Established in 2002, Ecodek have been manufacturing composite decking and fencing since 2004. As the UK’s market leader in Wood Polymer Composite decking materials, we manufactured over 1 million linear metres of decking in 2017, consuming 3600 tonnes of recycled wood and plastic.
In addition, we have achieved “carbon negative” status for the production of our composite decking system. A life-cycle assessment programme, undertaken by the Bio Composites Centre of Bangor University, considered production of the decking on a cradle to factory gate basis, accounting for all significant materials, transport, energy use and packaging inputs. Results showed that production of ecodek® actually had a net effect of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere rather than adding to it – hence carbon negative – a huge achievement in modern manufacturing and one that clearly illustrates our company’s environmental credentials.
As a manufacturer of a range of products made from 95% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable, Ecodek by its very nature is a champion of sustainability. As a company we strive to promote and engender a culture of sustainability both across our suppliers, site management and employees.While the company ethos is to maintain high credentials for all of this, we are always looking for ways to improve our methods and we are working towards a Zero to Landfill policy.
