At the core of what we do

Sustainability is at the heart of our everyday operations at Kingspan Century. We recognise the impact that our operations may have on the environment and are committed to working in an environmentally sustainable manner. This is achieved through the on-going requirements for our ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Certification — which ensures continual improvement of environmental performance.

Kingspan has set ambitious targets for reducing our effect on the environment in both business operations and through the lifecycle performance of  our products.

Sustainability in our process

Wind turbine
  • Concept and design phase
  • Material selection and application (low embodied energy)
  • Waste (typically reduced by 30%)
  • Structural efficiency – our systems offer high strength to weight ratio and therefore reduce material usage over traditional materials
  • Manufacturing processes
  • Transportation
  • On-site working and resources

Lifetime sustainability of our systems

  • Superior thermal and airtightness performance
  • Lightweight – up to 50% reduction in overall weight of the structure relative to traditional construction which can reduce the foundation requirements.
  • Reduces energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by up to 40% per annum, over the building’s lifetime, compared to existing traditional on-site construction methods
  • Our systems utilise Kingspan insulation, which is manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero ODP (ozone depletion potential) and low GDP (global warming potential)
  • Optimised building energy performance rating certification — achieving A and A+ ratings in the BRE Green Guide. 
  • Enhanced end of life re-use and recyclability — our frame sections are 75% recyclable

Driving change

zero in cloud shape

With regard to regulations, standards and the climate change agenda, Kingspan is renowned for not only meeting, but exceeding and even driving forward legislation that provide changes towards increasingly energy-efficient, low carbon buildings.

We are committed to sustainable and responsible procurement practices including the sourcing of timber from suppliers who maintain Chain of Custody compliance with either FSC ® or PEFC criteria.

In addition, we are FSC® certified (FSC® C109304) and PEFC certified (PEFC 16-37-1330).
