Building Tomorrow

The world needs us to do better. Our environment, our society, our economy. ARDEX is strongly committed to sustainable building solutions and a more responsible world.

From reducing our CO2 emissions and replacing finite raw materials with circular solutions over diversity and equality to ethical business practices and local sourcing – sustainability at ARDEX means tackling environmental, social and corporate governance issues.

First and foremost we offer products that are not just easy to work with, but they also go a long way and are low in emissions. But we also invest in production facilities to strengthen local businesses in our sales markets, safeguard jobs wherever we sell our products, boost the region’s economy and at the same time they ease the load on the environment thanks to short transport distances. Our production methods translate into premium quality and functional performance, coupled with exceptional reliability and durability.  With ARDEX products you know you’ve made the right choice when it comes to sustainable construction.

In addition, we understand sustainability as part of a strong, dependable partnership within the company and beyond. It’s one of the cornerstones of our corporate philosophy. As a family company, we see our employees as the foundation of our business, and seek collaboration with our market partners for a lasting, mutual benefit.

The sustainability values outlined below show into both, our daily work as well as our long-term goals.

ARDEX Sustainability Values

Source raw materials, packaging and products responsibly and work with our suppliers to deliver materials within our sustainability platform objectives.
Consider the life-cycle of products from innovation to disposal, and apply product declarations to support their use in the marketplace.
Promote the use of our products in repair and restoration to prevent the generation of waste from substrate/core structure replacement.
Use energy efficiently throughout our business processes. Measure and commit to reducing energy consumption and source its supply in line with the sustainability vision.
Eliminate waste and reuse, recycle or recover energy from waste that cannot be otherwise prevented. Waste will only be land-filled as a last resort.
Develop sustainable workplace environments, foster employee awareness to act in accordance to these values and promote social responsibility.
