BOCCHI ANNOUNCES RECOMMITMENT TO CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY IN 2021

02.22.2021 - Press Releases

ALPHARETTA, GA – BOCCHI recently announced its recommitment to corporate sustainability, which includes previous best practices that aim to serve the environment and is aiming to create zero waste during production. 

 

“Sustainable processes and the use of materials that benefit the planet have always been the core of who we are and what we do at BOCCHI,” said Akgun Seckiner, Chief Executive Officer at BOCCHI. “Everyone faced unique challenges in 2020, and we found it important to recommit to and renew our best practices, in a way that continues to benefit both our customers and the environment.”

 

At the forefront of BOCCHI’s efforts to remain sustainable are the 100% recyclable materials used to make their heritage product, fireclay Apron Front sinks. Any unfinished, unfired material can be repurposed into new products, resulting in zero waste. In the United States, select industrial landfills will accept customers’ old sinks to be recycled, and in the company’s home country of Turkey, sinks are repurposed into road construction material. In addition, BOCCHI requires that their production process yields zero hazardous waste.  

 

To better serve customers in their homes, all BOCCHI products are created using high-pressure casting and electrostatic glazing, resulting in easy-to-clean, bacteria resistant appliances that do not require the use of harsh chemical cleaning products. BOCCHI’s production process utilizes kilns that better manage the output of energy, rather than the traditional method of appliance production. 

 

“We take our materials straight from the earth when we’re mining the fireclay for our sinks,” said Seckiner. “BOCCHI makes it a priority to give back to the environment what we’ve taken, leaving it in a better place than when we started.”
