In 2009, Camfil Farr embarked on a mission to become the first sustainable air filtration company in the world, launching an internal program to achieve this objective and publishing its third corporate sustainability report on a voluntary basis.

Camfil Farr took these initiatives because of its belief in sustainability. The company’s efforts in this area confirm what Camfil Farr has been doing for almost half a century: greening the operations of customers by providing air filtration products with the lowest energy consumption and life cycle costs while improving the environment, human health and productivity.

"Sustainable air filtration solutions are our contribution to society"

Alan O'Connel

Camfil Farr group CEO

In 2010, Camfil Farr "Green products" range ie, the most energy efficient solutions accounts for 67% of the group sales in buildings ventilation systems applications. This share has grown 8% since 2007.  Approximately 21% of sales volumes have been converted to the most sustainable products in Camfil Farr's catalogue, creating healthier and more energy efficient indoor environments.

A European roadshow initiative to spread the message

Clean air is one of the most essential product on the planet and we deliver it all over the world. Do people have a right to clean air? We think so. We are now taking this message on the road all over Europe. The purpose is to inform policy makers, politicians, decision makers and the general public about the importance of a better integration of air quality in building energy efficiency regulations. www.camfilfarr.com/Roadshow

Reward of continuous improvement of operations.

Energy efficiency in operations and workers safety are two important foundations of the Camfilcairing program that has been effectively integrated into daily management. 

In 2010 CamfilFarr was the first company in the United Kingdom to reach the new Kitermark certification program of Energy Management System,  according to EN 16001 from BSI, soon followed by one of the French facility.

Safety has been a focus for improvement for several years. As a result, work lost days to work-related injuries dropped by 40% on average for the entire group, (up to 75%) the last two years.
