Speaking about his appointment, Tweedie said, “I am honoured to have been asked to join the GGF board, giving me an opportunity to further focus the industry on developing solutions to reduce energy consumption. It is an important time for the glass and glazing industry, particularly with the forthcoming introduction of the Green Deal scheme. Increasing energy costs mean home owners are looking for ways to reduce their energy requirements and the GGF has a central role to play in challenging the industry to develop and provide affordable ways to do this.”
