Putting our Energy into Change

We're pioneering new technologies and better ways of building for a low carbon future.

Our Commitment to a Sustainable Future

At Kingspan we are committed to operating a sustainable business that delivers sustainable products and solutions. With this in mind, we have pledged to continually advance and hone sustainable business practices across seven key areas.

Energy and Carbon, Kingspan Insulated Panels New Zealand

Energy & Carbon


We are on our way to becoming a Net Zero Energy company by 2020. As part of this commitment we have joined RE100, a collection of companies that have publicly committed to sourcing 100% renewable energy across their operations by 2020.  In 2016 our renewable energy use reached 57%, beating our halfway target.  This meant that we were named for a second successive year on the Climate “A” List by CDP, the international not-for-profit that measures environmental impact of thousands of companies around the world. 

Waste & Water


We aim to minimise waste and water usage associated with the manufacture, distribution and end of life management of our products.
