We use 100% of the trim generated within the Vita Group as well as re-purposing trim from Vita Group customers, which means we are a net consumer of trim and stop 20Kt of trim foam going to landfill each Year.
Creating the right chemistry for a sustainable future.
We are a front-runner in offering customers a portfolio of products with lower carbon footprints to enable their decarbonization.
In future the use of renewable or recyclable raw materials from the Vita Groups production can be applied to the majority of Ball & Young’s product portfolio.
These solutions reduce CO2 emissions and save fossil resources.
The Vita group suppliers have developed a chemical recycling process for used mattresses. The materials from old mattresses are to be recycled in such a way that they can be used to produce new mattresses. Thanks to this approach, post-consumer waste will be fed back into Ball & Young’s Circular Economy.
We operate a responsible, resourceful and safe business. We commit to, and invest in, reducing waste. We are proud of our achievements and will continue to push forwards to enhance everyday life.
