    Green Star is Australia's trusted mark of quality for the design, construction and operation of sustainable buildings, fitouts and communities. Choosing Green Star can help you save money, create a healthy place for people, minimise your environmental footprint and build a better future for us all.

Panel boards are used largely as a means of lining in construction, as well as several other applications such as interior screens and parts of furniture. In Australia, approximately 30% (by weight) of resources disposed of in landfills is construction and demolition waste. A significant proportion of this waste is comprised of panel boards.

Hence, this standard seeks to minimise the end-use phase’s impact through rewarding products that use less material, maximise recyclability, minimise hazardous ingredients/contaminants, and use environmentally preferable materials sourcing.

This standard applies to a range of panel board products used for interior fit-out applications such as interior panelling and as a component of furniture. This includes:

๐Ÿ”˜ Particle boards

๐Ÿ”˜ Edge glued panels

๐Ÿ”˜ Fibre boards

๐Ÿ”˜ Plasterboard or gypsum board

๐Ÿ”˜ Ceiling tiles

๐Ÿ”˜ Boards made from plastics and other polymers, textile fibres, metals, glass, mineral fibre, fibreglass, engineered timber and natural fibre products
