HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT
PU Europe members are committed to developing polyurethane insulation products that adhere to the highest environmental and health standards. They also aim to provide whole life solutions for these products, ensuring they are designed and manufactured in a sustainable manner, and can be effectively managed and recycled throughout their life cycle.
PU Europe supports these efforts by closely co-operating with the European institutions and standardisation bodies in areas such as European waste policy and polyurethane waste strategies, indoor air quality of buildings and REACH. PU insulation products have one of the lowest indoor air emission levels of all insulation products on the market today – be they organic, mineral or natural. Hence, in countries where levels for the emission of dangerous substances exist, PU insulation (PUR and PIR) achieves the best class.
