The statistics cannot be ignored – buildings are responsible for nearly half of the UK’s carbon emissions, half of its water consumption, around a third of its landfill waste and a quarter of all raw materials used in the economy.
With the government setting national targets for housebuilding, gas emission reductions and pushing for buildings that are ‘zero carbon’ – light gauge steel is perfectly positioned to play a crucial role in meeting and delivering these targets.
After water, steel is the most recycled product on our planet, with research showing that 99% of structural steelwork is reused or recycled. The steel that EOS use is highly recyclable, providing little onsite waste and thus enabling a more sustainable future.
