The past 20 years have seen a growing realisation that the current method of construction is unsustainable. From the loss of biodiversity with the felling of rainforests or over fishing to the negative effect our consumption patterns are having on the environment and the climate.
A widely-used and accepted international definition of sustainable development is: 'development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs' - Globally we are not even meeting the needs of the present let alone considering the needs of future generations.
We need to make a decisive move toward more sustainable development. Not just because it is the right thing to do, but also because it is in our own long-term best interests. It offers the best hope for the future. Whether at school, in the home or at work, we all have a part to play. Our small everyday actions add up to make a big difference.
ecofinishes recognise this, and has set this as our guiding principle. We offer sustainable materials in all contracted services and we will not compromise on price or quality when it comes to getting the job done. Therefore if you are considering a development project, or are carrying one out you must consider using sustainable construction materials.
Contact us today, no matter what stage of construction you are at.
Whether you are an architect, client, developer, materials specifier, project manager or construction director we would like to hear from you. If you want to do the right thing for your environment, the right thing for your building and the right thing for the future of our children, specify ecofinishes when carrying out your project.
