Sustainability

OUR POLICY

Meeting our needs today without depleting the world's resources for tomorrow.

Being able to meet our needs today without depleting the world's resources for tomorrow is at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to operating in socially and environmentally responsible ways. Our wool rich products offer a sustainable flooring choice. We actively work to improve our environmental performance across our operations worldwide.



Wool Hands

WOOL RICH PRODUCTS

Wool is a durable fibre. The longer lifecycle of wool rich woven carpets, combined with good maintenance, negates the need for frequent replacement. Reduced replacement cycles means less waste.

Wool is a natural and renewable resource. Shearing is essential for the welfare of sheep and wool grown on sheep which graze freely is 100% natural, plus it's easily recyclable and biodegradable, making wool the ultimate sustainable choice for flooring.

LEED

Our carpets contribute positively to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification system (developed by the U.S. Green Building Council) which promotes global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices.

Indoor air quality is protected through very low emissions of VOC’s, even when carpet is new. Our carpets do not pollute the air. They actually remove some of the contaminants and improve the overall living environment.



Brintons products contribute to LEED certification in two categories:

  • Rapidly Renewable Materials
  • Low Emitting Materials

OUR PROCESSES

Sustainability and environmental stewardship underpins our activities. We actively work to improve our environmental performance to reduce our impact on the environment, continually developing our environmental policies and procedures across our operations worldwide.

We are continually looking at ways to reduce energy and water consumption and our carbon emissions across all sites:

  • Rainwater harvesting
  • Use of recycled water in dyeing
  • High efficiency lighting
