See below how Acoustic panels by Ecophon can contribute to BREEAM criteria: Reduction of energy use and carbon emissions
Ecophon products, composed of sustainable materials, have very good light reflectance (85%) that minimizes the need for artificial lighting, which in turn lowers energy consumption.
This criteria recognizes improvements in the energy performance of the building above national building regulations in relation to heating and cooling energy demand, primary energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions (using an approved building energy calculation software), Reducing energy demand has to be taken into account from the building design and/or through the systems specification.

The light reflectance of the surfaces in a room is crucial for maximizing the use of both incident daylight and artificial light.
The high light reflectance of Ecophon's products (85%) allows you to reduce the amount of artificial light compared to when products with lower reflectance are used, and thereby reduce the energy consumption.
