Newport Brass is committed to the principals of Sustainability as we strive to deliver the highest quality products, incorporating environmentally sound processes into the manufacturing of products that care for the environment.
Newport Brass is committed to a Planet Protection Promise: to pursue industry leading environmental performance in our products, services and operations to deliver exceptional value for our customers. We have taken a holistic approach to sustainability, designing products with the lowest environmental impact; 1.5 gpm faucets, low lead content and low emissions.
We use materials and methods that replenish more rapidly than other materials; soy inks, chemical water treatment and low cure temperatures. Utilizing energy-saving methods in manufacturing, we reduce emissions, recycle materials, optimize resources, and minimize waste.
The result is well-made, high quality products using the best methods for the least environmental impact; a collaborative reduction of our corporate carbon footprint.
Nearly every lavatory faucet we make is Water Sense qualified and meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) criteria for water efficiency and performance with integrated 1.5 gpm aerators.
Newport Brass faucets deliver OVER 30% water savings over traditional 2.2 gpm faucets.
An ongoing Green Brand campaign from Newport Brass includes a customer awareness program, customer service training, and employee awareness and engagement efforts.
Newport Brass' Green Brand program includes the following initiatives:
- A low emissions finish process — a low cure temperature creates lower CO2 emissions
- Hazardous waste reduction — a 96% reduction in 3 years
- An energy lighting retrofit project — designed to offset the negative consequences of CO2
- IAPMO certification for low lead — all products are compliant with the new levels mandated in CA and VT
- WaterSense certification for 1.5 gpm low flow faucets
