Who we are
Neolith®, a Carbon Neutral Company
The market-leading surfacing brand is now carbon neutral. By compensating its carbon footprint, Neolith® stopped releasing gate-to-gate CO2 emissions in 2019.
One of the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly materials on the Market
To attain the highly-prized carbon neutral status Neolith® followed the internationally recognized Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG) and implemented a dynamic, innovationled sustainability strategy coupled with tactical, high value carbonoff-setting.
These measures have led to carbon neutrality across the entire business, significantly seeing the brand receiving 100% of its electricity in the year 2019 from renewable energy sources. This means no less than 7,690 tons of CO2 emissions have been removed. (*the 2019 electricity mix published by the Spanish Ministry for the Ecological Transition calculator was used for this calculation).
On the other hand, 90% of the waste generated by Neolith® is recycled and given a second life either with company operations or through authorized 3rd party players which goes to prove the brand’s solid commitment to a circular economy.
Neolith® surfaces also embody these principles, with up to 48% of the weight of each slab produced from recycled material.
Plant machinery has been upgraded to improve energy efficiency, particularly the 3rd line’s furnace which has benefitted from the installation of an O2 and pressure control system, significantly reducing the amount of gas consumed. This is complemented by a 40% reduction of forklift truck diesel consumption and a 20% decrease in hazardous waste.
A policy has also been implemented to reduce the quantity of disposable plastic which is a small measure yet leads to major progress in reaching carbon neutrality.
