The UK construction industry requires 400 million tonnes of material each year. Of that, 60 million tonnes end up going straight to the tip and landfill sites. This waste is generated due to excessive and unnecessary packaging which is more to with marketing than product protection, over ordering and inappropriately storage.
The government has a new sustainable construction strategy which is aiming for zero waste landfill by 2020.
At ICG Roofing we are promoting sustainable building practices, rather than adding to landfill. We sell branded products from various manufacturers at a reduced price, most of the time 50% OFF RRP! We ship to all the UK and Europe, our products are professionally packed and dispatched in a timely manner, normally same day if the order is placed before 3pm. We utilise various pallet delivery networks, Parcel Force and Collection Plus.
We have found that the most efficient way to achieve our goal of a more sustainable business within the construction industry is by reducing waste and landfill material, by limiting the amount of packaging. Packaging plays a huge role in protecting our products in transit, but it also ends up as part of the problem. At ICG we Reuse, Reduce and Recycle! This allows us to make saving in cost, materials, energy, and transportation.
This type of Value Engineering is the future to a healthier plant, which you contribute to when you shop with us.
It also allows us to pass on the SAVINGS to you, our customer!
