‘The Red Herring Report’
The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products
The ASBP are all about the products. The physical stuff used to build with. The ASBP champion products that are better for us and the environment as well as those companies and organisations prepared to push the boundaries. Seeking to support industry to make better decisions and legislators to make better policy, the ASBP work from a position of independence from government and from short term commercial interests. Driven by their mission, legitimacy flows from the committed and diverse ASBP membership.
The Natural Fibre Insulation Group
A group of ASBP members who have come together to establish the Natural Fibre Insulation Group (NFIG) and through collaborative actions aim to better communicate the benefits of natural insulation products and systems. The NFIG believe insulation profoundly influences the thermal, acoustic, fire, health, comfort, buildability, durability, and sustainability performance of buildings. Balanced consideration of this multi-functionality often makes Natural Fibre Insulation the superior choice.
