Crafting Sustainable Living
Making urban spaces more livable and more sustainable
The foundation for more sustainable living
Did you know that at least 40 percent of global energy consumption and over a third of greenhouse gas emissions can be attributed to buildings? With global trends such as urbanization, sustainability, climate change and limited fossil resources on the rise, there is a need to provide more energy-efficient housing.
Another important building block for more eco-friendly housing is high-performance, cost-efficient insulation. Our MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate) is climate neutral attributed via mass-balance approach and significantly reduces the embodied carbon of a building as well as the energy consumption over the building's lifecycle. (The “climate neutral” attribute is the result of a partial life cycle assessment covering the product cycle from gradle to gate.)
And with innovative ideas and connections to partners all over the world, we can not only make urban spaces more livable but even create new business opportunities and additional sources of income for people in underserved markets.
We want and need to be aware of how our lifestyle choices impact the world around us and find solutions for everyone to live better. With our materials we’re taking the first step in harnessing ideas and innovations towards sustainability. But as it often is in life: we can’t do it alone. That’s why we need partners, thought leaders and everyone who wants to make a change to join in and to think in circles and to push for more sustainable living.
