ChovA products are manufactured in compliance with all environmental requirements and current legislation in force around these issues. This has resulted in obtaining the ISO 9001 and 14001 or the Environmental Product Declarations (EPD).
Our commitment to innovation, respect for the environment and sustainable development moves us every day to seek solutions and products that are increasingly efficient and ecological.
In the last years more and more buildings are betting on energy efficiency measures to reduce the environmental impact, improve thermal comfort and increase the acoustic insulation of buildings. As a result ChovA is mainly focused on the quality of the building enveloppe, its roof deck and floors and thus, supplies systems designed to reduce energy losses. In this way the ChovAFOAM XPS extruded polystyrene or the ChovACUSTIC Fieltex are achieving the target of reducing the non-renewable energy consumption by decreasing the demand for air conditioning energy in the buildings. These materials are essential to get almost zero energy consumption buildings classified as Passivhaus or that are getting BREAM, LEED or Green Acreditations in Spain.
At the moment of designing buildings with such afore-mentioned Acreditations, it is of most importance to reckon on the Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) of all the materials. Thus ChovA has the following EPDS:
- Different types of bituminous waterproofing membranes for decks, walls and foundations named POLITABER, ChovAPLAST EXTRA y ChovAPLAST.
- Different types of Extruded Polystyrene foam boards (ChovAFOAM XPS).
- Acoustic insulation products (ChovACUSTIC)
As an agent having an active participation in the building project, ChovA is committed to work daily in favour of the sustainability and for energy efficiency as a model of sustainable development.
ACCREDITATIONS FOR GREEN BUILDING
The climate change and the lack of resources have led to a greater awareness of citizens and building designers on environmental problems. A result, the study of a building is made beyond simple “good practices” and takes into account the saving of resources, comfort and also the selection of building materials according to environmental criteria.
Our products are accredited for green building Certification:
Environmental Product Declaration
The EPD provides an environmental profile based on the life cycle analysis (LCA) of products and offers verifiable and measurable information on the performance of building materials throughout the period from manufacture to the end of life. The environmental product declarations have been registered in the “DAP Cons” platform in accordance with the ISO Standards 14025 and EN UNE 15804 + A1
