IndiNature

Our IndiBreathe system not only insulates buildings, it stores carbon in them.

IndiNature is an innovative leader in bio-based construction systems. We use leading science + traditional crops to bring industrial scale change to the climate, environment and people’s health.

100% bio-based construction system manufacturers. Radically low carbon, easy-build, healthy, high-performing, affordable, energy saving, zero plastics, zero toxins, zero waste – made from renewable local crops. Highly circular business model.

Unlike our high-carbon competitors, our system is ‘better-than-zero carbon’ which means it actually stores more carbon than the carbon used to make it (via photosynthesis in the very fast growing, renewable crops). Being plastic and toxin free, it is also ‘better-than-zero waste’ which means it can be reprocessed or reused, not merely recycled – or safely bio-degraded right on site, saving landfill charges. This is part of our circular business model: renewable resources, which can be… renewed! And best of all, we can sell at a lower cost of eco competitors if we have to.​

​Our Story

IndiNature is an innovative leader in bio-based materials and construction products. We use leading science and traditional crops to bring industrial-scale change to the climate, the environment and people’s health.

Industrial Scale Change

Welcome the new era of cleantech and biotech in construction.

The company’s co-founders started IndiNature because there is a need for global industrial scale change in the types of products we put in our buildings.

There is a growing urgency for products which capture, rather than create, carbon; for products which contain no plastics and no toxins; and for products which don’t end up in landfill.

When studying sustainable architecture, co-founder Scott carried out lab-based research into natural alternative insulations and found they also have big performance advantages over conventional ones. He then used his family home as a case study – completely gutting, rebuilding and extending it using the best natural materials on the market.

The three-bed home ended up with a ¼ of the average heating bill and now keeps humidities and temperatures even, comfortable and healthy all year long. Warm in winter, cool in summer – naturally.

But the products were hard to find, expensive and imported – and even the natural fibre insulation contained plastic.

IndiNature was founded in 2016 to make natural insulations without plastics and to make them available locally around the globe – on an industrial scale and price competitive.

IndiNature’s parent company is based in Edinburgh – leading on materials innovation including biotech R&D and novel construction products.

The first subsidiary is a high capacity insulation factory we call our Hempworks – using traditional industrial hemp crops – in the Scottish Borders.

Industrial hemp is a historic crop in the UK – it was grown for its durability and strength for the Navy’s rigging and anchor ropes and sails.

We are proud to help revive this exceptionally sustainable crop in the UK and globally.

We’re here to make the world a better place.

We have a planet to cool

The future

IndiNature has a global strategy to meet growing – and urgent – policy and market demands to reduce carbon and plastic in the construction industry.

The company’s innovations are ready at the right time, leading the way in the circular bio-economy to reverse climate change at scale.

Join us in the new era of cleantech and biotech…
