Transforming interior spaces with innovative acoustic solutions




Carbon neutral

We are carbon neutral in everything we do

Climate promise

Our commitment to fighting climate change

With estimates showing approximately 40% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are directly and indirectly caused by buildings, we believe that the building industry needs to take responsibility for the impact of the built environment on the climate. Over the course of our sustainability journey we have developed a strategy that sets the direction for our goals and initiatives. We have aligned these with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, identifying six that connect specifically to our strategy. The first of these goals is climate action.

From 1967 to the present

Our journey










Established in 1967

Founded in Auckland, NZ, creating underfelt for the flooring industry.

Sustainability milestone

Established a zero-waste production line.

Sustainability milestone

Reclaimed waste trimmings, reducing raw material use and associated emissions.

Sustainability milestone

First Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) published and started measuring GHG emissions.

Sustainability milestone

Dematerialisation project which reduced raw material use by 30% for core product.

Sustainability milestone

We balanced all emissions from our acoustic products to zero.

Sustainability milestone

We balanced all emissions from our global operations to zero, including The United Kingdom, United States of America, New Zealand, and Australia.

All our products and global operations are carbon neutral. Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the future

Carbon neutral in everything we do

Change starts with us

Design driven

After a rigorous review and transition, our company operations in UK, USA, New Zealand, and Australia are all carbon neutral.

Performance motivated

To take action on our commitment to fighting climate change, we actively monitor our carbon emissions and have committed to being a net-zero carbon organisation. In 2017 we began carbon accounting for our core manufacturing facility in New Zealand, however, as our operational footprint is global, we decided to extend the scope of our carbon accounting efforts to all global operations in 2019. Our current GHG emission profile is 8,955 t CO2e—the equivalent annual emissions of 1,767 passenger vehicles (source: EPA GHG Calculator). Now that we have baseline data of our global carbon footprint, we are working across the business to establish carbon reduction plans to help further reduce our carbon emissions in the future.

Science led

Alongside monitoring our emissions, our carbon neutral product initiative assesses the carbon emissions generated by the supply, manufacture and delivery of our products, and offsets them through the purchase of certified carbon credits. We consider this as an investment in present and future generations, and simply a cost of doing business. It also encourages best practice and sets the bar high as a product supplier in the building industry. Using carbon data calculated by independent experts, we invest in third-party certified carbon credits generated by the Clean Development Mechanism. This enables us to financially support a variety of climate change projects and contribute to the reduction and removal of emissions now, while continuing to develop sustainable business practices that will reduce our carbon emissions in the future.
