Understand the positive impact of improving U-values.
This CPD seminar educates on the benefits of improving U-values, following an independent study undertaken by Mott MacDonald. The study looks at 6 different building types, in 5 different locations across the Middle East and how they each respond to improving U-values in the roof, wall and floor. It focusses on return on investment, carbon emissions and energy reductions.

Time: 1 Hour
Understanding the ODP vs GWP of PIR Insulation
Insulation materials themselves can contribute to greenhouses gas emissions, global warming potential and ozone depletion if they are not manufactured in a responsible way. This Lunch & Learn focusses on how different manufacturing processes, such as the use of CFC/HCFCs, can impact negatively on the environment.
