A former prison repurposed into a lean and green marketplace; the façade of an old business centre recycled into state-of-the-art shutters; a hospital transformed into a carbon-neutral modular hotel … After over a century of designing light-weight fibre-cement cladding that lasts a lifetime, we are shifting our focus to ‘What Lies Beyond’. Working with like-minded engineers, academics, suppliers, fabricators, architects and installers, we are determined to push the boundaries of our industry and close the loop on our materials.

Our 2030 ambitions

At EQUITONE, we dedicate ourselves to reuse and recycle all our materials, giving them a second life. With your help, we want to take it one step further and rethink the way they are designed and used, reducing our natural resource consumption and cutting out waste.

Light-impact
materials

minimising their environmental footprint
throughout their entire life cycle

Zero waste to

keeping our materials in use and out of landfill

The circular potential of fibre-cement cladding

Made of water, Portland cement, cellulose and natural minerals, 
our materials are the perfect building blocks for a circular construction industry.

Our 3 areas of focus

How we want to go from long life and lightweight to light impact and circular by design:

Circular design

Circular design

Designing our materials as a modular system that is easy to dismantle, repair and rebuild – making sure they can be reused and recycled over and over again.

rethinking traditional building design.

 

Why circular construction

is the only way forward

The construction industry is a major consumer of raw materials, responsible for:

There is resource scarcity, and there is the fact that all of the above contribute significantly to the climate crisis. Which is why we call on you to help us turn things around.

Circularity calls for collaboration. In order to eliminate the total footprint of our materials – not just in production, but throughout their lifecycle – we need to look beyond our business and develop shared solutions with stakeholders up, down and outside of the value chain.
