When it is possible to combine both the known benefits of insulation in use with the fact that the material providing that insulation is natural and renewable – from an environmental perspective “it’s as good as it gets”.

Heating our homes and buildings accounts for around 50% of CO
2 emissions and that doesn’t include energy consumed in manufacturing the materials used to construct the building.

The Government has set ambitious targets on the UK’s CO
2 emissions with a long-term goal to reduce emissions by 60 per cent by 2050. The introduction of the Code for Sustainable Homes by the government in 2006 was designed to set new standards on sustainability and carbon emissions beyond those laid out in Building Regulations.
Indeed all new homes built since May 2008 are required to be rated against the code with that rating included in the Home Improvement Pack (HIP).

Reducing the energy we use to heat our homes and buildings and increasing our use of both renewable energy sources and renewable construction materials is becoming an increasingly fundamental consideration in the buildings we construct, buy or refurbish.
