Keeping ambition on track
In addition, the company has set short-term targets for 2025.
These targets are significant because they offer measurable milestones of success to ensure the company’s sustainable ambitions are kept on track and everyone is responsible for delivering success.
For example, 2025 targets include shrinking the embodied carbon of our products by 15% and sending zero production waste to landfill. We also aim to reduce our accident rate by 55% by 2023.
The sustainability chapter also examines how #ForABetterWorld builds on the company’s sustainability successes.
Sustainable progress since 2010
Despite a significant increase in manufacturing output over the years, Knauf Insulation has reduced energy consumption and emissions by 23%, cut landfill waste by 67% and reduced Lost Time Accidents by 63.6% since 2010.
Knauf Insulation’s Group Sustainability Director, Vincent Briard, says: “We will have to be very ambitious to meet our 2025 targets, but we have solid foundations in place to move forward.”
