A WORLD FIRST – Firth receives ‘Declare’ labels for their ready-mix and concrete masonry products
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainably built environments and in order to help our customers make smart and informed choices towards a more sustainable lifestyle, we have acquired Declare labels for our Certified Concrete® and our concrete masonry product ranges.
And we’re pretty pleased we’re the first concrete manufacturers in the world to do so!
Declare and Firth
Recognised globally, ‘Declare’ is an ingredients initiative for building products that is designed to shape a greener, healthier environment for construction workers, business employees and customers alike.
Declare helps architects, designers, specifiers, suppliers and others to better understand a product’s sustainable qualities and environmental effects. Declare also allows an expanded point-of-entry into projects pursuing the Living Building Challenge – the most advanced international measure of sustainability in the built environment possible today.
For Firth it means we can collaborate better with our suppliers, distributors and our customers to recognise how we can design and build for the future to include durability, longevity and provide a sustainable pathway to repurpose our products.
