Every litre of fuel oil or cubic metre of natural gas that can be saved through using advanced glazing reduces CO2 emissions and benefits the environment.

Every litre of fuel oil or cubic metre of natural gas that can be saved through using advanced glazing reduces CO2 emissions and benefits the environment. Fossil fuel resources are also saved by reducing their consumption and in addition, almost all glass types are one hundred per cent recyclable because it is made from natural raw materials. Due to its natural ingredients and superior energy balancing properties, glass should not be overlooked or dismissed as a viable material in globally recognised certification programs for sustainable and environmentally friendly building.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a leading system in this field. Other systems, include DGNB or BREEAM. Buildings realised in compliance with these systems use resources more efficiently than conventional techniques because they take every phase in the life cycle of a building into account – starting with design and construction to renovation and eventually, demolition and disposal.
