FAGOR IS GREEN


MISSION STATEMENT

To use resources efficiently to preserve the environment and save energy, developing highly efficient products that consume less and save money; contributing to a healthy planet for us and our future generations.


Care of the environment is for us one of the most relevant aspects when designing new products and services. In addition to ensuring that the production process respects environmental management standards, we attempt to make our appliances stand out for the contribution they make during their lifespan to protecting the environment, among other advantages.


How do we achieve this?

From a social perspective, our environmental policy strategy offers advantages to both workers and consumers. It provides workers with environmentally-appropriate working conditions, which, among other benefits, minimizes and eliminates the handling of hazardous materials, while for consumers, the end-users of our products and services, it allows for efficient use of the appliance, which reduces energy and water consumption. Consequently, we also require all of our suppliers to also have environmental management systems established that meet our standards for business partnerships.


In addition to this, Fagor has manufacturing systems established to minimize environmental impact on soil, water, energy and air during the production process. There is also proper waste management and recycling procedures in place after the manufacturing process is completed.


CERTIFICATIONS

In addition to our numerous European product certifications and environmental stewardship awards, Fagor is also notably a participant in the Energy Star program in the USA, a joint program of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department Of Energy. Products that bear the energy star label allow consumers to recognize such products that have been manufactured to save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.


Additionally, Fagor America dishwashers are CEE ( Consortium for Energy Efficiency) qualified products. CEE is a nonprofit organization that works with its members in the U.S. and Canada to promote energy efficient products, technologies, and services.


ULTRA EFFICIENT PRODUCTS

  • Pressure Cookers: save 70% of the cooking time compared to traditional cooking methods. They cook Efficiently Saving Time and Energy.
  • Refrigerators: healthiest refrigerators in the market. Use the coolant R-134 A which doesn’t contribute to the ‘greenhouse effect’.
  • Washers: “Advanced Balance System” extends the life of the products and adjusts water and electricity consumption.
  • Dishwashers: Exclusive Advanced Intelligent System” efficiently regulates the consumption of water and energy while operating at an ultra-low noise level
  • Induction Cooktops: the surface doesn’t heat up, only the pot or the pan does. 90% of the heat goes directly into the cooking vessel, in comparison to only 50% in gas ranges.
