Environmental Initiatives

Addressing environmental concerns

These days it's a fact that people are becoming ever more aware of environmental concerns. Working with Kingspan Access Floors verifies your commitment to environmental responsibility throughout your supply chain.

Recycling waste

Since 2014 Kingspan Access Floors has sent ZERO waste to landfill. Waste steel panels and off cuts are shredded on site in Hull and recycled within the manufacturing process. We compact general waste and recycle cardboard, metal and vinyl waste. Furthermore, pallets and chipboard are reprocessed or turned into biofuel.

Net Zero energy

We are committed to renewable energy, which is why we installed 1,000 photovoltaic solar panels at our UK manufacturing site to help us achieve net zero energy by 2020. The installation is producing about 200kW of electricity a year. In 2015 we installed biomass boilers that use our waste chipboard and provide 98 per cent of all our heating needs.

What's more, no water is used in our manufacturing processes, ensuring we are not taking water that can be used elsewhere.
