Saint-Gobain Gyproc’s range of plaster products has achieved the prestigious Premium Ecospecifier SA Product Listing. This accreditation verifies that the range of plasters has undergone an independent and unbiased assessment and is eco- and health-preferable products.
It also follows closely on the recent accreditation of Gyproc ceiling tiles and plasterboard range.
According to Ecospecifier SA, all products submitted for evaluation by Saint-Gobain Gyproc achieved accreditation verifying them as commercially available, environmentally preferable products or materials that have qualities that reduce potential environmental impacts across their lifecycle.
The range of plasters was subject to rigorous scrutiny and underwent the following evaluations by Ecospecifier SA: lifecycle assessment, human health risk assessment, ecological quality, resource depletion, corporate and social sustainability and Green Building Scheme assessment. In addition, it has been confirmed that these products are likely to contribute to the achievement of Green Building rating tool credits.
The accreditation affirms that the products do not contain significant quantities of substances that have harmful ecological or health impacts, and were not sourced using processes harmful to high conservation value or remnant natural ecological communities or bio-reserves. The products do not create major environmental or health degradation.
“We are very proud to add our plaster range to the stable of products, including plasterboards for walls and ceilings, and our range of ceiling tiles, which have earned the highly valued Ecospecifier accreditation in the past six months. This confirms our commitment to limit the impact our products have on the environment and urban habitats, whilst demonstrating sustainability,” says Evan Lockhart-Barker, general manager marketing at Saint-Gobain Gyproc.
