Sustainability and Supply Chain
As the market leader and a non-stop innovator, quality excellence and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do. Whilst we have a strong focus on the thermal, fire safety and acoustic performance of our products, our pursuit of sustainability has much wider horizons.
Whilst we are dedicated to supplying sustainable high performance insulation solutions for enhanced energy efficiency in buildings, we also continually strive for improvements in our manufacturing and supply chain operations to improve quality and minimise our impact on the environment.
In 2020 we launched our Sustainability Strategy “For A Better World”. The strategy reveals our future ambitions and focuses on four key sustainable goals: Put People First, Achieve Carbon Zero, Deliver Circular Economy and Create Better Buildings.
