INCA Executive Chairman Mitch Gee said “’We must not lose sight of the energy inefficiencies in our housing stock and continue to strive to work towards warmer, more efficient homes. However we are not a one trick pony. We do not just provide insulation, we are not just about saving carbon. We are able to transform a home, a community, a life. We provide products that are not only beneficial for society, but are also aspirational for the individual home owner. This has been clearly demonstrated through this years’ brilliant INCA Award winners.”
