Climate change is the single most important issue facing the world today. To protect our planet, we need to prevent a 1.5° rise in global temperatures this century. To do this, carbon emissions need to be cut to net zero globally by 2050 – but we are currently on course to miss this goal substantially. We are also facing an unprecedented threat to our natural world, with 1 million species at risk in a planet where 2 billion tons of waste is generated annually.
Planet Passionate is our new 10-year group-wide global sustainability strategy which aims to create a meaningful impact on three big global issues: climate change, circularity and protection of our natural world.
In 2011 through our Net Zero Energy program, Kingspan committed globally to matching 100% operational energy with renewable energy by 2020. We are on track to achieve this target through a three pronged approach of Save More, Generate More and Buy More.
Kingspan entered a three-year partnership with the Born Free Foundation in 2019. Born Free has been fighting for lions’ survival since 1966 and is an established and accomplished charity in the field of conservation and protection. With this partnership we can join them in the fight. Working together, we will ensure this incredible species is safeguarded for the future.
