Employees speak about sustainability
Besides the fact that it’s fantastic to work for a wonderful group of companies, it is also more than good that we at AVZ-Group included sustainability in our business strategy. Since I also try to do everything, I can in my private life to live as sustainably as possible and to have as little negative impact on the world as possible. I also want to implement this as much as possible within Smits Rolluiken en Zonwering and other AVZ-Group companies. After all, a better environment starts with yourself!
As an Industrial designer at AVZ-Group, I try to look at sustainability from a R&D perspective. The future needs more sustainable products and innovations, and we need to contribute to that future as well. As a part of the younger generation of Designers and Engineers, I find it very important to realize this future together.
As a Sustainability Manager I am very proud to work for AVZ-Group. Sustainability has always been part of my DNA and at the moment I work at a company where this subject is as important! Together we work on more sustainable products and are involved in a variety of projects to move towards a more sustainable future!
Stijn van der Aa
As sales employee at AVZ-Group, I like to contribute to a sustainable future. The first steps to realize this have already been taken through the various measures that have been implemented. The focus is now on changes within our organization, but in the end it would be nice if we could also involve our customers. I believe that together we can reduce our carbon footprint.

The department logistics makes an important contribution to the sustainability of our company. Residual waste, wood, cardboard and plastic have been separated for years. Cardboard and plastic are pressed into bales, so that their disposal requires less transport (pollution). We no longer use plastic filling material when packing in boxes. We had new heaters installed for the heating of the warehouse. These have a more efficient combustion and are easier to adjust. All fluorescent fixtures have been replaced by LED, resulting in more than 30% savings on electricity. The overhead doors are equipped with remote controls so that they are open for less time and therefore less heat is lost. We will continue to look for opportunities to achieve sustainability, efficiency and cost reduction!
