Gaining recognised certification of products is very important and Kenbrock are proud to confirm that they have achieved Global Green Tag for its major ranges of Modular Planks, including the market leading Smartdrop & Zenith ranges. This accreditation means that building owners and architects can utilise the GreenStar sustainability tool which is offered through the Green Building Council of Australia for their projects. They will have access to product credits through this scheme by utilising these Kenbrock ranges. The Green Tag accreditation provides assessment of several key areas such as: health, eco-toxicity, post-consumer recycled content, waste reduction, compliance with environmental and labour legislation, no heavy metals & low VOC content.
Trevor Morris, CEO of Kenbrock Pty Ltd commented that “this is a first step in our long term strategy to become a leader in environmentally friendly, and fully sustainable, resilient flooring products in the Australian Flooring Industry. It is our responsibility to ensure that our clients are receiving products of the upmost environmental integrity and providing a safe and sustainable environment for the entire Australian community, whilst still keeping the on-trend aesthetics we are known and loved for”. Other Kenbrock products are set to follow suit in gaining the GreenTag accreditation, which is known as a world-wide leader in sustainability accreditation.
Bill Moore from Kenbrock described some of the additional benefits of Green Tag that can be discussed with owners of both private and commercial buildings; “in commercial buildings, by installing a sustainable and environmentally friendly flooring for living and public space, it is possible to gain higher returns by attracting and keeping tenants. In global case studies, it has been proved the benefit to health & productivity of staff in areas with accredited products. In private homes consideration of the credentials of all interior finishes is becoming more important in the final decision process”.
