A new feature of this years Greenbuild EXPO 9th and 10th Mai in Manchester Central (Stand C3) will be the newly established Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP), who will exhibit, with six of their member companies, examples of the type of products it encourages, which bring benefits of sustainability, affordability and health to the building supply chain.
The ASBP is a not for profit organisation which aims to accelerate the identification, specification and use of sector leading and demonstrably sustainable building products. The ASBP believes that the UK construction industry, as a substantial consumer of fossil and non-fossil resources, needs to rapidly move to more sustainable and more resource efficient products.
ASBP member companies present at Greenbuild will include Ecological Building Systems, Natural Building Technologies, Foamglas, Black Mountain Insulation, Steico, and Natureplus. These companies will feature leading products with benefits that reflect the key campaigns of the ASBP such as, the low carbon benefit of bio-based products containing sequestered carbon, resource efficiency in production, use and end-of life, the use of sustainable and abundant raw materials, low embodied energy and high recycled content.
The ASBP is also committed to the promotion of the principal that environmental claims should be proved through the adoption of rigorous, holistic and third party accredited sustainability standards. For this reason the ASBP will be representing the natureplus standard which is Europes leading construction product Eco-label.
