Award recognition for energy efficient building products

2018 Sustainable Building Awards Winner

We are delighted to receive yet another award recognising our excellence within the industry and our energy efficient building products.

The latest accolade comes as part of the Sustainable Building 2018 Awards, by BUILD magazine, and sees REHAU presented with the Best Polymer-Based Building Products Manufacturer Award for 2018 and for Excellence in Energy Efficient Building Products.

We remain a leader within the polymer industry and have taken great steps to ensure the business works to achieve sustainability targets and creates a circular economy, as well as offering energy efficient products.

We have designed and manufactured energy efficient products for more than 70 years, and have long achieved Passivhaus standards. But this alone is not enough.

We have also made the ongoing commitment to contributing to the sustainable building industry. Key to this is the REHAU PVCR factory in Manchester, which recycles used PVC for it to be utilised in the TOTAL70 co-extruded profile for windows and doors. This product uses up to 100% post-consumer waste within its core. In addition our factories and sites operate using only renewable energy, changes and developments to logistics and we've aligned ourselves with the targets set by Vinyl Plus.

This latest award comes after we were shortlisted in the BusinessGreen Awards 2018 for our third annual Sustainability Report that details our Fit for the Future strategy, and became a finalist in the National Recycling Awards 2018 for product of the year.

This award is great testament to our ongoing hard work and it’s fantastic to continue to get this recognition.”
