Declare is Gerard’s latest showing of tangible environmental leadership and offers increased transparency and value for customers and specifiers keen on sustainable development.
Gerard's two Declare labels cover its range of both textured and satin roof profiles, and details the makeup of both the substrate and protective coatings.
Declare is the brainchild of the International Living Future Institute, and is administered locally by Living Future New Zealand. It's described as a 'nutrition label' for products and was designed to help specifiers quickly align with proactive, transparent manufacturers.
Benefits include Homestar, Greenstar points
For environmentally motivated customers and specifiers, Gerard’s Declare label offers more than just a ‘quick check’ and peace of mind. It also boosts Homestar and Greenstar applications:
- Homestar applicants can claim 0.5 points with a Gerard specification.
- Greenstar applicants can now claim up to two points with a Gerard specification, with the new Declare label offering an additional 0.5 points on top of the 1.5 provided by Gerard’s ISO 14001 status.
Gerard continues to lead the roofing market in efforts to be more environmentally sustainable, having been NZ's first ISO 14001 certified roofing manufacturer and involved in one of New Zealand's first 'Homestar 10' rated projects.
