Architectural Window Systems (AWS) is pleased to announce our partnership with Greenfleet to 100% offset the carbon emissions of our fleet’s freight movements.

In recent years and with good reason, much emphasis globally has been placed on reducing the reliance on coal generated electricity to refine alumina and smelt it into aluminium.

AWS has long been known for amplifying environmental splendour through our innovative, window, door and framing solutions, and in more recent years we have led the development of class-leading aluminium systems to reduce energy consumption and improve thermal efficiency.

AWS sources its aluminium extrusions exclusively from INEX, which operates three extrusion plants in Oceania, with two in Australia and one in New Zealand. In 2022, 55% of the primary aluminium billet used by INEX in Australia to produce aluminium extrusions was classified ‘low carbon’.

AWS is pleased to be part of an industry that is championing positive climate action, but acknowledges that the responsibility for carbon reduction cannot be placed wholly on the materials we use.

At AWS, we are taking a ‘whole of process approach’ to our commitment to carbon reduction. We are continually evaluating and improving our processes and material application to reduce our carbon footprint.

We are not just another aluminium supplier, but a reliable, full-service business partner that creates exceptional long-term value for our customers, employees, and business partners. Our distribution network covers the whole of Australia, and we track our fleet with satellite accuracy.


AWS is pleased to announce our partnership with Greenfleet – an environmental not-for-profit organisation focused on protecting our climate by restoring our forests – to 100% offset the carbon emissions of our distributions fleet’s freight movements. Every AWS truck, every time.

In addition to this, AWS has established a one-hectare Company Forest in Ledcourt, Victoria. We are committed to making an impact towards protecting our environment, restoring biodiverse ecosystems, and re-connecting habitat for wildlife, including many endangered species. The AWS Forest is legally protected for 100 years, allowing it to grow into a self-sustaining ecosystem that will thrive beyond this century. 

The beauty of aluminium is that it ‘lives on’, through its ability to be infinitely recycled, and at AWS we are committed to making sure our climate stability and native forests have the same opportunity.
