Sustainability

We’re committed to environmental responsibility and creating low level environmental impact products.

From our no phthalate policy, to improving our energy efficiency, to our use of recycled material in products, we take sustainability seriously. Which is why our products achieve the top A+ BREEAM/BRE Green guide rating, why we’re leading industry standards and why we’re the sustainable flooring choice for projects across all sectors.

Production

We oversee the entire manufacturing process at our two sites, in Coventry (UK) and Madison (USA), so we can control our raw materials, waste management and recycling. We have a recycling policy that means customers can return goods to either of our manufacturing plants or our two European depots for recycling.

Raw Material

Our production facilities in UK and USA are ISO 14001 certified, where possible we aim to work only with other similarly certified suppliers. Almost 100% of our production and post- production material is granulated and recycled back into the product.

Water Management

Our advanced water management system helps us to deliver stabilised water usage. This new system has enabled us to reduce water chemical usage by almost 20%.

Energy

We’re committed to energy efficiency initiatives, the recent installation of movement sensors and timers across our offices has reduced our electricity usage.

VOC's

We’re committed to reprocessing returned floors into new Amtico products. If it’s not possible to recycle material directly we down-cycle it into other, lower grade PVC products.
