Growing public awareness of climate change has driven extensive political decision making in favour of increasing the use of renewable energies and avoiding energy waste. This megatrend is positively impacting our business and with changing energy and regulatory policies, opportunities are opening up for Armacell to grow shares across the entire application range.
