Kebony has launched a new sustainability report which provides a transparent assessment for the company’s own sustainability credentials.

The new annual Kebony Sustainability Report uses the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework.

The new data for 2022 builds upon the materiality analysis conducted in 2021, identifying two key pillars around which to improve the environmental impact of the company.

These pillars include stepping up efforts to utilise wood sourced closer to key international markets and exploring all possible routes towards reducing carbon footprint at each stage of the company’s manufacturing process.

The business has reduced emissions in every industry-approved Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 categories while increasing their R&D spend to $1.5M across 2022, expanding the application and heightening the performance of the Kebony technology to new, locally sourced species of sustainable wood.

The report also highlights the centrality of innovative wood products in tackling the climate crisis, with an estimated emissions saving of 143,000 metric tons of CO2 had Kebony products been substituted in place of the total US and EU sales output of Ipe hardwood materials across 2022.

The report also outlines Kebony’s roadmap to investigate investments and operational requirements needed to meet net-zero by 2035, as well the planned launch this year into new research programme for natural, bio-based chemical products.

Jean-Baptiste Clavel, CEO for Kebony, commented: “At Kebony, our unique technology has a proven track record of delivering important solutions to the global challenges of greenhouse gas emissions and the destruction of our world’s rainforests.

“Making a positive impact on the environment is a core value in our daily operations and organisation today, and will continue to drive our strategy, policy and practices as we look to revolutionise a sustainable future for the global construction industry.’’
