Plasterboard Sustainability Action Plan
The Plasterboard Sustainability Partnership (PSP), which is made up of the broad range of stakeholders involved in the production, installation and disposal of plasterboard as well as the relevant government departments and regulatory agencies, was established in 2009 as an output of a DEFRA programme to develop a Plasterboard Roadmap identifying the environmental impacts of plasterboard throughout its lifecycle.
The Partnership is supported by the FIS Drylining Working Group.
The Plasterboard Resource Efficiency Action Plan (REAP) sets targets for reducing waste across the sector. There are currently no records across our sector for plasterboard waste. In order to understand the levels of plasterboard waste in the sector, the FIS Drywall Group has proposed members using a single method to record waste.
