It means safely manufacturing our products in a way that minimizes our use of energy and natural resources. For example, our architectural film becomes carbon neutral in less than two months after installation — meaning the fuel used in its manufacture neither contributed to nor reduced the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. However — and this is huge—over the service life of the product, we’re actually providing 14 plus years of greenhouse gas reductions.
