Brintons is actively working to improve its environmental performance and reduce its impact on the environment. All Brintons manufacturing sites have environmental management systems in place.
Brintons takes seriously its environmental and social responsibilities and is committed to the long term aims of sustainable development in all its business activities. Brintons produces carpets from renewable resources, with extended lifecycles, manufactured in plants continually striving to reduce their environmental footprint, through environmentally aware employees in sustainable communities.
Wool is by far the largest component of a Brintons carpet, being a natural renewable product, sourced from sheep which are “fuelled by grass” in some of the most beautiful countryside in the world.
In recognition of its sustainability credentials, a Brintons carpet contributes positively to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) building certification criteria. It also meets the stringent standards of the Carpet and Rug Institute Green Label Plus programme, contributing to a healthy indoor environment, together with possessing good insulation and air borne contaminant removal properties.
A major initiative being undertaken is to recycle both process waste and finished carpet at the end of its life. Good progress is being made, with the majority of textile waste streams now having recycling outlets, thus reducing volumes going to landfill.
With over 230 years experience we understand the meaning of sustainability. Our long term strategy will ensure we continue to support our employees, communities, all stakeholders, and of course the sheep!
