Our Vision for Sustainable Buildings

The buildings of the future need to deliver more than ever before. They must combat climate change by maximizing energy efficiency through superior thermal performance while incorporating products that are lower in embodied carbon across their entire lifecycle. Using less energy is not enough; buildings should generate their own energy too.
Buildings should be healthy and inspirational, optimizing the benefits of daylight and fresh, clean air. They should be designed, constructed and operated to protect natural resources and conserve water as much as possible. Above all they must be safe, protecting people and property from fire and other natural hazards.
At Kingspan we believe all of this is possible and that, with advanced products and digitalization, buildings can also deliver more value.
This belief underpins our Planet Passionate sustainability program and the work we are doing at our IKON Innovation Center. These two initiatives, along with our advanced insulation and building envelope solutions, will deliver our vision of Better Buildings for a Better World.

Our 10 Drivers for Sustainable Buildings

We believe that in order to achieve truly future-proofed, sustainable built environments, all buildings must be designed, constructed and operated to deliver 10 key benefits for the wellbeing of people and our planet.
Explore our strategy below to learn how we are driving innovation in our products and our business to deliver these 10 key drivers, with the ultimate goal of meeting the IPCC 1.5º climate change scenario.

Featured Content: Sustainable Water Management Webinar

In this on demand webinar we discuss why we need to shift from thinking about the traditional urban water management model to a more circular approach that considers rainwater harvesting and stormwater runoff.

Watch to learn more about sustainable water management strategies and considerations for urban building design.
