ABI is proud to announce our newest sustainable and goodwill effort to create a cleaner, greener and healthier world by planting a tree for each and every project to compensate for the minimal wastes we generate. On average, we generate between 3-5% wastes compared to the upwards of 20% wastes for traditional construction. This, in addition to funding global tree planting projects and general fundraising, will help us achieve our long term goal of 100,000 trees planted. At ABI we believe in a sustainable, ecological and environmentally-friendly business practices.
Trees provide much needed oxygen that keeps us alive and enhances the quality of life on this planet. It is estimated that we consume more than 123 million cubic feet of wood annually, and less than 1% is replenished. This alarming reality is we are literally destroying a natural source of abundant, fresh oxygen. Not to to mention the beauty and majesty a tree provides. Further, traditional “stick-build” construction practices leave so much excess and lumber wastes that builders are literally throwing away good wood. At ABI our advanced technology enables us to make the best use of our lumber consumption resulting in dramatically lowered wastes. Less waste, more trees. It’s that simple!
