ENVIRONMENTAL CLAIMS
Yes, supplier public claims on products' environmental performance are verified as compliant with ISO 14021 'Environmental Labels and Declarations - Self-Declared Environmental Claims' (Type II Environmental Labelling requirements).

Biodiversity
The main ingredients of Radar™ ClimaPlus™ ceiling tile is slag wool made from blast furnace slag which is by-product of iron and steel making. Iron ore mining causes deforestation to destroy habitats and disrupts wildlife. It also causes sound and noise pollution. Recycling the slag into insulation reduces the impacts of landfill or stockpiling.

The product also contains kaolin and limestone. The extraction of kaolin and limestone involves mining, a high biodiversity impact process. Mining leads to loss of biodiversity, habitat destruction, modified soil and profiles, topography and drainage, which additionally impacts natural vegetation and surrounding biodiversity. Dust is one of the most visible impacts associated with limestone quarrying due to the drilling, crushing and screening of the rock.
