Global environmental consciousness is driving consumers towards more resource-minded products. Reduction of green house gases has become a worldwide effort. As part of our wider sustainability policy, ADVANSA now provides consumers with an option for eco-responsibility that doesn’t compromise comfort, by choosing our lower carbon footprint technology for filling fibres when purchasing bedding products. Through eco-friendly bedding with a lower CO2 footprint we are one step closer to building a sustainable future.
Global Warming Potential (GWP)
Sophisticated recycling technology and state-of-the-art industrial processes transform polymer based on post consumer PET into the same high-quality polyester fi bre that has always qualifi ed for use in our branded bedding products. This means a lower carbon footprint with no comprise on comfort.
Non Renewable Energy Use is the sum of all energy used for the whole life cyle based on non-renewable resources. A non-renewable resource is a natural resource like fossil fuels which cannot be produced, grown or used on a scale which can sustain it’s consumption rate. Global Warming Potential is a characterisation model developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) aimed at measuring the greenhouse effect caused by CO2 emissions, also known as carbon footprint.
Non Renewable Energy Use (NREU)
Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) is conducted using a cradle to grave approach with system expansion methodology, where the use stage has been excluded.

A design from ADVANSA created to communicate the importance of environmental protection and consumers direct responsibility. This communication tool is available for the full eco friendly range of fillings.
In addition to its sustainable recycled fibre production, ADVANSA also offers the possibility for carbonneutral fibres. Carbon compensation, equivalent to the remaining Co2 emissions, is achieved through investments in ecological programs in partnership with the CarbonNeutral® Company. Carbon credits are invested in projects such as the reduction of deforestation in Borneo rain-forest to protect biodiversity, investment in wind power in India or cook-stoves in Mexico.
