Sustainability showcase for SPATEX return

ARDEX Group UK is utilising a return as an exhibitor to SPATEX 2023 to showcase sustainability and energy saving initiatives linked to wet leisure projects plus new product development.

As part of its exhibitor presence during SPATEX, running at the Coventry Building Society Arena from January 31 to February 2, ARDEX Group UK will be introducing specialist systems to ensure perfect wet leisure and pool tiling, along with a new render system for internal pool surrounds, shower rooms and changing facilities.

According to the ARDEX Group UK, sustainability is a core corporate focus and is a critical launch factor in new product development. Ahead of SPATEX 2023 several initiatives have been introduced to reduce carbon emissions and save energy in construction.

These include lower life cycle costs, through high-performance products with extended project warranties; innovations to ensure less waste on site, with extended product working times but rapid-hardening for fast–track completion; saving energy through less mixing, and working with larger batches; new products that provide increased performance, with recyclable content; more environmentally-friendly packaging; and localised raw material sourcing.

With a Carbon Neutral (scope 1 & 2) target of 2030, the ARDEX Group UK has revealed that it has recently worked with Achilles (Recognised Certified Body) to accurately reduce and measure their Carbon Footprints endorsed by verifiable commitment to reduce emissions and to continually improve environmental performance.

Achilles’ Carbon Reduce (powered by Toitu) scheme highlights the necessary data from all activities which is critiqued under the ISO 14064:1 scheme.

“Measuring carbon output under ISO 14064-1 includes company vehicles, business travel, fuel and electricity, water and waste, to name a few,” reported an ARDEX Group UK spokesperson.

“In return, this assists ARDEX Group UK to accurately identify areas of the business where they can reduce their emissions and consequent impacts on the environment.”
