Sustainable glazing for a greener world

Fineo vacuum glazing is 100% recyclable, is produced using sustainable principles and is kind to the environment.

Sustainability does not start or stop with production, it is a mindset.

FINEO is produced in Lodelinsart (Belgium). This is a very conscious choice because the Belgian electricity network emits little carbon. The ecological footprint would be much larger if the production were to take place in another country. Moreover, in 2019, FINEO installed a large number of solar panels allowing the company to operate as much as possible on green electricity generated on-site. In other words, FINEO is a thoroughly local product, where sustainability and high quality go hand in hand.

Waste reduction is essential for the climate

FINEO glass is 100% recyclable and without any loss of quality. In 2020, 97.1% of all waste was reused, either by the company itself, or by suppliers or contractors. In addition, 1% was incinerated, from which energy was extracted. In 2020, only 1.9% went to the landfill. Between 1998 and 2020, parent company AGC Glass Europe succeeded in reducing the amount of waste going to landfill by 95%. FINEO will be waste neutral within a few years.

Lower emissions from smarter eco-friendly transport solutions

FINEO glass is lighter and thinner than double or triple glazing. This means that more glass sheets are taken per journey and so fewer lorries need to take to the road. Thanks to Belgium’s central location, logistically efficient exports are possible to neighbouring countries with minimum emissions. As a result, the emissions from the transport of FINEO are much lower than those of other manufacturers

AGC, the producers of Fineo vacuum glazing, are committed to a zero waste future

As Fineo can be retrofitted into the timber windows frames of period homes and buildings, it means the preservation of authentic aesthetic and the reduction of waste caused by dumping perfectly good frames.
