Eurocell is committed to providing energy efficient, sustainable PVC-U products to support the drive towards carbon zero construction.
Everyone has an opinion about plastic and the effect it has on our planet, so we hit the streets and canvassed public opinion on issues around plastic and recycling. This video is what the public had to say on plastic.
Following our video on opinions about plastic, we asked members of the public if they knew that PVC-U windows could be recycled.
An amazing 99% of people asked didn't know - see their reactions in our follow up video.
Sustainability is a key issue for everyone involved in the construction industry. In the UK, buildings are responsible for producing around half the nation’s total CO2 emissions. It’s for this reason the government has set strict targets across the sector with the aim of reducing its carbon footprint and encouraging more efficient, sustainable practices. The result of this is that by 2018, all new build homes and commercial properties will be carbon neutral. As the UK's largest manufacturer of UPVC building components, Eurocell are here to answer the needs of the industry with our range of high performance, energy efficient products.
Careful planning and design play a major role in reducing a building's long-term environmental impact. The same can also be said for the products used in their construction.
As approximately 20% of a building's heat is lost through its windows, we believe it's our job to constantly look for ways we can deliver better, more sustainable performance – both with our products and our company practices. We are proud to say that when it comes to sustainability, we are leading the field.
