UN Sustainable Development Goals
By the year 2100, the earth will be inhabited by over 11 billion people. To accommodate everyone, we will need more than 2 billion new housings. This means that we have to build smarter, more efficiently and much more sustainably. We believe modular and offsite construction can solve the housing challenges facing us.
Using the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the SDGs, as our strategic framework, we have chosen a set of goals where we have committed as a company.
Fibo is an eco-friendly product
While there has been much focus on carbon emissions from buildings energy consumption (operational use), the same cannot be said for the scrutiny of the carbon emissions of the building materials used in construction – so called embodied carbon. Until now!
To meet the ambitious climate change targets set out at the Paris Agreement and COP26, Governments around the world are introducing regulations aimed at reducing embodied carbon in building projects.
Norway, Sweden, France and the Netherlands are just a few examples of countries leading the way with regulations that require a carbon analysis of the materials used in the construction of new buildings.
Fibo is a low carbon alternative to tiles and other wall coverings.
Wood is a renewable resource that stores carbon even when the product is in use. All plywood in Fibo’s wall panels is certified as coming from forests that are sustainably managed
EPDs detailing the environmental impact of our products are available. Fibo’s EPD can also be used by contractors when verifying new buildings under BREEAM
According to an independent climate screening analysis of Fibo by Asplan Viak, Fibo wall panels have a CO2 footprint that ranges from 32-45% lower than that of tiles – from a cradle to grave perspective. *The savings vary depending on market location
