Marshall-Tufflex has announced that it used an average of 60% recycled material in the production of its PVC-U cable management range in 2023.
Marshall-Tufflex has been using recycled material originating from waste PVC-U windows in manufacturing its products for 30 years and in 2023 this figure was at an average of 60%. The efforts are part of the company’s mission to drive positive change in the industry and represent over 2,750 tonnes of waste PVC-U that has been reused effectively for manufacturing Marshall-Tufflex products.
“To help combat the 25 million tonnes of waste generated by the construction industry ending up in landfill sites, we are revolutionising the way the built sector thinks about recycling. At Marshall-Tufflex, we want ALL PVC-U cable management products installed in buildings to be manufactured with recycled material and we would like this to be a reality by 2028,” says Jon Chamberlain, Managing Director at Marshall-Tufflex.
The latest figures from the manufacturer come as part of a wider strategy of initiatives that the company has put into place in its bid to reduce its impact on the environment for future generations.
“In addition to using recycled material in our manufacturing, we are also Planet Mark certified, which provides third-party verification of our environmental credentials, and we are also working towards a gold rating with EcoVadis. Furthermore, to help contractors identify the products and make specifications that will help make a positive environmental impact, we are able to supply embodied carbon reports on our entire range,” Jon concludes.
