At the Build It Awards 2021, Accsys and Accoya® won the Best Sustainable Technology or Product category. On the same night of November 26th, Accoya cladding coated with Sansin produced by James Latham plc also took a top prize at the British Woodworking Federation awards.
Accsys’ purpose is “changing wood to change the world”, and the team is very pleased and proud to see its work celebrated and acclaimed by the most knowledgeable people and organisations in the industry. Its Accoya solid modified wood product combines outstanding performance and durability with certified sustainability, enhancing the best benefits of wood as a building material with the company’s proprietary acetylation process to resist rot, decay and dimenional swelling or warping.
A week earlier, the company was also listed as a runner up on the shortlist for the IR Society Best Practice Award for Best ESG Communication. This marks a year of substantial progress in Accsys’ development of its Environmental, Social and Governance strategy and reporting: making sure the growing positive environmental impact of increasing its supply of products is matched with increasingly improved performance and transparency as a responsible and ethical business.
