Insulation plays the most fundamental role in improving the energy efficiency of the built environment. However, it is also a part of the total mix of building products and design.

IA works closely with other energy efficiency-centric organisations both locally and internationally to provide international best-practice data and practical cost-effective solutions to meet requirements for energy efficiency and environmental design in Trans Tasman residential & commercial buildings, and industrial installations.
