Our sustainable interior construction system
Ampatex Eco 5 extra
Ampatex Eco 5 extra is the first ISCC-compliant vapour check. At least 62% of the product components consist of renewable raw materials or PCR (Post Consumer Recycling). Ampatex Eco 5 extra is more than just a sustainable vapour check. Among other things, it is characterised by extreme tensile strength and is therefore ideal for blow-in insulation.
Paper-based acrylic adhesive tape for airtight sealing of overlaps and joints on smooth surfaces when working indoors with membranes or panel-like building materials. Linerless = no waste.
What is sustainability?
- Conserve resources
- Reduce CO2 emissions
- Reduce waste
- Check the water balance
- Strive to achieve the highest possible economic efficiency
- Optimise cost structures
- Increase efficiency
- Treat everyone fairly
- Create and promote good working conditions
The challenges in construction
The world is changing. Climate change presents society with one of the greatest challenges in history. As a company in the construction industry, we must take particular responsibility and reduce our emissions:
- The construction industry and buildings cause around 38% of all greenhouse gas emissions
- Huge amounts of waste accumulate on construction sites
- Plastic packaging is responsible for about 5% of the plastic in the oceans
Sustainability at Ampack
Reduction of CO2 emissions
Ampack has its footprint calculated by myclimate and is working with a lot of passion and enthusiasm to reduce CO2 emissions. We refrain from using product components that are not absolutely necessary.
Ampack invests time and money in the production of ecological and sustainable products. The aim is to make as many products as possible recyclable and to manufacture them from recycled materials and renewable raw materials.
Mobility and energy
We reduce the energy consumption of our company building with a photovoltaic system and by optimising the building shell. Business air travel is reduced, and company vehicles are selected on the basis of ecological criteria, among other things.
As far as possible and reasonable, we contribute to the reduction of waste by avoiding unnecessary packaging, among other things.
Environmental declarations and labels
Part of our approach to sustainability is that we sell products that are harmless to humans. We are happy to prove this with corresponding labels (see below).
Labels and certifications
Ampack is an ISCC-certified company. As one of the world's leading certification systems, ISCC ensures that the company's statements about sustainability are true.
The goals of ISCC: ISCC contributes to the implementation of environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production processes and the utilisation of all types of biomass in global supply chains.
ISCC's sustainability principles:
- Ecological sustainability, e.g. environmentally compatible production to protect soil, water and air
- Social sustainability, e.g. respect for human, labour and land rights
- Control of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, e.g. monitoring of GHG reduction
- Good management practices, e.g. following the mission statement and company vision
Management of the supply chain and verification of compliance with ISCC requirements: Traceability throughout the supply chain enables any party to source sustainable products from any certificate holder. An ISCC-certified company is audited annually for compliance with all requirements.
The French VOC label uses a scale from A+ to C to declare the emission output of the product. Numerous Ampack products are labelled A+, very low, < 10 µg/m³.
This seal is awarded to those who subject their products to elaborate tests by recognised institutes and have them classified in emission categories on the basis of the measured data. Numerous Ampack products carry the EC1 Plus label, the premium class.
Ampack products that carry the eco-INSTITUT label are reliably low in emissions and harmful substances and can be used without restriction in construction projects. The first choice for responsible and health-conscious architects, planners and consumers.
PU insulation materials that bear the "pure life" eco label are guaranteed to be low-emission, harmless to health and suitable for indoor use.
The baubook platform offers an extensive catalogue of ecological and energy criteria, a product database with manufacturer and dealer details, and the basic building physics and building ecology data for calculating energy and ecological performance indicators.
The AgBB scheme is probably the most important European test scheme for product emissions and, with its requirements, defines the indoor suitability of tested products (hazard prevention).
