Rockwool join Jewson green group

Published: 26 August 2008
Insulation people Rockwool have joined the Green Procurement Group, set up by builders merchant group Jewson.
The 12 members of the Green Procurement Group have made a commitment to help deliver greater transparency in the supply chain, introduce carbon labelling and achieve a 20% reduction in packaging by 2012.

The group, which also includes Velux, Fischer Fixings, Visqueen Building Products, Hepworth Building Products, Henderson, ICI and Tarmac aims to reduce the industry's carbon footprint by decreasing the amount of waste materials at all levels of the supply chain.

Hans Schreuder, managing director of Rockwool, says: "It's about time the construction industry cleaned up its act, the amount of material waste and surplus packaging in the industry is beyond acceptable. The formation of the Green Procurement Group demonstrates the industry's commitment to such important and pressing issues.

"Working with other leading industry suppliers and manufacturers, Rockwool will be looking at to how waste and surplus packaging can be significantly reduced across the board."

All Rockwool's insulation products are manufactured using stone wool, one of the most environmentally friendly and energy efficient construction products available.
