ECOLOGICAL RESPONSIBILITY

DE LA FONTAINE has adopted ecological principles aimed to consume less, pollute little and recycle more. Here are some examples of our commitments:

  • LEED v4 Certification coming soon. Please contact the Customer service for any LEED-related information.
  • 100% recycling of steel waste
  • Recycling of production waste
  • Recycling of wood transport pallets

 

RECYCLED CONTENT

The total recycled content of our galvannealed steel is approximately 89.7%.

This includes:

  • A total post-consumer content of 50.6%
  • A total post-industrial content of 33.3%
  • The remaining 5.8% is comprised of home scrap.

The total recycled content of our stainless steel is over 85%. However, the mill makes no distinction as to the origin of the scrap.
