At InsulPro Manufacturing, we work hard at constantly delivering for our customers and when our customers asked about extending our environmental credentials to include material suitable for the Living Building Challenge, we answered with action.
All our polyester insulation products have now achieved the highest certification status under the Living Building Challenge’s Declare programme and are the world’s first polyester insulation products Red List Free.
What is Living Building Challenge™?
The Living Building Challenge™ is a building certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today and acts to rapidly diminish the gap between current limits and the end-game positive solutions we seek. The first New Zealand project built in accordance with the very stringent North American Living Building Challenge was the Tūhoe headquarters in Taneatua , near Whakatane with our products included in the build.
Red List Free
The Living Building Challenge™ developed a Red-List of prohibited materials under the Declare program, to provide transparency around building products. Declare is a ‘nutrition label’ for the international building industry and is a voluntary self-disclosure program aiming for healthier and more ecological products in construction.
Red List Free products are shown to be free from Declare’s red list ingredients.
Now all NOVAhush, NOVAfloor & NOVAtherm products are Red List Free.
If you are looking to take up the Living Building Challenge™ for your home or commercial building you can use confidently use any of our InsulPro Red-List Free products.
