Kingspan Insulated Panels (Kingspan Ltd) has continually been at the forefront of industry initiatives to minimise carbon emissions and energy usage. These efforts have now been officially recognised with the company as a manufacturer of insulated metal cladding systems being certified to the prestigious Carbon Trust Standard. The Carbon Trust Standard is designed to provide a robust, objective analysis of a company??s carbon performance over a number of years.
Kingspan Insulated Panels has undertaken a range of measures to reduce its environmental footprint at its UK sites in recent years. These include transforming the Holywell facility into a zero waste to landfill site and installing a 2900m2 Kingspan PowerPanel PV array on the roof alongside a host of energy efficiency improvements at all sites. Employee involvement is another key aspect to the efforts to reduce energy consumption, with procedures in place to ensure all Kingspan staff are fully briefed on, and follow, the company??s Environmental Management System and Environmental Policy. Additional everyday green practice is also encouraged through guidelines on issues such as reducing energy consumption.
