BrettMartin logoFoamalux Light Bio is low-carbon high quality substrate made with 25% bio-attributed PVC derived from wood-based residue, originating from the sustainable forestry industry. This process, alongside 100% renewable energy powered production, reduces carbon emissions in the finished sheet by 20% and provides a fantastic solution to brands who seek to meet sustainability objectives.

International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) standards are adhered to throughout the supply chain, utilising the mass balance approach, guaranteeing that every step meets traceability criteria and minimises any possible negative environmental impacts.

A Sustainable Future

As part of its sustainability strategy, Brett Martin measures and aims to reduce the impact of business operations, and in 2022, Planet Mark certification was achieved based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint.

Brett Martin’s dedication to achieving net zero emissions is evident through renewable energy infrastructure. With a 2.3MWP wind turbine towering at 99.5 meters on-site, and a 6.42MWp solar farm nearby, Brett Martin can quietly generate green energy, resulting in a savings of over 900 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.
