Kingspan has recently published its first ever Planet Passionate Annual report, tracking the first year of progress against its 10 year Planet Passionate Strategy launched in 2019.
Planet Passionate is Kingpan’s 10-year global sustainability programme
aiming to impact three significant global issues: climate change, circularity and protection of the natural world.
Last year Kingspan reduced emissions from operations by 5.2%, the first step towards the target of net zero carbon manufacturing by 2030, with the aim of reducing absolute emissions across its operations to the lowest possible level with carbon-neutralising measures.
This is a massive transformation exercise across more than 165 of Kingspan’s current manufacturing facilities worldwide, in addition to supporting new acquisitions to decarbonise their operations as quickly as possible.
Kingspan will also call on its primary raw material suppliers to commit to reducing the carbon intensity of their supplied raw materials by 50% by 2030 in a bid to reduce the embodied carbon in its products even further.
