Sustainability | Knauf Australia


Our business actions are guided by a commitment to sustainable development. The attention paid to employees’ health and safety, reducing our impact on the environment, respect for local communities and social responsibility are the foundations of our long term-growth. This commitment is demonstrated by the certification of Altona, Beenleigh and Matraville Plants to ISO 14001:2015 Environment, OHSAS 18001:2007 Health & Safety, and ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management systems. As Knauf strives to grow sustainably through continuous environmental improvements we work in three areas: environment, smart living solutions for people and in the area of community.

Carbon Neutral Opt-in Program

Knauf has introduced Australia’s first carbon neutral plasterboard as part of its long-term commitment to reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing plasterboard.

Smart living solutions

Knauf works together with customers to provide solutions for projects across all construction sectors, from healthcare, to education and residential buildings. A wide range of products, systems and services are available from Knauf which are produced in compliance with environmental standards.


The success of our business is closely aligned to the health and well-being of our employees and the communities in which we work. Recognising our responsibility to the broader community, we engage employees and support local communities and industry.


At Knauf, we routinely monitor and analyse our environmental performance to minimise the environmental impact of our activities, products and services. To this end, environmental management actions at Knauf focus on three areas: energy efficiency and carbon emissions, water conservation and waste management.
