Aluminium; the green metal for a sustainable future in construction

The construction industry in the UK has a monumental impact on both the economy and the environment, and the need to balance these two factors to achieve sustainable growth has been recognised. All stakeholders in our industry must take responsibility for working towards a clean and green future and AliDeck has embraced this challenge.

The positive and negative impact of construction

In The Real Face of Construction 2020, a report analysing the “true value of the built environment”, The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) determined that construction in the UK contributes up to 15% of our nation’s GDP and directly supports 2.3 million jobs.

With such a profound impact on the economy it should be no surprise, then, that construction is also responsible for a large proportion of global carbon emissions. Reducing that negative environmental impact through better practices in construction materials and manufacturing is key to sustainability.
