Siniat is proudly continuing the sponsorship of the Women in Sustainability category in this year’s Sustainability Awards.
Knauf Australia started the sponsorship when the category was introduced in 2019. Knauf is now Siniat in Australia following the purchase of the metal and plasterboard business by the Etex Group earlier this year.
“Our name might have changed, but our commitment to sustainability has not,” explained Siniat Marketing Manager Stephanie Olsen.
“We see the sponsorship as a way to promote sustainable building solutions and to empower women in the field. We wish to support female architects for the wonderful work they are doing. The previous winners – Natasha Mulcahy in 2019 and Nadine Samaha in 2020 – were worthy of this accolade, and I am looking forward to meeting this year’s category finalists.”
Stephanie explained that Siniat is still manufacturing the same products by the same people as before. “It was purely a shareholding change.”
“We absolutely remain committed to our sustainability goals, and see the rebrand as an opportunity to review our offering and see how we can improve it further.”
Siniat also continues to offer the carbon neutral opt-in program on all locally made plasterboard and metal products, certified under the Australian Government’s Climate Active Program formerly NCOS).
Siniat has once again partnered with Lendlease and are currently supplying carbon neutral plasterboard and metal products to the iconic One Sydney Harbour project.
Siniat also offers a range of products certified by Global GreenTag to GreenRate Level A, including technical and specialty products such as TruRock and TruRock HD, as well as the standard products in the Shield range.
The Sustainability Awards is Australia’s longest running and most prestigious awards program dedicated to acknowledging and celebrating excellence in sustainable design and architecture. The Sustainability Awards and Summit will be held on November 11, 2021.
