AIR-CELL from Kingspan Insulation has achieved the prestigious Global GreenTag certification, reinforcing the brand as the undisputed market leader in the thermo-reflective insulation sector. Kingspan’s AIR-CELL Insulbreak, Permicav, Permifloor, Permishield and Glareshield XL products received Global GreenTag approval, following a rigorous certification process.

Architects, designers, builders, engineers and responsible manufacturers around the globe are constantly focussed on ensuring the health and wellness of future building occupants. However, specifying and delivering on healthy products that are ethically sourced and produced remains a challenge.

One of the world’s most robust, trusted and widely recognised ecolabels among buyers, companies, green building councils, certification bodies and governments around the world, a Global GreenTag certification provides the assurance that the product has been independently fitness tested and certified for its green credentials.

The successful certification of AIR-CELL thermal insulation products demonstrates the Kingspan Group’s commitment to the environment and the wider wellbeing of the communities served by the company. The Global GreenTag certification highlights Kingspan’s environmental footprint as a manufacturer; where the company sources their raw materials; the ingredients that go into every product, ensuring they are healthy and won’t adversely affect those who interact with them; and the quality of their manufacturing processes that ensures they remain a hero example of best practice to protect and regenerate natural ecosystems and conserve resources.

GBCA CEO Romilly Madew says:

“The Green Building Council of Australia recognises the importance of independent, well-governed third party certification schemes ‎such as Global GreenTag to verify best practice, improve procurement processes and contribute to green fitout, building and community ratings and sustainable places for everyone.

“The GreenTag GreenRate is already recognised within the Green Star rating tools and industry collaboration with GBCs and third party certifiers can help to reduce environmental impacts across the Asia Pacific.”
