How We Made Manufacturing More Environmentally Friendly

 

It is one thing for a company to be an innovator with the products it is developing, but it is another thing to be an innovator and trendsetter in sustainability. Clarus is a company that has strived for and excelled in both. On today’s episode of Glass is in Session, we sat back down with Jamie-Clare de la Chapelle, Clarus’ resident “LEED expert” and Marketing Content & Sustainability Specialist, who unpacks the journey toward sustainability for the company.

De la Chapelle has learned a lot through her years, coming from an environmental non-profit, to a construction firm, and finally landing at Clarus. At each of her positions, she saw more and more how sustainable measures are driving industries to adapt and rethink their products. At Clarus, she was quickly introduced to the marketing side of how certifications are sold, and what it means to customers that Clarus is a sustainable manufacturer.

“You have to move forward in a better manner than you were before,” she said, and that’s not only been true for her, but for her work at Clarus and the company’s journey to becoming LEED certified.

Clarus has always been an innovator of glassboards, starting years ago with flush glassboards and glass that supports hardware, and becoming LEED certified was a big part of continuing that innovation. Currently it is the only glassboard company in the world to hold a LEED certification with environmentally sustainable products. The measures are applied not only to the products themselves but the processes designed to make them, like the closed-loop recycling machine that recycles water used to give glass baths.

Give this podcast a listen to hear de la Chapelle explain the toughest road blocks are to going green, why local partnerships are the answer, and a feel for why Clarus is so devoted to their environmentally conscious mission.
