Environmental sustainability at Flexi-Tile

At Flexi-Tile we have always held a strong commitment to operating a socially and environmentally responsible business. This ethos has guided how we have run all our operations from the manufacturing and production process, the materials in our products to the lighting in our offices and it will continue to do so for many years to come.

In the unique position of being able to control our own manufacturing process in-house, we have been able to combine innovation with sustainability, to produce a range of environmentally friendly tiles from 100% recycled materials. Recent years has also saw the investment into improving our manufacturing process, with the installation of new equipment to help minimise the environmental impact of our machines. With no act deemed too big or small where environmental sustainability is concerned, larger measures also include the installation of solar PV panels which operate alongside smaller changes such as energy saving light bulbs.

As our company and operations evolve so does our sustainability practices. Most recently the development and move to our new Riverbank site has required new thinking, to ensure our sustainability practices not only continue but grow. As a result, finding a way to power our new factory and office operations with renewable resources was a main priority. In search for the best sustainability options, we are now happy to have 100% of our electricity generated from renewable resources with SSE Airtricity.

The small changes we continue to make to our business are very important to help us improve our environmental footprint and the future sustainability of our environment. Sustainability truly is at the heart of everything we do here at Flexi-Tile and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
