We collaborate with organizations, suppliers and customers in our environmental work. We also work closely with the authorities, interest groups and specialist communities in order to generate environmental improvements in a long-term perspective.

We were also one of the first companies in Norway that quality assured our environment work through EPD - a document that summarizes an environmental profile to a finished product in a standardized and objective way. EPD stands for Environmental Product Declaration. EPD Norway is part of the ECO Platform.

Protan's products are manufactured in Norway with energy from Norwegian hydro power and we are certified pursuant to ISO 9001 quality systems and ISO 14001 environmental management systems.  Protan is an active participant in the European RoofCollect ­environmental organization, which collects and recirculates materials.

Protan's products are welded with hot air without using gas or open flames. This is the most environmentally-friendly welding technique.
