The construction industry has a significant impact on the environment around us. It accounts for a substantial portion of global resource consumption, energy usage, and greenhouse gas emissions. With the mounting environmental challenges that we are facing today, it is crucial for the construction industry to adopt sustainable practices.
Sustainable construction practices prioritise the use of eco-friendly building materials, energy efficiency, waste reduction, and overall environmental responsibility. At Everest Industries, sustainability is a fundamental principle, integrated into every aspect of our operations. From manufacturing processes to product development, we’re committed to environmental responsibility. By adopting innovative sustainability solutions, we not only aim to create a positive impact on the planet but also set new industry standards.
Development of Eco-Friendly Building Products
The key to sustainable construction lies in the materials used. Traditional construction, which uses cement and brick walls, weighs heavily on the environment. It is resource-intensive and has a high carbon footprint, due to the process used in manufacturing bricks.
To address this, Everest has invested significant research and development in creating a range of eco-friendly construction materials that minimise environmental impact without compromising on quality or performance. For example, Everest boards have up to 35% fly ash content, making them a green product. 60% of the material used in these cement boards can be salvaged and recycled. They are also Green Pro certified and a member of IGBC (Indian Green Building Council).
Eco-Friendly Roofing Solutions
Roofing is a vital aspect of any building. At Everest Industries, we have developed innovative roofing solutions that prioritise sustainability, such as our non-asbestos, Hi-Tech roofing profile sheets. These roofing sheets provide excellent durability and have a long lifespan, making them a sustainable choice in the long run. Additionally, the sheets are designed to enhance thermal insulation, leading to reduced energy consumption and lower carbon emissions.
Green Flooring Solutions
Recognising the impact of conventional flooring materials on the environment, Everest Industries has developed green flooring solutions that prioritize sustainability without compromising on aesthetics or performance. Our mezzanine flooring systems offer flexibility in design and functionality. They can be easily adapted or expanded as business needs evolve, reducing the need for new construction or facility expansion. This scalability supports sustainable growth by minimising resource consumption and waste generation. This approach also reduces reliance on tiled or hardwood flooring and minimises deforestation.
Environmental Benefits of Sustainable Materials
Using eco-friendly building materials in construction offers several significant environmental benefits. Let’s look at a few of them.
1. Reduced carbon footprint:
Sustainable building materials, such as those offered by Everest Industries, are often manufactured with a lower carbon footprint. By incorporating recycled content or utilising renewable resources, these materials help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change, and preserve valuable natural resources.
2. Energy Efficiency:
Eco-friendly construction materials often have enhanced energy-saving properties. For instance, effective thermal insulation provided by eco-friendly roofing can significantly reduce the need for artificial heating and cooling, leading to lower energy consumption and decreased reliance on fossil fuels.
3. Waste Reduction:
Traditional construction practices generate substantial amounts of waste. However, sustainable materials, such as those developed by Everest Industries, prioritise resource efficiency and waste reduction. By creating products with a long life cycle, that are also easy to recycle, we contribute to a circular economy and reduce landfill waste.
In this way, by prioritising eco-friendly building materials, Everest is leading the way towards greener, environmentally conscious construction practices. We will continue to innovate construction solutions that combine aesthetics and sustainability, for satisfied customers and a healthy planet.
