Sustainable and perfect surfaces

Dalapro offers sustainable filling products for today’s and tomorrow’s homes and buildings. With a high proportion of Swedish raw materials, climate-neutral production and recycled packaging materials, we are driving the development of climate-smart surfaces. Our products make it easy to assume responsibility for the work environment, filler quality and environmental impact. We are a part of Saint-Gobain – with more than 350 years’ experience of innovative materials and building solutions.

Dalapro Sustainable Surfaces

Sustainable surface solutions for the buildings of the future

The construction and civil engineering industry accounts for one fifth of the country’s climate impact. Sweden aims to be fossil-free by 2045, and even from 2022 there are new climate declaration requirements for buildings.
At the same time, more and more directives are being issued regarding fossil road maps, stricter requirements for sustainable material solutions and increased demand for information about the content and environmental impact of products.

Dalapro works on environmental improvements throughout the product’s life cycle, from raw material to waste management. We offer leading surface solutions from Swedish raw materials and climate-neutral production. Our goal is to have climate-positive production and to be totally climate-positive, throughout the value chain.

Sustainable buckets

Packaging accounts for a large proportion of a product’s environmental impact. This is why we are gradually replacing our buckets with more environment-friendly buckets. Dalapro’s new buckets consist of 100% recyclable material, are made of at least 90% recycled plastic and generate 56% less carbon dioxide emissions from raw material to factory – without compromising on the excellent product properties.


Climate-neutral production

Dalapro’s ready-mixed filler products are manufactured in climate-neutral* factories in Glanshammar and Sala. We have achieved this by phasing out all fossil fuels and vehicles from our factories. We have also installed a large solar panel system that supplies green electricity to both production and the community. This means that our factories are actually helping avoid unnecessary emissions from fossil energy sources. 

*According to an assessment in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, Scanspac’s production is at zero CO₂e in Scope 1 and Scope 2.


A good work environment

Dalapro’s products and tools are produced with a strong focus on a safe, secure and pleasant work environment for the user. We were the first to launch a light filler (1981), a spray filler for a light paint spray (1990) and a roller filler (2011). We have followed up on this trend with innovative solutions in terms of function and user-friendliness, in both products and packaging. There are safety data sheets for all our products. This makes it easy to do a good job in a healthy, toxin-free work environment – while contributing to increased sustainability at the same time.

As part of Saint-Gobain, we are continuously developing new solutions with a focus on sustainability. Here are a few examples:

  • Our ready-mixed filler products are manufactured in climate-neutral production.
  • 90% of the content of our ready-mixed filler products is locally produced.
  • Our filler buckets are made of recycled plastic.
  • We have reduced the amount of plastic in our sacks.
  • We have had a new treatment plant since 2020.
  • IBC containers are reused.
  • We have created eco-labels for our filler products.
  • Our products contribute to good ergonomics and a toxin-free work environment.

Our eco-labels

Dalapro Symbols

To make it easy for our customers to make good environmental choices, we have created our own unique eco-labels, which we work with in combination with other accepted labels.

Environment-friendlier plastic buckets
Dalapro’s new buckets consist of 100% recyclable material, are made of at least 90% recycled plastic and generate 56% less carbon dioxide emissions from raw material to factory. This label has been developed for Dalapro.

Climate-smart sacks
Dalapro gives you, the customer, the opportunity to make climate-smart choices through your material and product selection, for example through our 15-litre sacks, with a packaging solution that has 40% less climate impact than a standard bucket of the same size.

Climate-neutral production
Dalapro’s ready-mixed filler products are manufactured in climate-neutral* factories in Glanshammar and Sala. We have achieved this by phasing out all fossil fuels and vehicles from our factories. We have also installed a large solar panel system that supplies green electricity to both production and the community. This means that our factories are actually helping avoid unnecessary emissions from fossil energy sources. 

*According to an assessment in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, Scanspac’s production is at zero CO₂e in Scope 1 and Scope 2.


Nordic Ecolabel
The Nordic Ecolabel is the Nordic region’s official ecolabel, which is managed in Sweden by Miljömärkning Sverige AB on behalf of the government. They examine the environmental impact of goods and services throughout their life cycle, from raw material to waste, and set requirements for function and quality.

EPD
EPD stands for Environmental Product Declaration. The Environmental Product Declaration is an independently verified and registered document that openly reports the product’s potential environmental impact.

M1
M1 is a voluntary emission classification for building materials. The M1 label means that the product has been tested in an independent and impartial laboratory and has met the specified criteria. M1 stands for low emissions.
