2021 was the second year of our ambitious ten-year programme to further boost the environmental ethos of Kingspan. This builds upon the foundations laid over our previous ten-year Net Zero Energy programme that completed successfully in 2020. The current programme encompasses stretching goals across twelve targets (see below).
We have recently announced revised 1.5⁰C aligned science-based targets bringing them in line with our Planet Passionate programme goals to reduce Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Group has now committed to reducing absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 90% by 2030 from a 2020 base year. It has also pledged to reduce absolute Scope 3 GHG emissions by 42% within the same timeframe. We will also implement a €70 per tonne internal carbon charge from 2023 which will galvanise full alignment across the organisation.
