Our Technical and Plant Managers are often at the head of community projects and sponsorships. And beyond reducing environmental impacts that we may have on local communities, we seek to become positively involved in the communities where we operate, beyond being a source of employment. Here are just some of the highights that demonstrate this commitment to community engagement.
In the US, the pilot of the Energy Response Corps helps homeowners assess where they can make energy savings in all aspects of the home, from insulation to HVAC systems.
In Serbia, for Ecology Week, we held a series of events to inform the local community about environmental protection and energy saving.
In the UK, the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Buildings, of which Knauf Insulation is a founding member, facilitates closer working between business, government and community organisations on all aspects of energy efficiency in buildings to help homeowners achieve energy savings in their homes. Employees in the UK also cycled 360 miles raising £6,500 for two chosen charities – the construction industry's homelessness charity CRASH and Wirral Hospice St John’s, both causes that are close to employees' hearts.
