Focus on environmental impact, sustainability, and CO2 is increasingly important in the construction industry, in architecture, and in design. This growing focus naturally creates demand, and the popularity of environmental certifications such as LEED, BREEAM, and DGNB is greater than ever.
However, not all building materials are equally suitable for use in constructions where environmental awareness and impact take top priority.
In such projects, a carefully considered choice of materials, along with considerations regarding the material in relation to the entire building, is crucial. The choice of facade cladding, such as lightweight and thin elements in GRC, can, for example, affect the size of the foundation and the choice of supporting structure.
Our GRC is used in quite the number of environmentally certified buildings. Precisely because the material choice has been made carefully – with a focus on the overall building, weight, and, not least, durability.
On this page, you can read about the many reasons why our GRC is a popular choice for buildings undergoing environmental certification. You will also find our EPD, certificates for green electricity, and more.
If you have questions about the environmental impact of our GRC, you are always welcome to contact us.
