from manufacturers & suppliers:

from subscribers:

“Within a few days of listing we had received several sales enquiries and had 4,000m2 of three of our different wall linings specified on a project in the ACT after the architects found them on ecospecifier.org...That's great.”

“I can personally attest to its usefulness and practicality, having used the service since its launch. Moreover, the widespread acceptance of the tool indicates its one of the more powerful agents for change at our disposal today.”

David Brown, General Manager, Powerscape

Dick Clarke, Building Designers Association of NSW, as Director - Sustainability

"I'm looking forward to our products being a part of ecospecifier. It's a well presented and reputable source of "green" products and systems which we find a lot of the consultants that we deal with use in their research work." Mikael Carlstrom, Composite Systems “ecospecifier was responsible for generating nearly 30% in new sales of our E0 MDF products last year and even more new enquiries about our products.” Brett Martin, Sales and Marketing Manager, Alpine MDF “We are pleased with such a quick response to the listing on ecospecifier as we received several inquiries thanks to the listing within a few days of it being online. ecospecifier is really helping our business to power on in the eco field due the nature of our product being 95% recycled, and offering green star points to applicable projects.” Steve Marlor, Powerscape

National

Sales

Manager,

“We found filling out your form a positive & thought provoking experience. Filling in the form not only made us think about the environmental aspects of the products in question but also alerted us to other environmental factors that we had not previously considered, both in relation to our products & overall business practices. This has had a positive effect on our future plans for all areas of our business & how we can reduce our ecological footprint. We firmly & believe that increased cooperation between manufactures & specifiers will certainly help our cause of improving practical environmental outcomes.’ Bob Cameron, Managing Director, Rockcote

“ecospecifier is a one-stop shop for eco-friendly products and represents great value as it saves our staff an enormous amount of research time.” Martyn Potter, Tech Manager, Defence Maintenance Management “ecospecifier is a very visionary product and one which I believe will benefit many designers...The information is easy to access and reference, an enormous body of research has obviously gone into the product and will ultimately save designers a lot of time.” Sam Di Mauro, Head of School Interior Design, Qld College of Arts, Griffith University “ecospecifier has been invaluable in the design process. Not only does it provide product information, it educates users in understanding the background environmental and health issues, thus enabling priorities for particular projects to be set based on the specific project circumstances. This allows analysis of a particular product, or system, or building approach against project specific environmental and health criteria.” Natasha Palich, Architect, William Boag Architect “ecospecifier is Australia’s only unparalleled tool that allows designers and specifiers to assess the environmental impact of products and materials even complex composites such as furniture… and deserves to be recognised for its contribution to increasing the awareness of both the supply and procurement sectors and for communicating solutions which avoid or reduce the environmental impact associated with specifications.” Maria Atkinson, as Executive Director, Green Building Council of Australia
