Whole Life Value

Whole life value embraces a complete lifecycle assessment, balancing the total impacts of raw materials, through manufacture to products in use and back to raw materials again.

And at every turn of this lifecycle clay, as a plentiful, inert, 100% natural material and Hepworth’s considered approach to quarrying, transportation, production and recycling combine to optimise whole-life-value outcomes.

The natural attributes of clay, our sustainable manufacturing process certified to BS EN ISO 14001, its low installed risk profile and high lifetime expectancy all contribute to clay’s exceptional whole life value rating.
