Swish Building Products is delighted to announce that it has received a second independently verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), this time for its Kayflow rainwater and Swish specification rainwater ranges.

Shot31new.jpgThis EPD covers the full suite of rainwater products from Kayflow and demonstrates that quality does not have to be compromised for sustainability. Featuring a variety of styles, sizes and colours, the ranges are manufactured using post-consumer waste as the core material, combined with a virgin co-ex skin to provide the high-quality that customers have come to expect from Kayflow.

As a business, operating sustainably is at the forefront of everything that Swish does and this latest EPD reinforces its ongoing commitment to improving its environmental performance, as Dave Osborne, Technical Manager at Swish Building Products, explains:

"Sustainability is not a concept we have adopted recently; it has been a major driver of our business for a number of years and is at the heart of every decision we make, from product development, to manufacturing, to delivery, and beyond."

Dave continues: "As the industry becomes more mindful of the sustainability of materials, our customers need the correct information to demonstrate the origins of the products they are using. Our EPDs provide this. They supply customers with all the data and evidence they require in a clear, concise, and transparent way, to authenticate the sustainability credentials of our products."

To obtain this latest EPD, Swish once again approached the Building Research Establishment (BRE), whom they worked with previously. Whilst there is no obligation for manufacturers to provide EPDs, it is Swish's continued commitment to sustainability that led them to pursue it and the company will continue to look to obtain further EPDs for its wider product ranges.

"Both EPDs are a culmination of hard work and dedication from our team and demonstrate how seriously we take the collective industry obligation of working towards a net-zero carbon future," concludes Dave.
