DeVere’s Statement on Sustainability

Follow the “Twelve Principles of Green Chemistry” to ensure the safety and health of all employees, customers, and end-users of our products while promoting sustainability and environmentally friendly practices throughout our business.

To this end, every new product and revision is evaluated according to a sustainability and environmental fate checklist. We are currently working to integrate a sustainability program with the consumables we purchase. When available without a decline in product quality, we always buy and use consumables made from mostly post-consumer material.

We also make efforts to buy the most concentrated raw materials possible. This limits the storage space required and the environmental and financial impact of large inbound shipments. We work with distribution partners to optimize the shipments, leaving our facilities to minimize the use of fossil fuels during transport.

DeVere’s dedication to making products as concentrated as possible

Power_and_waterSaving electricity: In 2012, DeVere invested in a complete electrical overhaul of their main manufacturing facility. The overhaul included a new transformer and new lighting throughout the offices, warehouses, and production areas.

Saving water: In 2014, DeVere rebuilt the influent water treatment and conveyance systems throughout the liquid product production area. This improvement not only made production faster but also nearly eliminated water waste and optimized clean-out between batches.

Reducing waste: In 2019, DeVere rebuilt the effluent systems to reduce waste to less than the average use of four households. DeVere has also increased recycling efforts and is working toward sending more to recycling facilities than landfills.

Reducing environmental impact: In 2023, DeVere stopped sending plant effluent into residential or municipal waste systems. Currently, 100% of the small amount of chemical waste created in our processing environment is shipped to a processing facility where it is converted to usable products.

GreenSealCertThese products have been improved over the years to become better for the environment. Pure Clean is Green Seal Certified meaning that it meets the Green Seal Standard for Cleaning Products for Industrial and Institutional use, based on its reduced human and environmental toxicity and reduced volatile organic compound content.

The “green” products and Pine Cleaner meet or exceed the requirements set forth by multiple environmental impact certifying agencies.

The Security Floor® products reduce the waste and water required by door foamers and the QAC released into the environment by all other entryway control products. Security Floor Treatment is registered organic, QAC-free, and reduces plant effluent streams’ biological oxygen demand and chemical oxygen demand.
