Advocacy & Influence
Kingspan is a signatory to Business Ambition for 1.5°C.
In 2019, Kingspan received the London Stock Exchange’s new Green Economy Mark classification.
By 2020 Kingspan will match 100% of its operational energy with renewable energy through a mix of energy reduction, on-site renewable energy generation and procurement of certified renewable energy. This includes a 27% reduction in energy intensity, a 6-fold reduction in energy carbon intensity (CO2 tonnes per €’000 of turnover) between 2012 and 2018, a 35% reduction in energy costs and 36 GWh on-site renewable energy (compared to a 2011 baseline). Data for these targets will be released later in 2021.
Kingspan works to encourage circular economy principles, upcycling 256 million PET bottles into an insulation in 2018.
