We are thrilled to announce that last night ACO were named winners of the over 100m2 UK Green Building Council Sustainable Stand Award at this year’s Ecobuild.

The central point of interest of our stand is the “tick leaf” which has attracted a great deal of attention. We chose the leaf design to help convey ACO’s connection to the natural world and the custodial role of managing surface water and the function of returning it to the ground in order to maintain a healthy and sustainable ecosystem. The tick is a simple means of verifying sustainability credentials have been met for the product and the processes employed in its manufacture, or to verify the product has a particular sustainability function within water management.

Speaking about our stand and the reason we were chosen as winners UK-GBC said: “The defining feature of this entry was how well considered it was. Unique to the Sustainable Stand Awards, they reported on and gave metrics of how they have improved the sustainability credentials on their stand from last year. They also used zero paper on their stand, instead simply directing people to their website for information.”

With this win, it looks like our aim to improve our sustainability credentials within the small to medium-sized business sector is working! We value sustainability and for over 50 years our innovative sustainable solutions have protected environments and maximized performance across industries.

What a great win and what a great sense of achievement.
