Boards & Substrates
Buildings have a profound effect on our environment; more and more of our clients are recognising this and hence the rationale for using the environmentally-friendly building and decorating materials. The following information helps to illustrate this:
- buildings are responsible for a large proportion of the CO2 emissions in this country - 50% result from energy used in buildings; 10% from their construction;
- The Environment Agency's trend data shows that around 2.5 million tonnes of C&D (Construction and Demolition) waste was handled in 2007 by waste facilities in Wales. Nearly half of this waste was landfilled, and only eight years of landfill space remains in Wales;
- the development, use and maintenance of buildings result in the consumption of 6 tonnes of building materials per person per annum in the UK. if we all choose low-impact materials, we could really make an enormous difference!
