Sustainability

Sustainability has always been a leading principle at ISECO. This comes alive in all company aspects: products, technology, buildings and production methods.

ISECO optimalises its production process continuously  to reach a minimum of waste. They use high quality recycled materials for the production. Where plastic is inevitable, they use recycled plastic. Their products have a long life. ISECO thermocontact works with heating plates that are extremely energy efficient, with a minimum of energy use as result.

Carbofresh™ is a natural cooling system, cooling with an almost zero CO2 footprint with 100% recycled CO2. In the 4All Meals concept where the Serelis meal distribution cart is used,  meal waste was reduced from 40% to 2%.
