Embracing Economic Growth, Social Responsibility, and Environmental Protection
Sustainability is a broad term involving many factors with far-reaching
effects on the future of our resources – which affects economic
growth, our population – which affects social responsibility, and
ultimately our planet – which affects environmental protection.
Sustainability is about responsibility. Demilec is committed to operating
and producing products that are environmentally responsible.
Research from our Building Science group has shown us energy efficiency
is based on several key factors. With spray foam insulation, the R-value
is important, but not the only key factor. The quality and performance
of the air seal the spray foam delivers is just as important.
Demilec's products are developed and created using renewable and recycled
materials, which also contributes to sustainable design. In October 2014,
we reached a milestone in that we recycled our 300 millionth plastic bottle!
Tons of plastic waste was diverted from landfills and used in development
of our products.
We have also been recognized as a Green Approved Product by the NAHB Research
Center, a Certified Green Product by Eco Logo, and USDA Bio-Preferred.
