Global Insulation Logistics Ltd. takes its responsibility to protect and enhance the environment very seriously. We have made a commitment to address sustainability issues with a high regard for openness and clarity surrounding the products we select and incorporate within our projects.
Within our scope we have addressed many elements, none more so than benchmarking the environmental impacts of our selected products.
The specialist composite panels we select for our fire rated and security solutions currently score a Green Guide rating of A. This means that we can offer a state of the art solution that is 100% recyclable.
This policy of selection ensures that that there is no waste during manufacture, construction or end of life phases of projects, as these materials can be independently recycled thereby diverting waste from landfill.
