We’re please to announce the publication of Insulation for Sustainability – A Guide. A collaboration with Insulation Manufacturers Association (IMA), this guide was produced to help design teams navigate insulation choices and their technical implications in this quest to create low-impact, future-proof buildings.
The document shows in depth the role the built environment has to play in reducing energy emissions quickly and effectively, principally through the use of energy efficient building elements, known as a ‘fabric first’ approach. It demonstrates how thermal insulation, such as PIR and PUR, are amongst the most sustainable forms of insulation and one of the best ways to reduce energy demand and cut CO2. This will ensure buildings are built to be resilient in managing climate change.
