Green Deal could reduce carbon footprint of buildings
Amongst the strategies announced by the new Government has been the Green Deal which is intended to encourage people to make substantial improvements to the performance of their properties, and repay the cost through their energy bills.
It is a step which can be viewed as fitting with the whole idea of localism, and the community taking responsibility for its own future.Following on from this, the Chief Construction Adviser to the government, Paul Morrell, addressed visitors to the BEST show in mid-October regarding the need to throw out the hierarchical culture, and instead urged builders, specifiers, and other construction professionals to work together to find real solutions to reducing the carbon footprint of buildings.
Such ambitions are not only achievable, but are already being implemented by responsible companies such as Plastic Surgeon: indeed, we not only provide a service which demonstrably cuts waste, but use technology like Mobile Finisher to help our finishers work more efficiently, thereby cutting fuel consumption.
