ASSA ABLOY Awarded Vizient Environmentally Preferred Supplier Designation

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — ASSA ABLOY announces it has been designated as an Environmentally Preferred Vizient-awarded Supplier.

Vizient is said to be the largest member-driven healthcare performance improvement company in the country. Helping hospitals and clinics reach their building performance and sustainability goals is a key focus of Vizient’s Environmentally Preferred Sourcing (EPS) program.

Vizient works with hospital members and providers to reduce harmful human and environmental health impacts while maintaining quality and affordability. As part of the Vizient EPS program, participating manufacturers like ASSA ABLOY must provide a list of products that meet pre-defined environmentally preferred standards and specific third-party certifications to indicate independent auditing of environmental standards.

“ASSA ABLOY is proud to be designated an Environmentally Preferred Vizient-awarded Supplier and excited to offer help to healthcare organizations in meeting their sustainability needs through this contract,” says Amy Musanti, sustainability director, ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions Americas. “For healthcare, we’re already able to equip facilities with security, access control and energy-efficient door solutions that not only better protect the safety and privacy of patients, providers, and visitors but also help reduce power consumption, noise levels, and the spread of germs.”

As healthcare facilities strive to meet sustainability goals, every aspect of a building becomes crucial — ASSA ABLOY’s comprehensive range of sustainable door opening products make this goal a reality, according to the company.

Whether the project aims to achieve LEED or WELL certification, Net Zero or the Living Building Challenge, ASSA ABLOY says it has a product solution that can contribute to the success in meeting those goals.

“Within healthcare and beyond, sustainability is vital to economic and industrial development, and it’s a top priority for ASSA ABLOY,” adds Musanti. “The EPS designation will further enhance our ability to learn even more about what our healthcare system customers face and need every day.”
