Sisu LVT Manufactured With 100% Renewable Wind Energy
We are very proud to announce that Sisu LVT is now fully manufactured and produced using wind energy. From mining all the way to factory production.
Sisu LVT is Manufactured using 100% Renewable Wind Energy
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. After successfully moving our full range of Hyperion composite manufacturing to 100% renewable energy. We are ecstatic to announce that we have done the same for our range of luxury vinyl tiles - Sisu LVT.
Why Move to Wind Energy?
Our continued evaluation showed that manufacturing with grid electricity was easily the largest contributor to the Global Warming Potential of certain products. It was clear that moving manufacturing to renewable energy would be the most effective way to reduce the embodied carbon of Sisu LVT. Manufacturing using renewable energy offers substantial advantages to the overall environmental impact of a product's lifetime and has proven to be a fantastic way to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of Sisu LVT.
What Impact Will This Have?
Moving our luxury vinyl tile production over to renewable wind energy has allowed us to significantly reduce the carbon emission of both our Sisu Click LVT and Sisu Dryback.
Changing our Sisu Click LVT to 100% renewable wind energy has allowed us to reduce our carbon dioxide equivalent emissions across the supply chain and its lifetime by 21.23%. Whilst swapping our Sisu Dryback LVT to 100% renewable wind energy has allowed us to reduce our carbon dioxide equivalent emissions across the supply chain and its lifetime by 22.34%.
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.
