Customer engagement

The construction industry as a whole is responsible for 26% of global greenhouse gas emissions and 98% of the materials used in this industry end up in landfills or low-value applications at the end of their life cycle. With our lightweight construction solutions, Etex can play an important role by engaging with our customers and delivering them solutions which are sustainable, efficient, safe and beautiful. By 2025 we have transformed the way we engage with our customers and we have enhanced the sustainable features of our lightweight construction solutions.
