  • SCOPE

    2 Scope

    2.1 This standard establishes multiple attribute sustainability requirements for gypsum board and panel products as defined in 5.18 – 5.20.

    2.2 The criteria in this standard were developed based on the life cycle stages of gypsum boards and panels. Sustainability factors considered in this standard are: materials, energy, manufacturing and operations, health and environment, product performance, and product stewardship. Credit for innovations in these, or other factors not listed, is also addressed in this standard.
