Vent-Axia Shows ‘Sustainable is Attainable’


Vent-Axia is sharing how it is taking measurable actions to deliver healthy indoor air sustainably which in turn is helping its own customers make sustainable attainable. With the construction industry working hard to meet Net-Zero targets by 2050 it is important the whole supply chain works together to reduce carbon emissions which means specifiers working with suppliers that are reducing their own carbon footprint. Vent-Axia is committed to helping make sustainable attainable for its customers by taking action to reduce its environmental impact as part of a group wide initiative. These actions have resulted in significant improvements to help the company meet its environmental goals including eliminating plastic blister packs and single use poly bags from its supply chain; recycling 180 tonnes of cardboard; using recycled materials from 63,000 old fridges and designing efficiency and modularity into its products to lower energy usage and reduce landfill waste.




As a strategy to reduce its environmental impact, Vent-Axia has introduced its ‘3 pillars of sustainability’:

  • Plastic – reduce and recycle
  • Environmental - initiatives to reduce impact on the environment
  • Energy efficient products - that reduce energy use.




By focusing on these key areas, the company has bought about real measurable change and is the next stage in Vent-Axia’s environmental journey. In 2016 the company achieved the internationally recognised ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification for its Crawley manufacturing facilities. This followed the company completing its reshoring of the balance of its domestic fan manufacturing, from China back to the UK in 2013, a project that reduced carbon emission by 15 tonnes a year. Meanwhile, since the company’s inception in 1936 it has been leading the way in energy efficient ventilation design, with its first fan containing an energy saving DC motor, and in 2010 Vent-Axia launching its Lo-Carbon range of fans to further drive energy efficient ventilation.


“Sustainability is about finding solutions. From energy usage and climate change to air quality and future lifestyles, these are the areas where we can have the biggest positive impacts. We’re focussing on how we can improve lives through the impact of our products, our impact on the planet and our impact on our people”, said Lena Hebestreit, Marketing Manager at Vent-Axia. “We want to show that being sustainable is attainable, not only for us but for the wider industry. We’re on a sustainable journey towards reaching net-zero and Vent-Axia is taking real, quantifiable actions to achieve this. Vent-Axia is committed to helping all its customers on their net-zero journey including social housing and new build customers where regulation and targets are swiftly driving change - helping make sustainable attainable.”




With 85 years of ventilation experience, Vent-Axia is committed to improving indoor air quality and to reducing its environmental impact in line with its ‘3 pillars of sustainability’. The company is keen to help its customers on their journey to reduce their environmental impact too and help them make sustainable attainable.
