Eco-efficiency is widely regarded as one of the best ways to move from an unsustainable world to a sustainable one. But what exactly does “eco-efficiency” mean?
Put simply, eco-efficiency helps businesses to limit the negative impact of their processes, products or services on the environment. But rather than being bad for business, eco-efficiency is actually a savvy commercial approach. Because eco-efficiency is about more than being seen to do the right thing, it can also generate greater operational efficiencies and increased value.
“Corporations will continue the march toward sustainable production because it makes sense and is a business necessity.”
Chief responsibility officer, Dell
Some of the key benefits of eco-efficient products include:
- Reduction of energy and water
- Less raw material usage
- Reduction of waste and pollution levels
- Longer product life
At Westco, we’ve long been a champion of more sustainable products. For example, TRVs that help homes to become more carbon friendly while reducing annual heating bills. And, adding to our range of eco-efficient products, our new Clever Taps combine striking aesthetics with the most advanced technology available.
With each Clever tap inspired by architecture, music, and even automotive design – creativity comes as standard. But just as important, the technological advances never stop; making Clever a forerunner when it comes to delivering eco-efficient solutions that achieve maximum water and cost savings.
For example, the Clever Econature System provides a sufficient water flow for daily use while saving approximately 50% in water consumption. And if more volume is needed, you only have to raise the handle to the maximum position.
As well as a 5-year warranty and WRAS flexible connectors, Clever taps also come with Thermolimit (temperature control), ColdOpen (anti-scald), Magnet (magnetic system fastening), Super Fix (stop movement) and Easy Fix (easy assembly without tools) functionality.
