Steve Duke, Sales Director – Refurbishment & Contracting at Knauf Insulation, commented: ñWinning this award is a real testament to all the hard work that is carried out by our teams across the company. We truly understand the importance of upholding strong relationships with our customers and as such we are constantly investing significant effort into closely matching their requirements.î
Knauf Insulation has recently introduced a number of initiatives to ensure it is the ‘supplier of choice’, including extensive marketing and training support, adapting to the changing needs of customers and offering a comprehensive portfolio of whole house solutions.
The winning entry also highlighted Knauf Insulation’s commitment to the environment by creating energy efficient buildings.
The company has recognised that Local Authorities can have a dramatic effect on the energy that people and businesses use and as such, the company developed a pilot study to measure the local energy and energy efficiency agendas of councils in England: the Local Authority Energy Index (LAEI).
LAEI considered how 25 chosen Local Authorities have worked to influence the energy efficiency agendas, along with ranking their work in this area using a combination of quantitative and qualitative measures to produce an overall index of performance in energy efficiency.
This highlighted best practice and explored barriers that exist for Councils trying to improve well-being and reduce energy bills for residents, businesses and their own estate.
The 2015 National Green Deal and ECO Awards took place in Manchester on the 19th June, recognising the excellent work the energy efficiency sector is doing whilst encouraging best practice throughout the industry.
