GRC and the environment

GRC’s lightweight nature is not only easy to install, it’s also better for the environment than other materials.

A study carried out as part of a UK Government/Concrete Industry Alliance project compared two precast concrete and GRC products that fulfill the same function.

The results show that GRC has a lower environmental impact (around 40% less). The reduced environmental impact is due to the reduced cement usage per product and reduced transport costs.

As a local family company in our third generation, we are committed to introducing manufacturing, storage and packing processes that reduce the impact on the environment.

We are immensely proud of being an Australian owned manufacturer and the proactive reuse of materials and water is just the beginning in our obligation to you and our future generations.

In 2022 we further reduced our energy consumption by 48% with the installation of a new solar energy system at our GRC production facility in Sydney. This new system reduces our CO2 emissions by 56 tonne annually… this equates to more than 12 cars off our roads.
