Celebrate Earth Day by Supporting Sustainability

Celebrate Earth Day by Supporting Sustainability

21/04/2021
Each year on April 22, people across the globe celebrate Earth Day. This is a perfect time to reflect on how our actions affect the world around us, from the materials we use, to where we shop, and what we buy.
Every day we can protect our planet by making smart, compassionate, and eco-friendly choices. One way is to support companies that make sustainability a priority, like James Hardie.
 
Choosing James Hardie cladding and trim and fermacell fibre gypsum means selecting an eco-friendly exterior and interior option, made from sustainable raw materials. Our fiber cement building products are made of sand, cellulose fiber, Portland cement, and water (which is recycled up to four times during the manufacturing process). fermacell® fibre gypsum boards come with a high amount of recycled materials and are made using natural materials (recycled paper, gypsum and water) without additional glues.
 
The ecobau institute in Switzerland has confirmed that HardiePlank® and HardiePanel® are fulfilling the highest requirements concerning ecological performance by awarding the highest possible certificate of eco-1.
The sustainability credentials of fermacell® fibre gypsum boards have been confirmed by the Institute for Building Biology in Rosenheim with the IBR seal of approval, and also by the renowned Cologne eco Institute who have awarded us the "Low Emission Product" certificate.
 
Fiber cement siding is built to last, and durability is a hallmark of sustainable products. Our products not only require fewer resources for replacement, but also help reduce maintenance and repair costs, and better protect homes from severe weather and disasters.
In a recent article with Forbes, James Hardie CEO Dr. Jack Truong spoke about how the company’s products help homeowners create their dream home and fortify it in ways that other building materials cannot.
We believe the durability of our products, longer life span compared to other building materials, and increased energy efficiency of structures when our products are applied, support cement siding as the building material of choice.
 
We make decisions every day that affect our environment, and today is the perfect day to reevaluate our eco-friendly choices that can keep our air, land, and water clean.
 
Over time, big things can happen with small changes and James Hardie is proud to help the industry build better homes, with less.
