MAPEI announced it will produce a line of carbon-neutral products.
“For MAPEI, our carbon-neutral status is achieved by calculating the product’s carbon footprint and reducing it to zero through a combination of efficiency measures in-house, as well as through the acquisition of certified carbon credits in support of renewable energy and forestry protection projects,” said Brittany Storm, Sustainability Manager for MAPEI Corporation. “We understand that being carbon-neutral is not enough. This is just the start, we’re looking at our products and in our facilities themselves to reduce our carbon emissions.”
The assortment of products include a series of mortars, a corrosion inhibiting coating and a cementitious material for patching concrete.
“By using CO2 offsets through renewable energy and reforestation projects, the MAPEI family of carbon-neutral products offers our customers a way to make a contribution to the well-being of the environment, the planet and the future, while still providing the strength and durability for which MAPEI is so well known,” stated Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO of MAPEI. That is our commitment, and it crosses all of our product lines—not just our commercial and residential mortars and grouts, but also our materials for industry as well.”
