We believe that the building industry has the potential to be a lot greener. And we know that we have our part to play. Our vision is to become the most sustainable manufacturer of bricks and tiles. This ambition drives our daily work towards a more efficient and environmental-friendly production. We believe this is a never-ending process and are determined to keep on improving.
All production of building materials impacts the environment; bricks and tiles are no exception. What makes them better from an environmental and economic point of view is their exceptionally long lifespan and their minimal need for maintenance. The Danish Technological Institute estimates that the total price per square metre of new brick and tile construction is significantly lower than that of other materials by virtue of their low maintenance costs. Bricks and tiles therefore make up for their environmental impact as time goes by.
Respect for future generations is not only about economic and environmental impact. It also has a social element in terms of how we design houses with a positive effect on both health and well-being. When using bricks and tiles as building materials, there is a minimal risk of bacterial growth, ensuring a better inner climate. In addition, bricks and tiles also maintain a more even range of temperature and regulate humidity when compared to lighter materials, such as wood and plaster. By using robust and authentic building materials with a long lifecycle, an architect can easily design sustainable houses and environments that last. Additionally, bricks and tiles offer an authentic aesthetic, which gives any building a timeless design fit for future generations
