The Greengage Sustainability Awards aim to recognise outstanding achievement in the field of business travel, meetings & events and related sustainable products & services. To stay in line with their focus on the environment, the ceremony will take place on the evening of Tuesday 8 November at the Marylebone Hotel, with a promise of carbon neutrality and all funds being donated to the WWF.

Dr Aidan Bell, spokesperson for EnviroBuild, expressed his excitement for the upcoming event, and said:

"I'm delighted that all the hard work our product development team have put into removing embodied carbon from Sisu is being recognised by the wider building industry. It is great that sustainable business practices are now being championed a lot more"

Thanks to their persistence in employing sustainable operations through all parts of the construction process, it is no wonder that EnviroBuild has been shortlisted for such a prestigious award. EnviroBuild is driven by its environmental mission, in which it aims to be an industry leader in the world of sustainable construction and encouraging the industry as a whole to follow suit. With a dedicated product development team that focuses on green innovation with the ultimate aim of establishing a closed loop across all products, Envirobuild continually works to improve its product range so it can offer market-leading solutions for performance, quality and environmental standards.

The EnviroBuild team has worked hard to produce the most sustainable LVT flooring on the market in terms of global warming potential. Sisu LVT flooring has a significantly reduced environmental impact compared to its competition, owing to a real focus on quality and energy mix.

Quality: The higher the quality of a product, the longer it lasts, meaning it is replaced less often and the overall impact on the environment is lessened. The quality of Sisu LVT is reflected in its remarkable 35-year warranty and minimal maintenance requirements.

Energy Mix: EnviroBuild conducted full Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) on their Sisu products, and found that the electricity used in extraction was a large source of greenhouse emissions. Following this discovery, EnviroBuild works closely with its supply chain to ensure that renewable electricity is being used for raw material extraction. Sisu LVT flooring is therefore made using 100% wind energy.

It has taken several years to perfect Sisu LVT flooring in terms of its sustainability, but it has been a fruitful endeavour. The Senior Innovation Manager at EnviroBuild, James Bedingham, said this of the matter:

"Sisu's journey has been a long and winding route but earlier this year we achieved our goal of creating the most sustainable LVT on the market in what I hope will see a shift in the industry as others try to catch up. It was the endless work by our product development team that allowed Sisu to push the boundaries of sustainability like this. Being shortlisted for Innovative Product of the Year at the Greengage Sustainability Awards is a testament to the importance of innovations that help us to build a more sustainable future"

Sisu LVT flooring brings a plethora of other innovations alongside its impressive sustainability. As well as being durable, light and easy to install with award-winning Ultrabond Eco adhesive, Sisu is both water-resistant and sound absorbing with a soft and warm underfoot, which is perfect for indoor applications.

Envirobuild Backgrounder

Quality sustainable building materials without compromise

EnviroBuild is the UK's leading builders' merchant for sustainable building materials. They apply the latest technological innovations to provide highly engineered and lasting environmentally friendly solutions over traditional building materials. With over 60 years of experience in the construction industry, EnviroBuild are leaders in their field, and providing a quality experience for customers is at the core of their values. Their highly trained expert team are on-hand to help customers at every stage of their project, from take-off to completion.

Most recently, EnviroBuild launched new composite decking boards to join the Pioneer and Frontier lines in the highly successful Hyperion range. Hyperion Explorer has on one side a luxury, authentic textured wood grain effect and on the other a traditional grooved finish, giving homeowners the choice for their garden project. The game-changing Hyperion decking boards, in addition to the cladding and fencing ranges of the same name, are now produced using renewable wind energy as well. These latest changes to the production method mean that Hyperion composite decking boards will now produce a whopping 59.67% less carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) across its lifetime than maintained timber deck boards.

Within the high-rise construction industry, EnviroBuild is not standing still either. The new 150 Aqua Channel aluminium decking system is their newest revolutionising non-combustible system on the market complying with the newest fire legislations. The decking boards can be installed alongside built-in drainage for effortless upkeep. Its modern take on decking means a flush insert can provide a smooth and continuous look or be removed to create a more traditional look of gapped individual boards. This ensures 150 Aqua-Channel caters to all preferences and can be used to create versatile designs.

Given the innovative nature of these materials and others EnviroBuild supplies, it is no surprise that the products are distributed across thousands of homes in the UK and are increasingly becoming the first choice for contractors, architects, landscapers, and construction firms. In 2020 alone, EnviroBuild brought on six new commercial projects during lockdown including Taylor Wimpey's new homes development at Innsworth and CALA homes construction in Cheltenham. EnviroBuild also featured in the Guardian and on ITV. Their garden furniture collection - Galleon - was also recommended by the Independent and in 2020 saw a massive 250% increase on 2019 sales.

The business turned over £13 million in its last financial year and in quarter two of 2020 EnviroBuild reported a 45% increase in revenue on 2019's figures and that increased even further in quarter three with a 51% rise in revenue via the retail sales division.

Above all, EnviroBuild's mission remains to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the construction industry by providing high quality products that are consistently the better environmental choice over current traditional products on the market. For every product EnviroBuild sells, a pragmatic approach is taken to manufacture a commercially viable product with significant environmental benefits; whether using high levels of recycled material, renewable energy in production or intelligent design to reduce input material in finished goods without compromising a long operational life.

These careful assessments naturally resulted in several awards highlighting the company's sustainable efforts. In 2018, EnviroBuild had been awarded the Federation of Small Business London Ethical and Green Business of the Year awards,  and was presented with the Golden Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice within the "Building & Construction, Innovation" category at the International Green Apple Environment Awards. Most recently, they won the West London Business Award in the "Green Circular Economy Business of the Year" category at the start of 2021.

EnviroBuild also dedicates 10% of profits to sustainable causes, which is unmatched in the industry. From the beginning they have been supporting Rainforest Trust in their mission to protect endangered rainforests and species. They recently celebrated their 5th year of donations to the organisation and with those contributions protected nearly 250,000 acres equating to over 62million trees across Africa, South America, Central America and Asia.

EnviroBuild are true industry leaders in progressing the sustainability and environmental impact within the construction industry.
