The key performance benefits of our smart surface products contribute to and reflect our core value of responsibility to the environment. With the aim of reducing the need for harsh chemicals and frequency of maintenance, they underpin our cradle-to-grave Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
The LCA is the internationally recognised standard by which the overall environmental impact of our nanotechnology activities is benchmarked and assessed. Therefore, all planning and decision making is framed and lead by the priorities of minimising energy consumption, emissions and effects on health and ecosystems. Information produced from these assessments is made available to customers as a confirmation of our commitment to sustainability.
Equally prioritised is our commitment to nano coating product safety. Rather than an obligation to meet standards, we consider this an objective to exceed standards and do so wherever possible in the interests of achieving the highest safety standards possible.
