REGUPOL Australia have been supplying recycled sustainable flooring solutions in the region for over 30 years. Many REGUPOL rubber flooring and soundproofing products are certified under GECA’s Floor Coverings standard.
REGUPOL are passionate about the inherent integrity of their products, having been upcycled from post-consumer and pre-consumer waste products. In the last 40 years alone, the volume of processed, post-consumer end of life tyre (ELT) used in REGUPOL products has exceeded two million cubic tonnes.
GECA certification has led to a number of lucrative Green Star contracts for REGUPOL:
“Being able to guarantee our customers a 100% item score in the Green Building Council of Australia’s Materials Calculator has been one of the best investments our company has made. GECA have not only been able to independently certify our products under the strict guidelines, they have provided valuable guidance and support to our architectural clientele which has led to our products being selected into award-winning commercial projects, such as Energex in Queensland.”
The GECA Floor Coverings standard is recognised by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) under their Assessment Framework for Product Certification Schemes. Products that are certified under this standard achieve a Level A, which is equivalent to a 100% item score in the GBCA Materials Calculators for Flooring.
Launched by the GBCA in 2003, Green Star is Australia’s only national, voluntary rating system for buildings and communities. A Green Star rating provides independent verification that a building or community project is sustainable across all stages of the built environment lifecycle.
On 15 March 2021, in collaboration with Edge Environment and the Global Product Stewardship Council, GECA was awarded a grant by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to tackle the issue of commercial office furniture going to landfill. The group will use the funding to design a product stewardship scheme that will help reduce the estimated 30,000 tonnes of furniture – much of it in perfectly good condition – that ends up in Australia’s waste stream each year.Read More See all news
