We shall ensure our Environmental Management System (EMS) delivers according to the existing local and international standards. We will continuously monitor and seek to improve our environmental performance by regularly reviewing our policy and its impact on the environment.
- We offer Longboard ECO™, a suite of products that contain recycled aluminum. Manufacturing these products results in less greenhouse gas emissions and generates less than 50% of the industry average embodied carbon.
- These products meet the same strict quality benchmarks as our standard line of products, are offered with the same robust warranties, and possess verified life cycle impact analysis (LCIA) and environmental product declarations (EPD). We provide architects, designers, and builders with a sustainable option for reducing embodied carbon, support LEED certification, and make achieving net-zero emissions attainable.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
The same premium Longboard® products, now building a healthier future
All Longboard products are 100% recyclable, VOC and LBC red list free, made using a chrome-free pretreatment, manufactured using hydro-electric power, and can help earn LEED credits.
A Real Impact
Aluminum is infinitely recyclable and can support a circular economy.
The Aluminum Association recently reported that since 1991, the carbon footprint of primary aluminum production declined by 49% while the footprint of recycled aluminum production dropped by 60%.
Longboard ECO™ products possess verified life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) and product-specific environmental product declarations (EPD).
These product-specific EPDs are essential as we see a shift in policies towards lower embodied carbon buildings.
Longboard® is Innovative Sustainable Quality Visually Stunning
CO2 Cradle-to-gate (Using 50% Recycled AL)
Using at least 50% recycled aluminum, Longboard ECO™ products instantly reduce the carbon emissions of the first three steps in the aluminum extraction process.
After ore is mined, the Bayer process which refines bauxite into alumina accounts for 28% of the entire embodied carbon of aluminum products.
Next, the electrolysis smelting Hall–Héroult process produces 99.5–99.8% pure. This energy intensive process is the largest contributor to the carbon emissions of the aluminum production cycle.
Recycled aluminum requires no electrolysis, thus it does not end up in this process.
Less mining, less refining, and less smelting means a savings of approximately 45% of total embodied carbon in our Longboard ECO™ aluminum products.
Our products have more recycled aluminum than the industry average, meaning we are reducing embodied carbon on a tangible level to make change.
