Global Green Tag Certified and Sustainable Tiles
At Earp Bros, we focus on partnering with suppliers that implement environmentally sustainable practices with an aim to radically reducing our carbon footprint. The interior design and architectural community is growing increasingly aware of the importance of environmental best practice and we continue to implement environmentally sustainable initiatives to facilitate this.
Through The Living Future Institute under their Declare Label system, we are proud to have received Red List Free certification for Porcelanosa Group Wall & Floor Tiles. With no VOC’s or harmful chemical constituents, our Porcelanosa Group green certified tiles are the most eco-friendly option for floor and wall surfaces.
4 years ago we decided to become the first tile supplier in Australia to be independently certified by one of the world’s most robust, trusted and widely recognised ecolabels –Ecospecifier Global GreenTag. Our certified range includes Porcelanosa Group Wall + Floor Tiles and STONKER Facade tiles.
Global GreenTag is the only Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) recognised Australian consumer and competition commission (ACCC) approved product rating Certification Mark. Undergoing an in-depth assessment of our range of Floor and Wall Tiles from the Porcelanosa Group in Spain, we have gained certification under both of these programs, offering benefits to both design professionals and building owners here in Australia.
