Sustainability

Green Initiative

In the age of transparency, the power shifts to the architects, builders and consumers who work with progressive leaders in the new green-building era. At Gyproc, we have developed a sustainable approach to our business which helps our partners in the construction industry deliver innovative solutions and services to their customers and clients. Gyproc has initiated to monitor the environmental impact of the products during production and their whole life cycle. This requires transparency and the vigorous use of widely accepted Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) techniques to produce meaningful data. Data which our customer can compare to ensure an optimised approach is taken in line with future requirements, as per Green Building Organisations like IGBC and GRIHA. At Gyproc, we ensure that the environmental impact of a new product is considered right at the beginning of the innovation process. By using this mind-set and methodology, we will increasingly deliver products, systems and service innovations to improve the environment and comfort of our installers and end-users..

Life Cycle Assessment

LCA is a rigorous tool to help assess the environmental impact of our products. Understanding the environmental performance of construction a product is growing expectations for professionals in the building chain. Saint-Gobain strongly believes that Life Cycle Assessment is the most reliable tool available to assess the green credentials of construction products and enables companies to communicate credible, factual information about their products to consumers. It is also a powerful tool that enhances the environmental features of our products.

Stages of life cycle assessment

  • Manufacturing: The raw materials such as gypsum, paper liners and other additives are collected and transported to the manufacturing site, for manufacturing of finished product
  • Logistics: Then the finished product (Plasterboard) is transported to the installation site
  • Installation & Building Lifetime: The product is being installed at the Project site. The use of building starts with the maintenance, repair and replacement of the installed product
  • End of Life: The building is demolished and the components (Plasterboards) are either processed & recycled or landfilled

Environmental Product Declaration

EPDs offer informative third-party verification confirming the true sustainability of a product.

What is an EPD?
An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a rigorous third party examination of a product or product family's environmental impact. Evaluations are based on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that is performed using established Product Category Rules (PCRs).

Gyproc India is the first manufacturer in the product industry to issue Environmental Product Declarations – comprehensive third-party life cycle assessments. Published in International EPD System

We care for people

Visual Comfort

Aesthetics

Gyproc drywall & ceiling systems provide aesthetically stunning finishes as the surface of gypsum board is pre-leveled. They are suitable for any kind of finish like monolithic finish, paint, wall paper, marble/stone or tile cladding.

Acoustic Comfort

Insulation

A 100mm thick drywall system can achieve up to Rw 50dB sound insulation, while a Half-inch brick wall (plastered both sides) provides an average sound insulation of Rw 40dB.

Safety

Fire Resistance

Lightweight partition and ceiling systems using a range of different gypsum boards can be specified to provide excellent fire performance for up to 4 hours within all building types.

Indoor Air Quality

Our innovative Activ’Air technology in Plasterboards minimizes the threat of those volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are habitually found in the workplace atmosphere. This results in cleaner air and healthier working conditions.

Thermal Comfort

A balanced thermal environment is essential to feeling comfortable. Concentration, manual dexterity and the occurrence of accidents are all influenced by excessively high or low temperatures. Gyproc Drywall and Ceiling systems help provide better thermal comfort for occupants in interior spaces.
