Envirobuild switches to wind energy for all Hyperion Composite Decking
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, explains, ‘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 can 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.
