Our commitment is monitored and supported by the Safety, Ethics and Environment Committee and guided by the Saint-Gobain Group Health & Safety requirement.

 

Greening Every Building with Gyproc

At Gyproc of our commitment to a more sustainable environment, we've included various green initiatives as part of not just our products but our internal production processes as well.

By doing so, we hope to set an exemplary benchmark against which others in the building and construction industry should aspire to follow. To date, Gyproc Singapore has fulfilled the requirements of the Singapore Green Building Council and exceeded other regulatory demands in areas such as:

  • Clean air emissions
  • Natural resources management
  • Waste reduction
  • Promotion of recycling services.

 

Going Green with Gypsum

The word gypsum means chalk or plaster in Greek and has been used for more than 10,000 years to construct and decorate habitats.

In essence, gypsum is a soft, rock-like mineral which is made of calcium sulfate dehydrate that can be found in the earth's crust. Because it is non-toxic, inert and harmless to both the surrounding environment and the people occupying it, gypsum has become a vital element to many areas of our day-to-day lives. Furthermore, gypsum is indoor air-quality friendly in accordance with the ASTM D5-116 Standard and is naturally fire resistant which makes it ideal for indoor construction.

Gypsum in general can be used as:

  • a dietary source or an ingredient in flour, bread, ice cream, tofu, blue cheese, canned vegetables, beer and other types of food for human consumption
  • a modeling material for tooth restorations
  • a surgical and orthopedic cast
  • a color additive for drugs and cosmetics

 

Green and Sustainable Building Materials

What makes Gyproc drywalls eco-friendly is that when they are placed within the cavity of a partition or wall, due to their low thermal conductivity they make excellent indoor regulators. To enhance thermal performance, this cavity can be filled with stone wool as well. This is without a doubt a much needed feature when dealing with the humidity and heat surrounding a country like Singapore as it helps keep the room temperature stable and reduces the need for constant air-conditioning.

All Gyproc products are IBS (Industrialised Building Systems) certified for the following:

  • Reduction of site labour
  • Lower total construction cost
  • Faster project completion
  • Cleaner environment
  • Better quality
  • Neater and safer construction sites
  • Less site materials
  • Lower wastage

Our gypsum boards are also endorsed under the Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC) in the Leader category (4 ticks) due to the fact that it is made from reused or waste materials.
