Durability

Sustainability is integrated in our business strategy and working methods. Kontent Structures has been working for many years from Bodegraven and Alphen aan den Rijn as a producer and service provider for temporary spaces through professional tent constructions, with attention for the client and the rural environment in which we operate.

In the past decade, sustainability has been given a central place within the organization and we constantly strive for more sustainable solutions such as efficient building techniques, sustainable production methods and innovative methods for cleaning our material and equipment.

Compliance with all laws and environmental regulations is self-evident within our total business operations. We strive to relieve the environment, save natural resources and thereby meet the high expectations of our customers. Recycling plays an important role in this. The water from our marquee – tarpaulin washing machine is recycled and strictly environmentally friendly cleaning products are used. Through continuous innovation of our tent materials and floor systems, we are constantly working on saving weight and endurance. With the specific assembly of our truck combinations and internally developed transport systems, the loading volume and number of transport movements are kept to a minimum, with the additional aim that by 2022 our commercial vehicle fleet will consist of 100% vehicles with a EURO 6 emission standard. When choosing our materials and applied working methods, we ensure that they are as environmentally friendly as possible, and efficient use of natural resources is central.
