We are the first interior designers to receive 4 stars from the CSR Register. Companies that are registered in the CSR Register contribute to the future sustainability of the Netherlands. They strive for transparency, impact and good CSR management and are measured on this. Our CSR achievements and impact stories are available for everyone to read in the CSR Register.
We are the front runner in the field of interior designing within CSR Netherlands. As a leader in the field of sustainability, we have a lot of knowledge and experience in the field of Cradle to Cradle, FSC®, PEFC, BREEAM and WELL projects.
Coors is an outright leader when it comes to circular business. Coors is constantly looking for ways to reduce its material consumption and waste streams and to increase the percentage of reuse.
Coors is investing heavily in more sustainable business practices, and a large part of our fleet is electric. In addition, all our office supplies and work clothing are sustainable. We have 583 solar panels on our roof that generate 50% of our energy needs. We have state-of-the-art machinery that enables us to produce in a sustainable way.
For example, we reduce the use of plate material by “nesting” instead of sawing. This way we prevent up to 20% waste of plate material.
We want to lead the way. So, it’s not a surprise our mission is to pass on our planet, with innovations in responsible interior solutions, to future generations in a healthier and more sustainable way.
Our mission is not just talk, which is something Coors proves in practice every day. Every client Coors engages with for a new interior, we ask the same question: What materials does your current interior consist of? In what quantities?
WUsing our ‘material circularity indicator’, we make an inventory of the existing interior of the building to see what we can reuse and how.
We have a lot of experience with circular interior design. The municipal office of Venlo, for example, was furnished by Coors Cradle to Cradle. In any case, we offer our clients a design using sustainable materials. But at Coors, we go further and introduce circular elements to the interiors, such as disassembled furniture. Promoting our circular product line WellSign is part of that.
We can do so much in the Netherlands: turn concrete into concrete again, use organic-based panels as a substitute for chipboard. Almost anything is technically possible. But we do need to come up with a good earning model for residual materials. The negative image of second-hand products should be a thing of the past. It is important that the good examples, the municipal office of Venlo as well as the interiors of the UWV and the LocHal in Tilburg, for example, are given a platform. Coors is proud of the interior that was completed for WTC Utrecht in accordance with WELL using sustainable materials including FSC®, PEFC and Breeam Excellent.
For the municipality of Amsterdam, we realized an interior according to the principles of RAU, which was fully circular. We like to share the experience we gained on these projects with our clients in order to share knowledge and make interiors even more sustainable.
By initiating innovations in the field of circular interior solutions, we pass on our planet to future generations in a healthier and more sustainable way. We are committed, knowledgeable, creative and leading the way. Our core values, integrity and expertise, are always visible in our actions. With a passion for our profession, we are a guide for our clients and a total solution provider in realizing sustainable interior design ambitions.
CO2 Performance Ladder
Coors is an outright leader when it comes to circular business. Coors is constantly looking for ways to reduce its material consumption and waste streams and to increase the percentage of reuse. In addition, Coors is investing heavily in more sustainable business operations: a large part of our fleet is electric. In addition, all our office supplies and work clothing are sustainable. There are 583 solar panels on our roof, which provide a large part of our energy needs.
We make our ambitions in the field of sustainability transparent with the CO2 performance ladder level 3, in accordance with the CO2 Performance Ladder of the Foundation for Climate Friendly Procurement and Business (in Dutch: SKAO).
This allows Coors to remain at the forefront of the mission to pass on our planet to future generations in a healthier and more sustainable way.
The CO2 Performance Ladder is an instrument that helps Coors reduce CO2. Within our business operations, in projects and in the chain, there is still much room for improvement in terms of energy savings, the efficient use of materials and the use of sustainable energy. The CO2 Performance Ladder is the appropriate instrument for this.
The CO2 Performance Ladder does not work with regulations for production methods or product specifications, but creates space for creativity and innovation in business and products. The ambition is for companies that get certified according to the ladder will see this as an investment that immediately pays off in terms of lower energy costs, material savings and innovation gains.
In developing the CO2 Performance Ladder, Coors has opted for two important principles:
- Maximum focus on own initiative, practical results and innovation;
- Minimal burden and hindrance of the company by rules and regulations.
The purpose of the CO2 Performance Ladder in Coors’ business operations is to:
- Stimulate to know our own CO2 emissions – and those of our suppliers;
- Continuously search for new opportunities to reduce emissions resulting from our business operations;
- Stimulate the actual implementation of measures;
- Share the acquired knowledge transparently with our stakeholders;
- Actively search, together with colleagues, suppliers, clients and other chain partners, for opportunities to jointly reduce emissions.
The graphs below show Coors’ energy consumption and CO2 emissions. A result we are proud of!
