Ministry of the Environment. The Eco-Lighthouse Certification recognizes SOLBERG as a company working toward sustainability by implementing practices and processes, which reduce impact on the environment and reduce overall enterprise costs.
The Eco-Lighthouse qualification process, which took four months to complete, involved key management and select employees at the Norway operation. The process involved employees working in collaboration to conduct an environmental analysis of practices and procedures at the manufacturing facility. They then formed “environmental teams” to develop action plans and executed solutions to fulfill Eco-Lighthouse certification requirements. Perimeter Solutions’ environmental analysis and action plan is focused on the following areas:
Perimeter Solutions is committed to the goals of quality, service and safety – and to environmental responsibility. It’s a philosophy that enables us to flourish while delivering ever greater innovation and value.
Perimeter Solutions’ Company Position on Fluorine-Containing Firefighting Foams
It is the position of Perimeter Solutions that our SOLBERG® Fire Suppressant foams are the world’s most effective firefighting foam concentrates for flame knockdown, fire control, extinguishment, and burnback resistance. Control, extinguishing time, and burnback resistance are paramount to the safety of firefighters everywhere.
The Voluntary Stewardship Program of the US EPA stated that by the end of 2010, the industry would work to achieve an intermediate goal of 95% reduction in the production and use of long-chain perfluorinated chemicals (LCPFCs). By the end of 2015, the goal was to phase out the production and use of long-chain perfluorinated chemicals. The SOLBERG Company achieved full 2015 compliance with its full range of fluorine-free foam concentrates.
While this Voluntary Stewardship Program addresses the Persistence, Bioaccumulation, and Toxicity (PBT) of long chain perfluorinated chemicals, it does not address the firefighting performance of foam concentrates based on the newer generation of short-chain perfluorinated chemicals.
Perimeter Solutions is committed to leading the foam fire suppression industry with innovative and high-performance products
