Forster pride themselves on the energy efficient production of their stainless steel profiles, with their website stating a quote from the Steel Information in Dusseldorf: “Through its diverse fields of application, steel makes a valuable contribution to environment and climate protection, since no other metal is manufactured so environmentally compatible as steel. Furthermore, a closed recycling loop exists. Steel can be recycled completely and as often as required without any loss in quality. This saves resources and energy.”
