Galvanizing and sustainable construction

Galvanizing’s long-term durability is achieved at relatively low environmental burden in terms of energy and other globally relevant impacts.

Galvanizers Association has been a major contributor to the European Initiative for Galvanizing in Sustainable Construction. Many independent experts have contributed to this initiative including advocates of green and natural building. The aims of the initiative were to help architects, specifiers, engineers, developers and their clients consider how to use galvanized steel in the context of sustainable construction.
