The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products

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
