Sustainability

With the impact of traffic on the environment being an important contributing factor in attracting new passengers to public transport, fitting vehicles with sustainably-conscious components shows a demonstrable commitment to the environment.

Raw materials

At Altro, sustainability drives the choices we make. It starts with the raw materials we choose to go into our products; environmentally friendly raw materials which enable us to produce ortho-phlalate-free vinyl floors containing bio-plasticisers.

Recycling

Our commitment to sustainability has also enabled us to become the first manufacturer to recycle traditional safety flooring in-house. Altro flooring even contains recycled particulates including post-consumer recycled glass, which would otherwise be destined for landfill.

Since 2014 we’ve achieved 0% waste to landfill, an achievement to be proud of. And to further support our ongoing vision – and those of our customers – we engineer our flooring to be as lightweight as possible, without compromising on safety, to reduce vehicle fuel consumption.
