EnviroBuild Sisu Luxury Vinyl Tile now Manufactured with 100% Wind Energy
EnviroBuild is thrilled to announce that one of their most popular ranges of vinyl tiles, the Sisu Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), is now manufactured using 100% renewable wind energy. This marks the latest step in the company’s ongoing journey to improve sustainability in their products and to reduce the impact that their operations have on the environment.
The impact of this shift is significant. By simply moving the production of this LVT over to renewable wind energy, EnviroBuild is making a reduction of between 19.4% and 22.6% in carbon dioxide equivalent emissions across the supply chain and the lifetime of their Sisu LVT products. It demonstrates the dedication that EnviroBuild has to making big changes for the planet.
This isn’t the first product that EnviroBuild has lowered the carbon impact of; last year, the company announced that their popular Hyperion composite decking ranges were now being produced using 100% renewable energy. It’s another step in the company’s mission to improve the availability of sustainable, environmentally responsible materials in the construction industry, offering consumers, builders, and developers the opportunity to make eco-friendly choices at every stage of construction.
James Brueton, Founder of EnviroBuild, commented on the announcement, saying “We’re thrilled to announce this new development; it’s something we’ve been working on for a long time, and it reflects the dedication and hard work of our entire team at EnviroBuild. We’re still working on becoming completely carbon neutral by focusing on sustainability and renewables across our entire product range, and we’ll be sharing these developments with stakeholders and customers as they happen. For now, we really hope our customers choose to make buying decisions that are good for the planet as well as themselves.”
EnviroBuild has big plans for the future, including shifting more of their manufacturing to wind energy sources and identifying other areas where savings can be made. This is part of an undergoing project by EnviroBuild using data and insights to make improvements to reduce their carbon footprint in a safe and responsible way.
With plans to minimise recycled content across their product range and make further shifts towards renewables, EnviroBuild is a company that is dedicated to meeting its Environmental Pledge.

Quality sustainable building materials without compromise
EnviroBuild is the UK’s leading builders’ merchant for sustainable building materials. They apply the latest technological innovations to provide highly engineered and lasting environmentally friendly solutions over traditional building materials. With over 60 years of experience in the construction industry, EnviroBuild are leaders in their field, and providing a quality experience for customers is at the core of their values. Their highly trained expert team are on-hand to help customers at every stage of their project, from take-off to completion.
Most recently, EnviroBuild launched new composite decking boards to join the Pioneer and Frontier lines in the highly successful Hyperion range. Hyperion Explorer has on one side a luxury, authentic textured wood grain effect and on the other a traditional grooved finish, giving homeowners the choice for their garden project. The game-changing Hyperion decking boards, in addition to the cladding and fencing ranges of the same name, are now produced using renewable wind energy as well. These latest changes to the production method mean that Hyperion composite decking boards will now produce a whopping 59.67% less carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) across its lifetime than maintained timber deck boards.
Within the high-rise construction industry, EnviroBuild is not standing still either. The new 150 Aqua Channel aluminium decking system is their newest revolutionising non-combustible system on the market complying with the newest fire legislations. The decking boards can be installed alongside built-in drainage for effortless upkeep. Its modern take on decking means a flush insert can provide a smooth and continuous look or be removed to create a more traditional look of gapped individual boards. This ensures 150 Aqua-Channel caters to all preferences and can be used to create versatile designs.
Given the innovative nature of these materials and others EnviroBuild supplies, it is no surprise that the products are distributed across thousands of homes in the UK and are increasingly becoming the first choice for contractors, architects, landscapers, and construction firms. In 2020 alone, EnviroBuild brought on six new commercial projects during lockdown including Taylor Wimpey’s new homes development at Innsworth and CALA homes construction in Cheltenham. EnviroBuild also featured in the Guardian and on ITV. Their garden furniture collection – Galleon – was also recommended by the Independent and in 2020 saw a massive 250% increase on 2019 sales.
The business turned over £13 million in its last financial year and in quarter two of 2020 EnviroBuild reported a 45% increase in revenue on 2019’s figures and that increased even further in quarter three with a 51% rise in revenue via the retail sales division.
Above all, EnviroBuild’s mission remains to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of construction materials by providing high quality products that are consistently the better environmental choice over current traditional products on the market. For every product EnviroBuild sells, a pragmatic approach is taken to manufacture a commercially viable product with significant environmental benefits; whether using high levels of recycled material, renewable energy in production or intelligent design to reduce input material in finished goods without compromising a long operational life.
These careful assessments naturally resulted in several awards highlighting the company’s sustainable efforts. In 2018, EnviroBuild had been awarded the Federation of Small Business London Ethical and Green Business of the Year awards, and was presented with the Golden Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice within the “Building & Construction, Innovation” category at the International Green Apple Environment Awards. Most recently, they won the West London Business Award in the “Green Circular Economy Business of the Year” category at the start of 2021.
EnviroBuild also dedicates 10% of profits to sustainable causes, which is unmatched in the industry. From the beginning they have been supporting Rainforest Trust in their mission to protect endangered rainforests and species. They recently celebrated their 5th year of donations to the organisation and with those contributions protected nearly 250,000 acres equating to over 62 million trees across Africa, South America, Central America and Asia.
EnviroBuild are true industry leaders in progressing the sustainability and environmental impact within the construction industry.
