 EnviroBuild named finalist in 2023 Irish Construction Industry Awards

EnviroBuild is pleased to announce that it has received a nomination for the 2023 Irish Construction Industry Awards. Along with seven other construction businesses across Ireland, EnviroBuild have been chosen as a finalist in the hotly contested “Excellence in Sustainability” category. The winner will be declared on 2 November this year.

The Irish Construction Industry Awards have celebrated excellence in the built environment since its inception in 2014. Dedicated to recognising and encouraging businesses that make tangible positive change in the construction sector, the awards are the pinnacle of recognition for contractors, businesses, teams, consultants, and projects that demonstrate originality and innovation within the Irish construction industry.

EnviroBuild have also recently been announced as finalists at the 2023 Pro Landscaper Sustainability Awards, as well as the Irish Construction Excellence Awards (ICE Awards) in the Construction Product Innovation – Building Fabric category. The company will be present at FutureScape 2023, where the ceremony is due to take place between 21-22 November, with a display stand showcasing its innovative sustainable solutions as well as to receive their award nomination.

The grand ceremony for the Irish Construction Industry Awards will include a formal dinner and live entertainment, and will take place on Thursday, 2 November 2023, as a Black-Tie Ceremony at the Mansion House, Dublin, DO2 WF63.

EnviroBuild's nomination in the Excellence in Sustainability category puts them in direct competition with industry giants like BAM and Cairn, underlining the company's dedication to pushing the boundaries of sustainable construction practices.

Dr. Aidan Bell, EnviroBuild said: “It is such an honour to be nominated for the “Excellence in Sustainability” category at the 2023 Irish Construction Industry Awards. We at EnviroBuild are beyond proud to be pushing Ireland’s construction industry onto the world map and hope that our sustainable practices will encourage people and businesses to make more eco-friendly choices to protect our planet.”

Being shortlisted alongside such major players is a testament to EnviroBuild's innovative approach to sustainability and its impact on the construction industry. Its nomination can be primarily attributed to its pioneering use of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). These declarations are a critical tool that helps in making informed decisions regarding product development and educates the industry on sustainable practices. EnviroBuild's commitment to sustainability extends beyond just their products; it's a core principle that guides their every action.

About EnviroBuild’s Environmental Impact

EnviroBuild is committed to reducing its environmental impact, with an emphasis on minimising its impact before resorting to offsetting. This approach ensures that its offsetting efforts have a positive impact on the environment.

The business’ commitment extends to utilising recycled materials, where designs go above and beyond industry standards. 90% recycled materials are employed in EnviroBuild’s composite products, sourced from FSC-certified wood, and plastic lumber is crafted from 100% recycled material. In addition to using recycled materials, EnviroBuild is dedicated to using 100% renewable energy for its composite products and plastic lumber, resulting in significant reductions in CO2 emissions.

In collaboration with its suppliers, EnviroBuild has taken strides to reduce environmental impact, such as transitioning to renewable energy for its composite decking, cladding, and fencing. This partnership exemplifies EnviroBuild’s commitment to driving positive change within the industry.

Thanks to EnviroBuild’s collaboration with Rainforest Trust, over 270,000 acres of rainforest across 25 countries, equivalent to protecting 61.3 million trees, have been conserved.

EnviroBuild believes that the key to a more sustainable future is to educate the public on how to make sustainable changes to their own lives. It has taken an extra step in teaching clients about the sustainability of its products through Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs). EnviroBuild hopes that these documents will enable clients to make informed decisions when choosing sustainable options, while also helping the company itself to improve its product range by pinpointing areas of the greatest environmental impact.
