BOAVISTA Windows gets ZERO CARBON certification
Boavista Windows obtained the Zero Carbon Certification awarded by Sociedade Ponto Verde. This certification attests that Boavista Windows has monitored, reduced and offset greenhouse gas emissions from its activity over the last year and presented a Neutral carbon footprint.
In order to obtain this certification, a complete analysis of the company activity was carried out at the same time as the emissions and consumption of resources resulting from the company's activity were quantified according to the rigorous calculation methodology "The Greenhouse Gas Protocol". The compensation of GHG emissions is made through the planting of trees of indigenous or naturalized species, in national territory, according to the verified emissions, which contributes to the management and valorisation of the Portuguese forest. According to Francisco Branco, CEO of BOAVISTA "it is up to companies to take their share of responsibility for the defense of the planet and at BOAVISTA we take our part very seriously. We are all responsible for leaving the planet better than we have found it and businesses should be no exception " BOAVISTA’s values are transmitted both in its products and in its processes. The durability of fiberglass windows, their performance and the low energy consumption of their production are based on the value of sustainability. Making a difference is a lot easier than it sounds. In each company or in each home we can choose not to use products that we know harm the environment. For example, by reducing the amount of GHG emissions using more public transport as opposed to using private cars, or, as in BOAVISTA, abandoning the use of plastics on a daily basis. BOAVISTA, the first brand in Europe to develop fiberglass window systems, gives another step in the sustainability of its activity.
New project by César Machado Moreira with BOAVISTA Windows

BOAVISTA delivers a project in Rua Sá da Bandeira, in the heart of Porto
The busy street of Sá da Bandeira, in Porto, received another renovated building with BOAVISTA Windows.
This project is located downtown Porto, one of the most important areas of the city, where many inhabitants, tourists and workers circulate frequently. Inevitably it is an area where we find high levels of noise both day and night. It is in areas like this that the new results obtained regarding the sound insulation capacity of the BOAVISTA windows stand out. These systems allow you to create a space where you can work without distractions and get quality rest. The characteristics of fibreglass also make it possible to use large spans without compromising the acoustic and thermal insulation of the building. Perfect for projects where the facades aim at the entrance of a lot of light.

Architect- Portal da Construção Sustentável
"My experience with BOAVISTA Windows has been very positive. The first contact I had was on a visit to my office to get to know their fibreglass systems. In no time an opportunity came to use their systems as a good alternative to aluminium, economically and technically. The design support and its installation took place was problem free."
"Working in the field of doors and windows for more than 20 years we were more than happy to meet the innovative and future orientated window systems of BOAVISTA and all people behind. Already knowing the excellent technical Portuguese expertise for 16 years we are looking forward to introduce Boavista in the German, Austrian and Swiss market, to introduce the sustainable ideas to private and public customers, to architects and project planners."
