Sustainability is what we do every day. We take everyday packaging waste, manufacture into low carbon building materials. Any offcuts and end of life saveBOARD products can be returned to us at ZERO gate fee to be remanufactured into new saveBOARD products - Pretty cool!
We are proud to be recognised as a sustainable company and hold many of the common industry environmental certifications. Ultimately, we can provide transparency to our clients and customers on how we make our saveBOARD products.
Embodied Energy Calculations
Embodied energy (EE) is the non-renewable energy used to extract, refine, process, manufacture, transport and dispose of a material. EE calculations generally follow cradle to gate system boundaries, which includes energy outputs starting from extraction (cradle) and finishing with transport (gate) to the building site.
Declare certification is available for all saveBOARD products. Declare is like a nutritional label for building products, offering specifiers, contractors and building users insight into the ingredients used in the manufacture of building products.
