Sustainability and Innovation in Surfaces

The built environment produces a third of the world’s waste. Every year about 100 billion tonnes of raw materials are extracted for use across the buildings and construction sector. Today, it is possible to create products that have a positive impact on the world around us. More sustainable and carbon neutral, with higher percentages of recycled materials and a longer life cycle. Designing for a sustainable future requires architects, designers, and specifiers to look at materials from a more holistic perspective.
