New Product Announcement: Carbon-Neutral Materials
Construction materials manufacturer MAPEI Corporation recently introduced a new family of carbon-neutral products.
According to the emailed release, specifiers, contractors and homeowners can use these materials to fully offset CO2 throughout their entire life cycle.
“For MAPEI, our carbon-neutral status is achieved by calculating the product’s carbon footprint an reducing it to zero through a combination of efficiency measures in-house, as well as through the acquisition of certified carbon credits in support of renewable energy and forestry protection projects,” said Brittany Storm, Sustainability Manager.
“We understand that being carbon neutral is not enough, this is just the start, we’re looking at our products and in our facilities themselves to reduce our carbon emissions.”
The new products include:
“MAPEI’s carbon-neutral product family is one of many of our sustainable offerings, which include a variety of health and environmental certifications, and is the latest offering in our long-ranging efforts to be good shepherds of the environment,” explained Luigi Di Geso, President and CEO of MAPEI Corporation.
“Now, by using CO2 offsets through renewable energy and reforestation projects, the MAPEI family of carbon-neutral products offers our customers a way to make a contribution to the well-being of the environment, the planet and the future, while still providing the strength and durability for which MAPEI is so well known.”
“We know carbon neutral isn’t enough and that we need to continually examine our products and processes to further reduce our impacts. Close attention is paid to our Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs), Global Warming Potentials (GWPs) and how we can further improve our impacts on the environment,” Storm explained.
