Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation has achieved A and A+ BRE Green Guide 2008 Summary Ratings. The ratings were awarded by BRE Global, which used its new Environmental Profiles Methodology for Pipe Insulation Products to assess the environmental impacts of the products across their entire life cycles from cradle to grave. The 2008 Green Guide rating system uses such data to classify performance in a number of key areas and awards a Summary Rating on a scale from E (worst) up to A+ (best).
All of the products for which BRE Green Guide 2008 Summary Ratings were produced and their respective Summary Ratings published on BRE’s Green Book Live
The BRE has not published Green Guide Ratings for mineral fibre pipe insulation products, as the mineral fibre industry declined permission for its data to be used for the creation of mineral fibre pipe insulation Green Guide ratings. Those interested are invited to consider why the mineral fibre industry does not wish Green Guide ratings to be published for its pipe insulation products. What could be worse than having no published Green Guide rating at all?
