Specialist sustainability merchant EnviroBuild has won Green ‘Circular Economy’ Business of the Year at the West London Business Awards 2021.
James Brueton, the co-founder of EnviroBuild said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won Green ‘Circular Economy’ Business of the Year. At EnviroBuild, we’ve made sustainability the core of our business model and we are so happy to have been recognised. We have some big plans coming up and sustainability is the key driver towards them, from recent moves such as working with a more sustainable logistics partner, to designing new products and ensuring that all of our composite products are produced using 100% renewable energy.”
EnviroBuild’s mission is to redress the construction industry’s carbon footprint. It looks for practical ways to improve both their energy usage and input materials to lessen the need for materials traditionally used in the industry.
Sustainable products offered by the company include: EnviroBuild Manticore Lumber is a substitute for wood made entirely from recycled plastic. Through this, plastic that would never have been usable via standard recycling processes can be repurposed – the kind of circular product in which the company takes pride.
The company’s porcelain paving, which is created using renewable sources, contains 40% recycled material.
EnviroBuild’s Hyperion decking contains 90% recycled material, uses 100% renewable energy to power the manufacturing process and has a long use life which all gives it a smaller carbon footprint than traditional decking, as shown by a recent Life Cycle Assessment, making it clear that sustainable materials can have a big impact.
