Sustainability and success go hand-in-hand

We believe that in order to create a more resilient future, the world needs confident designers and builders who understand how to achieve sustainability. We also believe this goal can be achieved without sacrificing the bottom line or project timelines. That's why we treat every conversation as an opportunity to understand how sustainability can go hand-in-hand with profits and success. Our passion for educating combined with our innovative geogrid solutions allow you to design and build with confidence. When that happens, we all win.

How geogrids contribute to sustainability

It seems counterintuitive that putting plastics in the ground could be a sustainable solution. While some plastics pollute our environment, geogrid is actually part of the solution rather than the problem. When used in a construction project, geogrids can:

  • Extend road service life
  • Reduce consumption of aggregate
  • Conserve water resources
  • Minimize land disturbance
  • Control soil erosion
  • Protect groundwater
  • Reduce on-site excavation and fill placement
  • Reduce transportation requirements and associated emissions
  • Reduce maintenance requirements

Now more than ever, governments and companies are accepting accountability for the active role they play in encouraging sustainable business practices. Thanks to the benefits mentioned above, our solutions can help your project meet or exceed stringent environmental requirements.


Environmental Product Declarations
