Sustainability & compliance

Sustainability and care for the environment are now fundamental parts of everyday life and growing concerns for the global community. At Encasement, we not only embrace these principles through the design and manufacture of our products but also in the way we do business to minimise our impact on the environment, wherever possible.

The responsibility for sourcing, managing and utilising sustainable products in the construction sector lies with everyone within the industry and to help that process we have compiled a range of information.

Playing our part – climate change
