It can seem overwhelming as an individual to know what to do about the climate.
One simple choice can make a giant impact though: you can turn your building from a climate villain to climate hero by constructing or retofitting it with insulation which actually stores carbon.
Our company was founded in order to maximise the scale of impact on climate change. We studied climate change when at university and we focused on finding the best solution.
Unlike all the conventional construction insulation companies, we not only insulate buildings, we use materials which are better-than-zero carbon. There is more carbon stored in our fast-growing plant-based products via photosynthesis than the amount of carbon used to manufacture them. At a rate 5 x greater than timber does this.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report this week. We need to much more, on a much bigger scale - and much faster. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-45775309
Unlike those other companies which are making climate change worse, we are doing exactly what the IPCC report says the world needs: 1. Capture CO2 with fast-growing crops and 2. Insulate buildings.
There about 150,000 new homes built per year in the UK. If our bio-insulation instead of petrochemical foams is used in all of those buildings, this equates to a savings of 3,000,000 tCO2e; which according to the EPA is = 70,800,000 trees growing for 10 yrs.
If your building isn't part of the solution, it's part of the problem. We can help make your building a climate hero!
