Products made from composite materials are characterized by their high durability and great longevity, while having a relatively low environmental impact during their lifecycle; outperforming steel, concrete or wood by three or even four times. This has been proven time and time again by various independent researches and are calculated over the material’s entire lifecycle; from the first raw material up to the end product.
As an organization that processes these raw materials into the end products, we form an important shackle in this lifecycle. By carrying out our production processes as efficiently as possible and proactively limiting our waste production (both in terms of materials and energy) we contribute to decrease the environmental footprint of composite materials even further.
In order to obtain clear insights in our performance and monitor our results continuously, we use the Environment Barometer made available by the Stimular Foundation. This program actively looks for opportunities to reduce energy consumption and waste production. Of course this also offers the extra benefit of lowering our internal costs, which means that our customers can benefit from lower prices, while they can rest assured that our environmental performance is excellent and always keeps improving.
