Trespa Sustainability 

Trespa International is one of the first producers of building panels to receive ISO 14001 certification. This Certification confirms that Trespa has a clearly formulated policy of goals and programmes and an environmental management system that is focused on continually improving performance. Trespa offers a genuine sincere approach to sustainable matters. Nature is at the core of it all.

Sustainability became a key part of Trespa’s strategy in 2010. Trespa’s sustainability policy is based on a deeply felt motivation to shift from ‘Being Less Bad’ for the environment to being ‘Good’ and creating new value. Over the years, Trespa has strived to monitor and improve environmental performance and has implemented a number of projects which reflect this. Trespa launched ‘Trespa Second Life’ where facade panels after their service time, instead of being disposed of now can be reused for outdoor furniture and many other applications.

Trespa’s sustainability policy is the creation of high-quality and durable products; if a product is durable it lasts long and the environmental impact of its production is spread over a longer time. Trespa is proud that the reference service life for Trespa Meteon panels is set at 50 years and a rating system for buildings. BREEM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction, and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a buildings environmental performance.


MondoClad Sustainability 

MondoClad ® solid aluminium is manufactured from more than 30% recycled material and is supplied as a pre-finished panel, being 100% recyclable at end of use. The paint is applied in a continuous process before the aluminium is fabricated into panels. This minimises the need for additional transportation compared to using a powder coating process.

PVDF coating, a ‘closed loop’ process, efficiently uses its curing ovens to burn and repurpose harmful VOCs as fuel, reducing energy use and pollutants. Composed of a fluoropolymer, acrylics, pigments, catalysers, and additives, PVDF’s water-insoluble nature prevents groundwater contamination, and its environmentally neutral particles pose no harm. UV radiation can break down the surface acrylic, minimizing environmental impact.

Aluminium is entirely recyclable, maintaining its quality without degradation. Recycling it uses merely 5% of the initial energy and produces only 5% of the greenhouse gases compared to new production. This efficiency is why around 75% of all aluminium ever made is still in circulation.

Recycling aluminium brings economic and environmental benefits, conserving natural resources, reducing environmental impact, and easing landfill stress.

A Lifetime of Service Aluminium building products are made from alloys that are weatherproof, corrosion-resistant and immune to the harmful effects of UV rays, ensuring optimal performance and longevity. Perhaps one of the most famous examples of aluminium’s durability is the dome of San Gioacchino ai Prati Castello Church in Rome. Clad in aluminium sheets in 1898, today, more than 100 years later, it’s still in pristine condition

PHD (Product Health Declaration) : Product Health Declaration discloses chemical hazards in products used in workplaces and in homes. It is formally recognised by the Green Building Councils – Green Star rating tools.
