Sustainability

ECOBOARD Audit Results Vince’s operations have been remotely audited by Sustainable Surf. The company has effective processes to ensure Qualified Materials are used in boards using both ECOBOARD Gold Level and Level One labels.

Comprehensive records of the audit results are held by Sustainable Surf.

Audit date 17th July 2018
Brand Sustainability In 2006 Vince began to find solutions to reduce their impact on the environment. For example, use biofoam and greenfoam with linen fabric and epoxy resin.

Then with the arrival of the first bio-based resins and cellulose tissue they developed their VGREEN technology.

The factory has made a range of commitments to reduce it’s environmental impact:

  • No use of acetone. Plant-based alternatives in use (disolgreen, surfasolve, polyclean).
  • No solvent-based paint. Only water-based paints.
  • No finishing glosscoat. Boards are sanded without touching the fiber.
  • Industrial dust and vapor filtration  (extraction turbines with double filtration).
  • Significant insulation of workshop & sales area, as well as the use of a heat pump which further reduces energy consumption.
  • Recycling or reuse of all cartons and other packaging.
