sustainability certification

saveBOARD can be used as a Green & Low Carbon alternative to commonly used materials on both residential and commercial construction projects. Our environmental certifications can found in our Technical Literature or Certifications page.


How do saveBOARD products contribute to home star Credits?

Homestar is New Zealand's leading holistic sustainability certification for new home design and construction. The use of saveBOARD products will earn, or contribute towards earning, Green Star credits in the following Green Star categories: 

The total points available for the categories listed below is based on achieving the criteria project wide.  The use of saveBOARD products will contribute towards earning Homestar Points in the following categories: 


EN2      Embodied Carbon

For use in your calculations the embodied carbon of saveBOARD products is 0.11 kgCO2e/kg material.


Stayed tuned!.  We are currently working through the EPD process.  Our draft numbers show a -7.0kgCO2e/m2 for A1-3 including biogenic carbon attached to the original fibre packaging.


EN3      Sustainable Materials

Up to 10 points are available where at least 50% of the material content is reused, eco-preferred or responsibly sourced materials.  When calculating enter saveBOARD products in category (6), measured in m2.


EN4      Construction Waste Minimisation


Minimising Waste

saveBOARD products are available cut to length (minimum quantities apply).  This will reduce off cuts during installation.


Onsite Sorting

Soft Plastics can be sorted and returned to saveBOARD to be remanufactured into new board.  Ask us for a copy of “Accepted Plastics”.


Waste Diversion

As above, soft plastic waste can be recycled with saveBOARD.  Any off cuts can also be returned to be manufactured into new boards.




HC7     Healthy Materials

Although saveBOARD is VOC free, with a DECLARE label, it cannot be claimed as it does not fall in to the specified materials being applied coatings, floor coverings, engineered wood, adhesives and sealants


Interior Wall & Ceiling Board
75% < CO2 than plasterboard.

Exposed Pre-Finished Interior
Wall & Ceiling Board
50% < CO2 than Plywood


Rigid Air Barrier

saveBOARD Flooring Alternative to Fibre Cement


The USA version of saveBOARD provided the membrane roof substrate (the board underneath the waterproof surface) for the Tesla Gigafactory One, in Sparks Nevada. The Gigafactory has a roof area of approximately 200,000 m2; which equates to up-cycling 2,000 tons of composite plastics in this single roof. This one roof saves 336,000 kgs of embodied CO2 compared to using a plywood substrate.
