Knauf Insulation’s Earthwool® range of glasswool insulation has again received GreenTag GreenRate Level A certification. This remains the unrivalled position of Earthwool® as the first and only glasswool insulation in New Zealand and Australia to have GreenRate Level A.

GreenTag GreenRate Level A certification was issued to the range of products with ECOSE® Technology and DriTherm® Technology manufactured in Malaysian plant in Johor Bahru.

GreenTag is a unique, independent third party, green building and other sustainable product rating and certification program and is considered a market leader for green product certification. GreenTag’s GreenRate is recognised by both the New Zealand (NZGBC) and Green Building Councils of Australia (GBCA). This certification allows specifiers to continue to easily achieve points under the Homestar® and Green Star® programs.

For materials to receive a green rating, they must undergo rigorous assessment and meet evidence-based criteria, ensuring that they and their suppliers meet the criteria to receive GreenTag certification.

Knauf Insulation has set the benchmark in New Zealand and Australia for environmentally friendly insulation with its super-soft range of Earthwool® insulation.
