ASB – more than just building four walls!
What can a squash company do to save our environment? ASB’s product philosophy has been “green” since the company was founded!
Ever since ASB introduced the first ASB System Court in 1976 to the squash community, the company’s philosophy has been to combine materials with minimal impact on the environmental with long life products of the best quality. As this task became more and more important over recent years, ASB increased their effort to optimize the standard of production.
It was in 1992 that the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development – the Earth Summit – was held in Rio de Janeiro. One year later the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Founding Assembly was held in Toronto, Canada. For 21 years, the FSC set new standards and standing for environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable forest management.
“We have a strong commitment to constantly update and develop our products to ensure we have the most efficient and long lasting solutions for our clients. This commitment is for the benefit of the environment and for the customers”, ASB Squash CEO Jiri Grulich said.
ASB founder Horst Babinsky added: “In the sourcing process we have always considered this fact and are using FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified materials for our ASB System Courts. Only on a healthy planet can healthy people play our healthy sport.”
