We have always been committed to sustainability. Our roofing experts not only offer innovative solutions to protect people from any weather but also return the favour to the environment with sustainable products and processes.
We pay close attention to our manufacturing process, designed to be low in energy consumption and generate no dangerous waste. By using high-tech recycling processes, we recycle 200,000 tons of material each year. All these initiatives enabled us to reach a positive carbon footprint of 4066 g CO2/m2, significantly lower than any other roofing solution provider according to Pure Project, a French company specialized in environmental issues, especially in the fight against deforestation.
We have always provided asbestos free and lightweight solutions, easy to be carried and installed, meaning less energy, lighter structures… Not to mention acoustical and thermal comfort for end-users.

ICC-ES, June 2011
- Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
IBU (Institut Bau und Umwelt) / PE International, February 2013
We are the first company who applied for an EPD for our bitumen corrugated product family. We thus created a Product Category Rule for Roofing and Wall Cladding (PCR) that was accepted in July 2012 by German Institute IBU. This PCR will be the basis for all future EPD’s for all suppliers.
EPD provides quantified and required data to monitor life circle assessment (LCA) impact.
Recycled content and EPD provide elements for LEED certifications or green standards for sustainable green building operations.
