Sustainability statement

Residential | Commercial | Heritage

We are a leader and expert in the repair economy which creates jobs, develops skills and saves resources while reducing waste. Our approach to your home or business is truly sustainable.

Our commitment to sustainability

The meaning of  “sustainability” is not necessarily well understood and over the years it has been hijacked and misrepresented or used as “green wash”. This is unfortunate and totally unnecessary.

Sustainability should genuinely aim to balance outcomes for People, the Environment and the Economy.

It’s not easy to achieve sustainable practices if business is focussed on profit alone. In the past the environment has not been regarded as important. We are more aware now that we are inter-connected as communities and businesses to our environment.

Profit is not a dirty word and it’s essential for achieving sustainable outcomes. Adopt genuine sustainable outcomes through smart solutions is what we need to adopt if future generations are to enjoy a life that presents similar opportunities as we’ve had.

Our sustainability principles are backed up with actions

People

  • Create employment in a new business, one with a future that has never existed. 
  • Provide and train new skills to meld old with new and we apply innovations
  • Maintain the amenity of the community for older/heritage buildings and precincts
  • Respect the architectural design and the trades of the past 
  • Make people more comfortable living/working in old building stock (reduce noise & improve energy efficiency).

Planet

  • Reduce the landfilling of old wooden windows by repairing/retrofitting them 
  • Stop the loss of rare old growth wood from old windows (these woods will never be obtained again and they are the best quality – better than new wood)
  • Conserve and protect the built heritage and all the intrinsic energy and materials used
  • We reduce energy, waste and the unnecessary use of new resources to make new windows by adopting smarter solutions
  • Upgrade old building stock and therefore reduce demand on new resources
  • Improve the thermal efficiency and assist saving energy in buildings.

Profit

  • Assist local business owners to adopt the Sealasash opportunity so that they and their family can prosper through their own successful business
  • Offer success in business which then employs locals, pays taxes and stimulates the economy
  • Provide smarter solutions for home and building owners to protect their investment, particularly in heritage and older buildings
  • Save owners money towards heating/cooling costs
  • Assist to conserve heritage buildings which are important for tourism
  • Make business profitable so that it can reinvest into people, innovation and the economy.
