How saveBOARD Benefits People & The Planet

With climate change concerns and the ever-growing burden of waste, it is more important than ever that the construction industry looks for innovative solutions that can reduce environmental impact. saveBOARD, a revolutionary product that transforms waste into high-performance building materials, is one of the products that Mulford Australia offers to help builders, developers, and architects incorporate green solutions into their projects. 

One of a select few distributors in Australia offering saveBOARD, at Mulford Australia we pride ourselves on offering product solutions that contribute to conscious construction. We’ll explore the range of benefits of saveBOARD, from how it prioritises environmental responsibility to its superior performance and community impact. 

Benefits Of saveBOARD

From creating a circular economy to offering excellent structural qualities, and a positive impact in the community, here’s everything you need to know about the benefits of saveBOARD.

Reducing Environmental Impact

Producing 50% less carbon emissions than plywood, 75% less than plasterboard, and 90% less than cement board, saveBOARD has sustainability in mind. Every saveBOARD product diverts 25kg of packaging waste from landfills, contributing significantly to waste reduction goals, and thanks to the upcycling process, it significantly minimises energy consumption and carbon emissions compared to traditional building materials.

Functionality & Performance

Not only is saveBOARD a more environmentally friendly option, but it performs better than most traditional building products in brace testing and meets building code requirements in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.

Exhibiting high resistance to fire, moisture, and termites, saveBOARD ensures long-lasting structures with minimal ongoing maintenance. This durability translates to cost-effectiveness in the long run, reducing repair and replacement expenses. Plus, coming in a range of sizes and thicknesses, it offers versatility with exposed and paperfaced lining, roof boards, ceiling tiles, and other saveBOARD products suitable for various applications.


Unlike other solutions that use water, glue, chemicals, and formaldehyde to create a finished product, saveBOARD is created solely from pressure. Not only is this better for the environment, but it reduces exposure to harmful chemicals that could lead to health problems.

Additionally, the absence of these chemicals also makes saveBOARD far less toxic when burnt. As a Group 3 product, it has the same fire rating as plywood, MDF and particle board without additional fire retardants.


saveBOARD also makes a positive impact on communities, too. Collecting food and beverage cartons from Australian container deposit schemes in NSW, SA, QLD & WA), factory waste, and even soft plastics creates many local jobs. Manufacturing facilities located in Australia and New Zealand are contributing to the economic development of these regions, and sourcing materials responsibly by partnering with local businesses, further strengthening the economic fabric of their communities.

saveBOARD is a compelling product solution, but it requires individual and collective action to help shape a sustainable future in the construction industry. Here are just some of the ways you can help to support positive change:
