Last month, our Troldtekt colleagues were presented with the prestigious HRH Crown Prince Frederik International Business Award, which honours companies that promote Danish exports and recognises those who place sustainability at the heart of their operations and solutions.
Troldtekt A/S – which joined the Kingspan family earlier this year – was selected by the esteemed jury in the ‘Green Solutions’ category, acknowledging the company’s success in entering the German market, its pioneering sustainable acoustic solutions, and its climate impact commitments, which include reducing emissions and resource consumption.
Central to the decision to honour Troldtekt was the company’s focus on the circular economy and strategic work with the Cradle-to-Cradle design concept over the past decade. The concept allows Troldtekt’s wood-based acoustic panels to be safely recycled and returned to the biological cycle as a soil conditioner. Furthermore, earlier this year, Troldtekt launched acoustic panels that are manufactured using a newly patented cement type that has a reduced carbon footprint.
The award was presented to Jesper Kvist, Country & Business Development Manager and Tina Kristensen, Head of Sustainability – representing German subsidiary Troldtekt GmbH and Troldtekt A/S respectively – by HRH Crown Prince Frederik at a ceremony that took place at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen on Friday 26th August.
The export award is presented in a collaboration between the Royal Danish Court, the Danish Export Association and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, chaired by HRH Crown Prince Frederik.
Commenting on the award, Tina Kristensen, Head of Sustainability at Troldtekt A/S, said
