At Techrete, we see our involvement in architectural cladding as an opportunity to create and to add aesthetically to the built environment, without in any way jeopardising the broader environment. We promote sustainability both in the design and function of our products and in the processes used in their manufacture.
In all our activities and practices, we will continuously work towards enhancing, conserving and protecting all aspects of the local and global environment.
Our approach is to:
Keep fully informed of all relevant legislation, standards and best practices within the industry and monitor our operations to ensure compliance
Meet all regulatory and consent requirements pertaining to our business
Work with subcontractors, suppliers and clients to encourage environmental awareness and sustainability and to identify and to share best practice and ways of reducing negative environmental impacts
Manage our buildings and construction sites in an environmentally sensitive manner
Reduce and strive to eliminate hazardous and nuisance releases to air, water and landfill
Reduce consumption of energy, fuel and materials and minimise waste
Operate a thoughtful buying policy, giving preference to materials from sustainable sources and services which are less damaging to the environment
