Sustainable Products

PermaRock systems provide an excellent opportunity to reduce carbon emissions in buildings, however, we also realise the important part we play in protecting our environment, which is why we try to minimise our carbon footprint wherever possible – from the sourcing of materials, our manufacturing processes, to the application and long term impact of our products.

We have developed and implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS), certificated to BS EN ISO 14001, which has enabled us to identify our environmental impacts and highlight areas where improvements can be made to our processes and practices.

When specifying our products you can be confident that the manufacturing and supply of our systems has been developed to have minimal environmental impacts.

 

Energy Saving

Energy saving is one of the easiest ways to reduce carbon emissions and using PermaRock external wall insulation systems provides an opportunity to add high levels of insulation to the exterior façade of both new build and refurbishment projects, assisting greatly with the energy efficient running of buildings.

Sustainability

With accredited life-spans of 30 years, all of our external wall insulation systems are durable, long lasting and low maintenance, thus minimising whole life costs.

Supply Chain

Key suppliers including raw material suppliers, waste collectors, waste recycling contractors and transport companies are monitored, assessed and reviewed on a regular basis for their environmental performance to ensure the most commercially sustainable components and services are utilised within our products and services.

Materials

We source our raw materials from sustainable sources wherever possible and waste from the manufacture of our base coats and adhesives are reformulated back into the manufacturing process. All PermaRock insulation boards are CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) and HCFC (hydrochlorofluorocarbons) free, have zero ozone depletion potential (zero-ODP) and low to zero global warming potential (GWP).

Waste Management

Whether it is product packaging or packing for transport to site, we utilise the minimal amount of material. Material packaging is recycled or re-utilised wherever possible and we actively liaise with installers and project teams to produce improved workable solutions in relation to the on-site waste and recycling generated from our products.

Recycling

A facility is available for the collection and recycling of uncontaminated, ‘cut-off’ and unused insulation materials where required. We also actively recycle many waste products within our offices and manufacturing processes, having implemented many procedures to reduce the amount of waste produced.
