Roofspace Strives for Sustainable Start to 2021
At Roofspace Solutions, we want to show that there is a sustainable way to build new homes by combining the latest in modern methods of construction with measures that offset any carbon generated in the process.
That’s why in January 2021 we committed to planting a tree for every pair of i-Roofs we install, working with MoreTrees to achieve this. In fact, we’re hoping that will translate to 2,000 new trees in the next 12 months which would remove an estimated 600 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
This also helps us take another step towards our goal of zero emissions by 2050, a target outlined in the Saint-Gobain roadmap. It highlights the concrete steps we and our OSS partners are taking over the next 10 years to improve sustainability in every aspect of our operations.
So, whether you’re a housebuilder, architect or specifier looking to explore new environmentally-friendly ways of building, find out more about our designed, manufactured and installed panelised roofing solution i-Roof product.
With the complex build of the roof happening off-site, the structure is installed and delivered in just one day, saving up to five weeks’ build time for a pair of roofs.
Our Managing Director, Paul Terry, said: “There is an ever growing need to protect the environment before it’s too late. Our actions speak louder than words, so I believe this initiative shows that we’ve tied our success as an organisation to our commitment to sustainability, as they both go hand in hand.
“In addition to planting new trees for every pair our roofs we install, we’ll also continue to find new ways to champion the environment, along with our commitment to reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill and minimising the energy used per unit.”
Niki Tibble, co-founder at MoreTrees, said: “Now is the time to take action to tackle climate change. Roofspace Solutions will be supporting our tree planting partners’ projects across the world and making a difference to the future of our planet. Traditionally, construction and housebuilding have had a negative impact on the environment, so it’s fantastic to see that new, sustainable methods are available.”
