TICA (the Thermal Insulation Contractors Association) is the sole UK Trade Association representing contractors involved in the application of hot and cold Thermal Insulation. TICA believe that sustainability and staff wellbeing go hand in hand and we are working hard to ensure that we can become an exemplar of sustainability and wellbeing within the thermal insulation market. TICA have pledged to reduce our own carbon emissions and join the UN Race to Zero via the SME Climate Hub:
TICA have also joined the Construction Leadership Council CO2nstructZero initiative as a Partner:
Net Zero Carbon will be woven into our business strategy and we have made Net Zero Carbon commitments in three key areas:
When it comes to proactive carbon reduction steps TICA will lead by example. In 2021 alone, TICA have invested in the following low carbon initiatives at TICA House:
TICA have also launched a staff Environmental Group which will be looking at further ways in which we can to improve our environmental behaviours and reduce our carbon footprint. Staff wellbeing is a key focus for TICA and that is why we ensure that all of our members of staff have a voice on the vital subject of sustainability.
We wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy of the “Living with a green heart” initiative and hope that this will allow us to collaborate with forward thinking companies like Knauf to promote good practice in the wider industry and reduce carbon emissions throughout the supply chain.
