What is the Green Guide rating of your products and systems?

BRE Green Guide ratings are generally based on overall construction elements, although Isover insulation products do have individual A+ ratings. The Green Guide is continuously developed and updated by the BRE in terms of their assessment of construction elements. Our best advice therefore would be to visit the Green Guide website to establish current Green Guide ratings for your particular construction specification or seek further guidance from a registered Green Guide Assessor. Information relating to all Isover construction insulation products achieving A+ rating is available at www.isover.co.uk

Does British Gypsum source timber from Sustainably Managed forests?

As one of the UK’s largest purchasers of pallets, British Gypsum want to set the standard for sustainable and responsibly sourced timber. In 2008 the business made a public commitment that by the end of 2010 all timber would come from registered sustainable sources. British Gypsum has been working in partnership with some of the largest timber suppliers in the UK and 100% of timber now comes from sustainable sources. By working with suppliers this target was achieved a year in advance of the target.
