Sustainability

Naue takes responsibility in maintaining an intact environment and takes an active role in the field of ecological construction with geosynthetics.

Naue is green. And has been for over 50 years. We believe in the sustainability of geotechnical solutions for the constructions industry due to their longevity, CO2 savings, improved energy balance and more. Naue also focuses on innovation in order to come up with even more sustainable product developments.

Geosynthetics improve the CO2 balance

Naue improves the carbon footprint of construction projects. Efficient solutions with geosynthetics reduce the need for raw materials and lower transport emissions. This is a simple but impressive example of an improved CO2 balance:

4500m2 sealing with Bentofix® (geosynthetic clay liner) = 1 truck 

In comparison:

4500m2 Sealing with compacted clay 500mm thick = 187 (!) trucks

Save energy, save the environment

There is a direct connection between the energy consumption and the environment. When consuming less power, we reduce the amount of toxic fumes released by power plants, conserve the earth’s natural resources and protect ecosystems from destruction.
