Our footprint – making a sustainable difference

Nouwens Carpets understands that taking care now creates a better future for all, and by being sustainable, we contribute to a thriving country and economy for future generations.

In recognition of this, Nouwens has, in the last few years, taken steps towards responsible corporate citizenship by doing the following:

  • Becoming a member of the Green Building Council of South Africa, and subscribing to its principles
  • Submitting its products for vigorous VOC testing to ensure that harmful emissions are significantly reduced
  • Implementing a more streamlined and efficient ERP system with the introduction of SAP
  • Remaining abreast of international trends by visiting global trade-shows and tapping into best practices that support sustainability
  • Addressing basic issues of energy conservation and waste control at all levels
  • Supporting the community in which it operates and uplifting the lives of over 3000 children daily through the Harrismith based Maluti Child Care Project
