We are committed to a high standard of sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Our plasterboard is manufactured from the most sustainable sources of gypsum available and we only use 100% recycled paper liners.
Knauf plasterboard is durable, does not naturally deteriorate and is also simple to recycle.
The same is true of our metal systems – built to last and entirely recyclable when required.
We work with contractors to reduce on-site waste and increase their recycling capacity.
Knauf systems achieve ‘A’ ratings in BRE’s Green Guide to Specification
Our Insulating Laminate range provides instant energy saving
Our plasterboard is easily recyclable
AQUAPANEL® prevents tile failures and associated waste from damaged materials
Safeboard X-ray plasterboard removes the need for lead in X-ray departments
Brio dry screed boards reduce the ongoing energy usage of a building by improving the efficiency of underfloor heating systems
Our high performance plasterboards reduce the volume of material required for a site by reducing the number of layers required for a given performance
Our factories are ultra-efficient and use sophisticated heat recovery systems to minimize energy wastage. We are continuing to investigate and invest in alternative energy sources to reduce our impact on the environment further.
Insulated with energy-efficient lighting throughout
Heat exchangers from driers save approximately 10% of our plant’s energy requirements
Sophisticated energy management software optimizes our energy usage
We partner The Carbon Trust on future targets
We are assessing and trialing alternative energy supplies including combined heat and power (CHP) and wind
Our sites are ISO 14001 certified for environmental management
We hold accreditation to ISO 14001 and BES 6001 at both our sites
