Green Building Council of Australia
Launched in 2002, the GBCA is a national, not-for-profit organisation. It is uniquely supported by both industry and governments across the country.
Earp Bros support the philosophy behind GBCA and became the first hard-flooring company to join the Council, in 2007. As a member of the GBCA, Earp Bros is able to communicate the benefits of tiles to a growing number of eco-conscious building practitioners. We strongly support the use of tiles as an ecologically sustainable and responsible product.
Earp Bros is now Australia's first and only green certified tile supplier. After having the company and tiles audited by Ecospecifier, Earp Bros have achieved a Global Green Tag Level "A". This means our flooring materials rate in the top 1% of any industry with a Life Cycle Analysis rating of Gold Plus.
You can now choose environmentally responsible wall and floor tiles with ease, knowing they have been audited and managed by a reputable company. While the planning of a green building is important, it's critical to consider its ongoing sustainability and its environmental and human impact - now green buidings can be constructed using accredited tiles as a green building material.
