Polygood® plastic panels embody our commitment to a circular economy and a sustainable future. Our material is sourced from 100% certified recycled plastic stock, can be returned at the end of its useful life, and with our free take-back programme, used panels and cuttings can even be sent for recycling to be melted-down and used anew.

made from 100% recycled plastic

Polygood® is 100% recyclable and made from 100% recycled plastic. Each pattern in the collection is as beautiful as they are durable and kind to the environment.

Our Commitment To The Circular Economy

Polygood® is a certified sustainable material. Our ethos is rooted in transparency and practices that adhere to strict environmental standards and certifications. This ensures even large-scale architecture and design projects meet industry environmental standards.

Cradle to Cradle®
Bronze certification

We take pride in being the only manufacturer of a recycled plastic material that holds Cradle to Cradle® certification. This rigorous, third-party program evaluates and recognises Polygood® as a C2C material that makes positive environmental and social impacts.

Bronze level certification means The Good Plastic Company has met specific criteria and standards when it comes to the reduction of waste and hazardous chemicals, more efficient uses of resources and the reuse of materials, energy efficiency, and social responsibility. We have assessed the environmental impacts of Polygood® and its manufacturing process.

We have also demonstrated that an active environmental policy is implemented at every manufacturing facility. We are further evaluated on implementation and how we have met environmental performance targets across five critical sustainability categories:

Material health
Water stewardship
Social fairness
Renewable energy & carbon management
Material reutilization

Environmental Product
Declaration (EPD)

After a thorough Life Cycle Assessment, The Good Plastic Company was granted a verified Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Polygood®. EPD serves as an invaluable asset in securing LEED certification for your projects.

Based on internationally recognised standards, it offers data and increased transparency around the product’s environmental impacts, supporting whole lifecycle management. For companies dedicated to making an impact, our EPD serves as an invaluable asset in securing LEED certification for your projects.

ISO standards

Our environmental footprint matters, along with our production and management processes. Performing a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) follows our impact from cradle to grave for sustainability and operational reporting. We maintain quality and management systems in accordance with internationally recognised ISO standards, the leading international standards on LCA. These are detailed here.

ISO 9001: Quality Management

Products consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements while striving for continuous

ISO 45001: Occupational Health and Safety

conserving resources, and minimising pollution.

Low VOC material

Our VOC A+ rating means our products have minimal volatile organic compound emissions, contributing to healthier indoor environments. Polygood® aligns with BREEAM standards for construction materials in the UK and EU, making it a low-VOC emitting material.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are a set of substances belonging to different chemical classes that evaporate more or less quickly at room temperature: benzene, styrene, toluene, trichloroethylene, and other highly volatile substances such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde. Products are labelled with a VOC emissions classification based on emissions tests. This label provides information on emissions of volatile substances that pose a toxic threat during inhalation of indoor air on a scale from A+ (very low emissions) to C (high emissions).

Global warming potential

Polygood® has a GWP (global warming potential) of only 487 kg per ton, which is eight times lower than using virgin polystyrene and six times more eco-friendly than other solid surface materials. Based on this data — which includes CO₂, CH₄ N₂O, and other gases — we continue to benchmark against other surface material manufacturers to understand how effective we are and how we need to improve.

No hazardous substances

Assessments show Polygood® is free of halogen, mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, chromium, chlorine, fluorine, and bromine under the following standard by the Deutsches Institut fur Normung E.V. (DIN):

DIN EN 14582: Characterization of waste

We have conducted comprehensive chemical content tests at the TUV Rheinland laboratory, which holds ISO 17025 accreditation for testing and calibration laboratories. These tests are a testament to our dedication to delivering safe and environmentally responsible products.
