Architects and specifiers seeking credits for schemes such as BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) can now do so using a comprehensive range of products from Knauf.

Under the responsible sourcing standard BES 6001, Knauf achieved a performance rating of ‘Very Good’ covering the company’s laminated and non-laminated plasterboards and gypsum plasters. This applies to products manufactured at both of the company’s UK factories at Immingham and Sittingbourne, including premium plasterboards and jointing, bonding and textured compounds.

This certification is important to those customers seeking credits against BREEAM and the CSH because it contributes to credits under both schemes. A BES 6001 ‘Very Good’ rating results in products being classified as Tier 1 in Mat 2 of the CSH, and Tier 3 according to Mat 03 in BREEAM 2011.

The certificate may be viewed and downloaded on GreenBookLive and the Knauf website –
