Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Finnfoam is a pioneer in energy efficient structural solutions. We want to promote energy efficient construction and help reduce the energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions of buildings. A well-insulated building provides the foundation for all this.
We are constantly developing our products and manufacturing methods toward a more responsible direction in order to influence the life-cycle carbon footprint of construction. We are also a trailblazer in matters pertaining to both quality and the environment.
PROPER INSULATION IS A FORM OF ECO-ACTION
Finnfoam offers thermal insulation solutions that provide structural energy efficiency. Finnfoam products allow you to insulate buildings safely to ensure energy efficiency. Our products are effective and durable, and they provide savings on energy consumption throughout their lifecycle.
Reducing the energy consumption during the use of a building through structural energy efficiency and ensuring the long useful life of structures are key factors for minimizing the carbon footprint.
TOWARD A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FOR CONSTRUCTION
We are constantly developing our products and manufacturing methods toward a more responsible direction in order to influence the life-cycle carbon footprint of construction.
LIFE-CYCLE CARBON FOOTPRINT
A Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) is used to assess a building’s environmental impact and consumption of natural resources, i.e., its environmental sustainability. The life-cycle assessment considers the entire life-cycle of the building, from the procurement of materials to the end of its useful life. Read how we at Finnfoam can influence the life-cycle carbon footprint of construction both through our activities and our products.
ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION SYSTEM FOR CONSTRUCTION BREEAM
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is an international environmental certification system for construction, which can be used to assess the environmental, social, and economic responsibility of properties. With Finnfoam Oy’s insulation solutions, our customers are better equipped to obtain a BREEAM certification for their building.
PIONEER IN QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL MATTERS
Since 2013, an Environmental Product Declaration (RTS EPD) has been prepared for each Finnfoam product. Environmental Product Declarations provide information on the environmental impact of construction materials, which is used in the preparation of LCAs for buildings.
Finnfoam’s main focus is to provide solutions that enable low energy consumption to our customers. Structural energy efficiency allows us to ensure low energy consumption by buildings, which means that energy can be generated at practically sized power stations producing renewable energy.
Finnfoam has been investing in the energy efficiency of its plants throughout the 21st century.
