Why Use Sustainable Building Products
The benefits the ASBP aims to deliver whilst encouraging a move to more sustainable products are substantial, not just for the built environment but also to the wider society. As yet these benefits are largely un-tapped and have not yet been quantified, but include:
- Higher performing and healthier buildings.
- Buildings with a substantially reduced carbon footprint.
- A more resource efficient (in terms of raw material utilisation, waste, and energy) construction products industry.
- More robust supply chains with greater resource security
- Reduced transport inefficiencies
- Increased economic activity within product supply chains
- Added value for UK’s natural (mineral and bio-based) resources
- Improved understanding of the relationship between people, buildings and nature
