There is a growing priority for Green Building Rating Tools in the green construction industry. Knauf insulation products work to reduce energy efficiency and the aim is to achieve zero energy buildings in the future. Insulation can greatly reduce your energy usage; however, you must ensure that your home or building is also air-tight when adding insulation. Additionally, each new build needs to comply with BCA, which means there is no one size fits all because each building is unique and requires specific insulation. Knauf Australia’s insulation industry is also looking at ways they can improve their manufacturing processes to reduce carbon emission and energy use.
