Armstrong Ceilings sets it's sights high with a Green Army
26th January 2012
Leading British manufacturer of interior building solutions, Armstrong Ceilings, has launched a scheme to build an eco-friendly army of approved ceiling and wall system installers with expertise in recycling projects.
The eco warriors, or Green Omegas, are an enhancement to Armstrong’s Omega network of approved installers which was launched almost 20 years ago and now numbers more than 150 companies with turnovers of up to £24 million.
Every Omega installer has the potential to become a Green Omega if they meet a range of criteria including having an environmental policy, completing Armstrong’s environmental survey and training, and enrolling in an environmental management system (EMS) such as ISO 14001.
Green Omegas also need to have worked on a project with Armstrong that involved the manufacturer’s Off-Cut (OCR) or End-Of-Life (EOL) recycling schemes.
Armstrong’s Green Omega initiative has now won an ECO Innovation award in the Best Practice Awards run by the AIS (Association of Interior Specialists). The judges said: “A clear winner as it demonstrated an excellent process in support of a good environmental innovation – it was the best all-round entry. Very good life cycle approach across the whole cycle. Education will get more people improving standards intelligently and faster.”
