FENIX is part of a global group of companies and brands that is active in material technology for interior and exterior design. The group's objective is to reduce our environmental footprint. To do so, our impact is measure using the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology. Although we look broader than that, our main focus is on CO2 emissions and to become carbon neutral in the years that will follow as we did for FENIX® in 2021.
To continuously improve our carbon footprint, we work on a number of projects, which includes increasing the efficiency of production processes and find better alternatives for the resources we need. And we regularly monitor the progress on all projects. We are transparent about the results and we publish them in a yearly report, which is available online for everyone to read.
To summarize: We measure. We act. We monitor. We share.
FENIX is a durable material. its durability is an important quality that makes it especially attractive from an environmental point of view. Long life means less waste and a saving in resources.
