Børsen Sustainable Cases is a new initiative whose purpose is to highlight great examples of tangible, scalable green projects that Danish companies are working on. The intention is to provide inspiration at the same time as acknowledging the 50 selected projects. Børsen is the leading commercial newspaper in Denmark.
Tile adhesive helps combat climate change
Alfix has been nominated in the “Combating climate change” category for developing a new tile adhesive – Alfix ProFix Plus – whose climate footprint is 27 percent lower than that of the standard Alfix ProFix product. The perspective – and the expectation – is that the new adhesive will take over as Alfix’s best-selling product.
The new, low-carbon tile adhesive, Alfix ProFix Plus, is ideal for environmentally certified constructions projects such as Swan-labelled construction and DGNB projects. The product is also the first Swan-labelled tile adhesive in Denmark.
It is the composition of raw materials that has played the key role in making it possible to cut the climate impact of the tile adhesive. The extraction, refinement and transport of the raw materials actually account for more than 98 percent of the total carbon impact from Alfix, and the new ingredients include low-carbon cement and a naturally produced light filler.
In recognition of green initiatives across various sectors
The 50 cases have been selected by the Børsen Sustainable editorial team in close consultation with the Wilke analysis agency and an advisory board of sustainability specialists from the business community. The idea behind the initiative is, inter alia, to recognise the numerous green initiatives being introduced in the business community – in the same way as Børsen annually acknowledges the gazelle companies that are powering growth and innovation. The initiative is intended to contribute to the cultural change which, at the end of the day, is expected to define the degree of sustainability.
Here at Alfix, we are delighted and grateful to have been named one of the Børsen Sustainable Cases in 2022.
The recognition is significant, particularly as it comes in the wake of Alfix winning the 2022 Building Industry Environmental Award in May, for the company’s ambitious work in the field of the environment and OHAS. This provides a platform for the company to reach even further and provide inspiration with sustainable systems for the construction sector – not just in the construction industry itself, but more broadly within the business community.
