Environmental Product Declaration

New and better EPDs for Gyptone products

Saint-Gobain has high environmental ambitions. So we are proud to announce that we have received new and even better EPDs covering all Gyptone products.

The EPDs have been issued for Gyptone 10mm with Activ’ Air and Gyptone 12.5mm with Activ’ Air. Among other things, the EPDs confirm that all Gyptone products are completely recyclable.

The Environmental Product Declaration is an internationally recognised and independently verified document that communicates information about the life-cycle environmental impact of a product. Although an EPD does not prove that a declared product is environmentally superior, it makes it possible to compare products transparently and authoritatively.

You can choose to have an internal or an external verification of the data delivered by the manufacturer. The Gyptone products were externally verified, ensuring high credibility.

The EPD findings include

  • Tests show that Activ’ Air decomposes up to 70% of the formaldehyde in a controlled test environment.
     
  • Only 2% of waste generated on the manufacturing site is sent to landfill.
     
  • Easily understandable illustrations of the manufacturing process and the life-cycle stages.
     
  • Documentation of life-cycle impacts concerning global warming, resource consumption, energy consumption, water consumption, and waste production.
