Lister Trade Frames, of Stoke on Trent, have just been awarded Green Deal Installer Accreditation through FENSA (The Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme). The presentation of the certificate was made at the FIT Show Glass and Glazing Industry exhibition in Telford. Green Deal is the Government's leading environment initiative. Put simply, the Government is establishing a framework to enable consumers to make energy efficiency improvements to their homes, including energy efficient windows and doors at no upfront cost by making payments through their energy bills.
