- Duravit introduces sustainability into the bathroom; Copyright Constantin Mayer
Bathroom supplier Duravit now joined the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA). The non-profit organisation is a full member of the World Green Building Council and the official certification body of buildings under the Green Star SA Rating System. GBCSA aims to ensure, that all certified constructions are built and operated in an environmentally sustainable way.
Duravit and the organisation complement each other very well. Committed to the environment, the bathroom supplier is certified in accordance with ISO 14001 and thus meets international environmental-management requirements. As sustainability criteria are becoming increasingly important, higher requirements are also being made of the materials and technologies used. In addition to design and utility, the careful use of resources is crucial, both in terms of concept and production.
This is why Duravit continues to invest in research and development. Toilets with a low water consumption of 4.5 litres, the Architec Dry waterless urinal and low-energy LED lights are just a few examples of how Duravit introduces sustainability into the bathroom. Karen Robyn, General Manager Duravit South Africa: “For Duravit, thinking and acting sustainably means actively taking responsibility. We are proud being a member of the GBCSA.”
