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 aims to impact on three big global issues: climate change, circularity and protection of our natural world.
In 2011, Kingspan committed globally to match 100% of our operational energy use through the use of renewable energy and the purchase of renewable energy certificates (to offset any remaining non renewable energy use) by 2020. We are now on track to achieve this goal through our three step strategy 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.
