We are...

Climate change is the single most important issue facing the world today. To protect our planet, we need to prevent a 1.5° rise in global temperatures this century. To do this, carbon emissions need to be cut to net zero globally by 2050 – but we are currently on course to miss this goal substantially. We are also facing an unprecedented threat to our natural world, with 1 million species at risk in a planet where 2 billion tons of waste is generated annually.

What is Planet Passionate?

Planet Passionate is our new 10-year group wide global sustainability strategy aims to impact on three big global issues: climate change, circularity and protection of our natural world.

Our Net Zero journey to date

In 2011, Kingspan committed globally to match 100% of our operational energy use through the use of renewable energy and the purchase of renewable energy certificates (to offset any remaining non-renewable energy use) by 2020.  We are now on track to achieve this goal through our three-step strategy of ‘Save More, Generate More and Buy More’.
