As we continue to measure our impact through Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Product Declarations we have been discovering the best avenues for further improving the sustainability of our products and the effect they have on the environment.
This research provided insight which saw us moving our full range of Hyperion composite manufacturing to 100% renewable energy. And now, less than a year later, we are ecstatic to announce that we have done the same for our range of luxury vinyl tiles - Sisu LVT.
That’s right, Sisu LVT is now manufactured using 100% renewable wind energy!
Why Move to Wind Energy?
Our continued evaluation has shown that renewable energy offers substantial advantages to the overall environmental impact of a product's lifetime - while this is news to no one, we can now say with certainty the exact improvements that renewable energy provides.
What Impact Will This Have?
Moving our luxury vinyl tile production over to renewable wind energy accounts for a 19.4% improvement in carbon dioxide equivalent emissions across the supply chain and its lifetime for our 4mm Click LVT and an 22.6% improvement for 2.5mm Dryback LVT.
As we optimize the sustainability of our products it becomes more and more difficult to make significant gains, so a 10% improvement is pretty huge. But we won’t be stopping there...
EnviroBuild aims to provide you with the most environmentally friendly solutions on the market without sacrificing performance. We will continue to analyse the data we have collected on our products and look for ways that we can reduce the overall carbon footprint of EnviroBuild.
This could mean more recycled content in our products, moving more of our manufacturing over to renewable energy or some other method of sustainable living. If you don’t know much about what we do here, check out our environmental pledge.
