CARBON NEUTRAL PRODUCTION

We are proud to mention that the production of Keller kitchens is CO2 neutral. We have achieved this milestone by generating part of our electricity demand with solar panels. The remaining electricity demand is compensated by the purchasing of green electricity. We meet our heating demand by co-firing our wood waste in our special biomass installation. The remaining CO2 emissions are mitigated through partnerships with Trees for All and the Climate Neutral Group. Thanks to this additional mitigation, Keller Kitchens is officially carbon neutral..

ISO 9001: 2015 QUALITY MANAGEMENT

By obtaining the ISO 9001 certificate, Keller show that they continuously enhance and develop the quality standards. By visiting exhibitions and staying alert to trends, we signal the latest developments in time and translate these into our kitchen designs. By listening to the wishes of our stakeholders very closely, we also improve our services. For example, our customers attach great value to short delivery times. One of our quality improvements is that we have the NCS colours from our TREND Collection available at any time. This allows us to produce and deliver our kitchens faster. In addition, tailor-made requests undergo a thorough feasibility check before we produce them. In this way we limit the risk of errors and achieve the highest possible quality.

ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

ISO 14001 shows that the company can identify, prioritise, manage and improve environmental aspects in a systematic way. For years, the company have taken responsibility for the effects of our activities on the environment by using a carbon neutral production process and using less energy and raw materials by switching to sustainable alternatives; for example, by investing in two new carton packaging machines. As a result, the cardboard packaging is completely tailor-made and reducing cardboard waste. In addition, the machines use 85% less power than its predecessor.

The CSR performance ladder is based on the ISO 26000 guideline which manages the international guidelines for sustainability and combines it with stakeholder management and GRI (indicators & reporting). It tells a lot about the role outside of an organisation.
