We strive to design hygienic Corian solutions that help safeguard the health of our planet, as well as the people who use them. Each step of our manufacturing process is carefully considered with sustainability in mind. From the materials we use, to where and how our products are designed, made, packaged and transported.
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY MATERIALS
Corian carries the highest number of environmental certifications of any solid surface manufacturer, including Greenguard Gold for low VOCs and NGBS Green Certified. Corian’s North American manufacturing plants use 100% renewable energy sources for all materials they produce. Corian also participates in the Responsible Care program of National and International Chemical Industry Associations. Specifying Corian in your projects may also contribute to LEED credits under the USGBC LEED Building Rating System and many other building and construction rating systems. The aluminum we use for our patented framing system is also known as the ‘green metal’ and ‘friendliest metal’, as it contains an industry average of 55.5% recycled content and can be used and recycled indefinitely.
MINIMIZING MATERIAL WASTE
Since 2011, Corian has achieved zero landfill status and we ourselves meticulously design each of our solutions to maximize Corian sheet yield and minimize waste. During the fabrication of our patented metal framing system, 100% of all excess aluminum material is recycled. Corian and Corian Quartz also contain up to 20% recycled content. All of our Corian solutions are prefabricated and arrive onsite ready for installation, eliminating onsite dust and waste.
REDUCING FURNITURE WASTE
Nine billion tons of furniture are disposed of in America each year. Commercial wood and laminate furniture may have life cycles of just 2-years before ending up as landfill.
Our solutions feature durable Corian surfaces which have the potential to last a lifetime. With simple sanding, Corian surfaces can be restored to look and perform like new, even after many years of use. Corian surfaces are also repairable, further helping to reduce unnecessary replacement costs and keeping the earth waste free.
REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Our solutions are proudly made in America and our fabrication locations are strategically placed to help reduce shipping distances and minimize our carbon footprint. By operating a remote working policy for our office team, we also save an average of 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per employee, per year.
CREATING SAFE, HEALTHY SURROUNDINGS
Through the use of our hygienic Corian solutions, we help support the creation of safe and sustainable environments, where we can all live, work, learn, play and heal with less risk of sickness or infection.
