Mapei Unveils Carbon-neutral Product Family

Mapei Canada, a manufacturer of construction materials for the building industry, has introduced a line of carbon-neutral products.

Now, specifiers, contractors and homeowners can choose to use products that are fully offset throughout their entire life cycle, Mapei said in a statement.

The carbon-neutral status is achieved by calculating the product’s carbon footprint and reducing it to zero through a combination of efficiency measures in-house, as well as through the acquisition of certified carbon credits in support of renewable energy and forestry protection projects.

“Mapei’s carbon-neutral product family is one of many of our sustainable offerings, which include a variety of health and environmental certifications, and is the latest offering in our long-ranging efforts to be good shepherds of the environment,” says Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO of Mapei North America.

The family of carbon-neutral products includes:

These products join Mapei’s Re-Con Zero Evo powder, which turns waste concrete into usable material.

“At Mapei, we like to say sustainability is built into everything that we do,” says Di Geso. “These enhanced products with optimized formulas are the result of that ongoing innovative drive and join our larger initiative to reduce our carbon footprint.”
