The industry needs to maintain its firm focus on sustainability and contributing to overall energy efficiency. This is a field where insulation has still a lot in store for the construction market as a whole.
There is a recognised gap between current and cost-effective insulation.
An investment of €100,000 which covered audit, insulation instalment and material costs, allowed to achieve approximately €405,000 of energy cost savings in the first year and €505,000 in the following years. Payback? Merely two and a half months.
The construction industry as a whole has traditionally been slower to adapt new trends well-established in other markets. Customer experience and digitalisation are fine examples of how the construction brands can differentiate themselves in a highly competitive environment.
2015 was turning point in the climate change discussion due to the COP21 climate change agreement in Paris. There is a need for robust climate action on a national level, and I am cautiously optimistic to believe that the COP21 agreement leads to more concrete actions such as changes in regulations. Even though energy consumption in new buildings is on a good level, there is still a lot of work to be done with the most of the existing building stock.
The challenges ahead for insulation companies? To focus even more on solutions that support sustainability and explain the benefits of using stone wool as the best solution for energy efficient and safe solutions.
