Envirobuild switches to wind energy for all Hyperion Composite Decking
EnviroBuild has announced that, as of 2021, the entire Hyperion Composite range is now being produced using 100% renewable energy. EnviroBuild’s vision is to lead a sustainable revolution in the construction industry and the company has assured that all future production of decking, cladding and fencing will point to a much greener future.
The manufacture of Hyperion Composite materials is one of the largest components of energy requirement in the total supply chain. Previous efforts to reduce the environmental impact of each product started with the installation of solar panels on the factory site to help reduce the grid-based energy consumption. This was a welcome improvement, but there was still significant savings required to fully reduce production-based energy emissions.
James Brueton, the co-founder of EnviroBuild, said, “This is exciting progress for EnviroBuild as we’re consistently looking to improve the sustainability of our offering at every stage. This move to wind power will have a huge impact on what we’re able to provide for our customers, ensuring there doesn’t need to be a compromise between quality or sustainability.”
By moving to wind power, EnviroBuild will be going one step further in its efforts to reduce its environmental impact. The new changes guarantee that all production of composite decking, cladding and fencing will be running completely on renewable energy via Green Energy Certificates. After switching to renewable wind energy, Hyperion Decking will now produce the equivalent of 29.2% less carbon dioxide emissions across its lifetime.
This announcement is just one step in the journey towards a more sustainable future. EnviroBuild’s current Life Cycle Assessments, in which every stage of the supply chain is being analysed carefully, will continue to present new opportunities to improve and develop upon their already industry-leading sustainability. The continued work to identify further means for improving the company’s sustainability credentials will help to reduce the lifetime environmental impact of all EnviroBuild products.
Environmental Product Declarations for every sustainable decking, cladding and fencing product from the brand are expected to be published within the next few months. These documents, which will detail the total sustainable impact of each product in the Hyperion range, are part of EnviroBuild’s efforts towards more transparent reporting about their production processes.
By making this data available and pinpointing the areas where improvements have been made, they can be sure that the company is paving the way towards a more sustainable industry. Customers can feel confident knowing that no compromise has been made between quality or sustainability in producing good value materials for EnviroBuild products.
