Range of ceiling tiles achieves Premium Ecospecifier SA Product Listing.
Ecospecifier SA has accredited Saint-Gobain Gyproc’s range of ceiling tiles, verifying them to be innovative products that represent high value over their lifetime, not only in the traditional sense, but also in the expanded sense of health, wellbeing and productivity of their total life, within the context of the people, buildings and systems they serve.
According to Ecospecifier SA, all products submitted for evaluation by Saint-Gobain Gyproc were found to be commercially available, environmentally preferable products or materials with environmental qualities that reduce potential environmental impacts across their lifecycle.
The range of ceiling tiles was subject to rigorous scrutiny and underwent a full lifecycle assessment in addition to human health risk, ecological quality, resource depletion, corporate and social sustainability, and green building scheme assessments by Ecospecifier SA.
In addition, the products do not contain significant quantities of substances that have harmful ecological or health impacts. The accreditation also affirms that the products were not sourced using processes harmful to high conservation value, remnant natural ecological communities or bio-reserves.
“Achieving a Premium Product Listing with Ecospecifier SA, the benchmark source of verified, lifecycle-based information of eco-preferred products, is key for us,” says Evan Lockhart-Barker, general manager for marketing at Saint-Gobain Gyproc.
“The accreditation of our ceiling tile range follows in quick succession after the recent listing achieved for our range of plasterboards for walls and ceilings, and is testimony to our commitment to being very aware of the impact our products have on the planet. Our high-performance products are designed to create safe, healthy urban habitats that enable comfortable living.
“We strive towards international standards of sustainability, exploring more and more ways to manufacture differently, build differently and make a difference to the world we live in.”
