About GreenRate™

Used for all products and projects requiring recognised provider ‘Sustainable Product’ Certification in a variety of specific international rating tools and programs. GreenRate™ is recognised for key WELL™ requirements.

About LCARate™

Is a unique comparative Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) based, product rating and certification system that compares the product under study to a ‘worst case business as usual product in common use’. This assessment goes well beyond traditional LCA rating methodology using robust scientific metrics to rate the whole of life performance of products using Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum rating.

About Environmental Product Declarations (EPD)

This is part of Global GreenTag’s ISO 14025 and EN 15804 LEED® and BREEAM® compliant EPD Program Operation also using unique Life Cycle Benefit Indicators, to measure Net Positive and Circular Economy benefits.

Timber Certifications

As one of Australia’s largest manufacturers of wood products, Laminex supports responsible forest management and is committed to producing quality products from quality materials that are backed by globally recognised certifications. We source our raw materials from suppliers who have been independently verified as compliant to chain of custody standards, meaning that materials are produced using legally-sourced wood fibres from certified sustainably managed forests to either; Forest Steward Council® (FSC®) or Responsible Wood / PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification).

Our manufacturing facilities hold their own PEFC certifications. This means all certified wood products from these facilities can be traced from plantation to final manufactured product.

Careful management of our resources and emissions

Addressing climate change is a huge challenge we face globally. For this reason, we have committed to achieving a 30% reduction in our scope 1 (direct) and scope 2 (indirect) carbon emissions by 2030. This target is based on keeping global temperature rise well below two degrees Celsius.
