To us, sustainability means meeting the needs of the current generation without jeopardizing future generations' ability to meet their own needs. That is why it is at the heart of our business philosophy.
We are committed not only to providing innovative and sustainable flooring solutions, but also to responsibly using our planet's resources throughout the manufacturing process to offset our carbon footprint.
Our floors can remain in situ where other shorter life-cycle floors need to be replaced due to wear and tear.
In this way our floors avoid the uplift, removal and disposal of the worn out floor finish as well as the manufacturing process involved with producing replacement flooring or the need for a repeat installation.
End-of-life Flowcrete products can be removed as non-hazardous waste or floored over.
We monitor all of our waste streams in order to reduce the ever-increasing burden on landfills while also ensuring the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly disposal method is used.
This means that we reintroduce factory waste into our manufacturing processes whenever possible or seek to eliminate waste at the source.
By incorporating reusable UN Certified intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) into our despatch processes, we reduce our fuel consumption as well as the amount of packaging waste and non-reusable metal containers that are sent to landfill after our products are delivered to site.
Our flooring technologies have been predominantly water-based and solvent-free for over a decade, significantly reducing the emission of any harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to the atmosphere during installation.
