Knauf picks up award at Green Deal and ECO Awards

Published:  22 June, 2015

Knauf Insulation has won the ‘Supplier of the Year’ award at this year’s Green Deal and ECO Awards, after demonstrating outstanding service to customers, the local community and the environment.

The awards took place at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on 19 June to recognise work the energy efficiency sector is doing while encouraging best practice throughout the industry.

The company recently recognised the dramatic effect Local Authorities can have on the energy people and businesses use, developing a pilot study to measure the local energy and energy efficiency agendas of councils in England: the Local Authority Energy Index (LAEI).

The LAEI considered how the 25 chosen local authorities have worked to influence the energy and energy efficiency agendas, along with measuring and ranking their work in this area.

It used a combination of quantitative and qualitative measures to produce an overall index of performance in energy efficiency. In particular, it highlighted best practice and explored barriers that exist for councils trying to improve wellbeing and reduce energy bills.

Steve Duke, sales director for refurbishment & contracting at Knauf Insulation, said: “It is great news that we have won Supplier of the Year at this year’s Green Deal and ECO Awards – especially since we won the ‘Marketing Campaign of the Year’ category at last year’s awards.

“We have introduced a number of measures to ensure we’re ‘supplier of choice’ by maintaining excellent customer service, providing extensive marketing and training support, adapting to the changing customer needs and offering a comprehensive portfolio of whole house solutions.

“In addition to this, we are always striving to create energy efficient buildings by manufacturing a range of insulation solutions for a variety of applications and we are fully committed to the local community and our employees.”
