Environmental Compatibility

If you receive gratefully, you give gratefully

Nature provides us with a wonderful raw material that has superb thermal and climate-regulating qualities. Out of gratitude, we see ourselves indebted to treat nature and the environment with utmost respect while preserving them so we can pass them and their benefits on to our next generations.

A renewable raw material

The use of renewable natural raw materials such as wood is very beneficial to people and the environment, as it conserves our natural resources and the Earth’s animal and plant kingdoms. But perhaps most significant might be the contribution to climate protection by reducing our carbon footprint. During their lifespans, trees assimilate and process the same amount of CO2 they release back into environment when they decompose or are used as fuel. No additional CO2 discharges into the atmosphere – just the amount assimilated, meaning it is carbon neutral, unlike products made using fossil fuels, synthetic materials and complex manufacturing processes! 

 

 

Upholding our responsibility to Nature

The raw materials for every GUTEX wood fibreboard comes solely from wood harvested and grown using sustainable forestry management practices or from other controlled sources as per PEFC and FSC® standards.

Our products comply with very high biological safety standards, which our natureplus quality seal acknowledges. For the sake of transparency and to quantify the extent of GUTEX insulation products’ environmental compatibility, we have applied for and received Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) pursuant to ISO 14025 for our products. Issued and validated by the Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V., a certified institute in Germany, the declarations spell out the specific environmental compatibility and impact of products over the course of their life cycles.

Our dry manufacturing line employs an innovative dry technique that is significantly more environment-friendly than the conventional wet process and requires 40 % less energy per manufactured metric tonne! And both the wet and dry processes use the absolute minimum on additives.
