What are some of the key sustainability aspects of your business and products?
The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it. So, our acoustic designs are purpose-built using sustainable practices to reduce human impact and drive better environmental outcomes. Not only do we have GECA certified products, but our timbers are also FSC certified, and our Perforated Plasterboard is LEED certified.
Why did you choose to get GECA certification?
GECA is a leading authority on global sustainable solutions, and our goal is to innovate acoustic architectural designs for a greener, simpler life. So, for us, GECA certification ensures we’re developing products with tomorrow in mind.
How important is certification to you? And how do you use it in your customer marketing?
Certification is incredibly important. Our customers are extremely passionate about the environment and building a better, more sustainable future. Not having green certification would mean being left behind in the architectural supplier space.
What’s changed for you since going through the certification process?
GECA certification has not only enabled us to be specified on more projects, but it allows us to take stock of our internal systems and processes and ensure that a sustainable approach is weaved into the business at every level.
What do you think are the biggest sustainability challenges for your industry right now?
Finding ways to recycle old materials or even develop circular materials is a challenge. We don’t want to produce materials that will end up in landfill.
Each year, the Minister for the Environment announces the product stewardship priority list that identifies products most in need of product stewardship action. This year for the first time, the upcoming list will be informed following a call for public nominations. We encourage all GECA stakeholders from industry and government to nonprofits and consumers to contribute their suggestions.Read More See all news
