Making Strides Toward Our Sustainability Targets


At Kingspan, our mission is to accelerate a net-zero emissions future-built environment with people and planet at its heart. Planet Passionate is our 10-year global sustainability program that sets several ambitious targets across four focus areas: carbon, energy, circularity and water. These targets will help Kingspan and our partners contribute to a clean energy future, manage the earth’s resources more sustainably and protect our natural environment.

One of Kingspan’s Global Planet Passionate energy targets is to add solar PV systems to all our wholly owned facilities and achieve 60% direct renewable energy use by 2030. We’re already making progress toward that goal. In fact, 79 solar PV panel installations at Kingspan locations around the world generated 35.4 GWh of clean energy in 2023. That’s enough clean solar energy to electrify 2,900 American homes per year*.

Planet Passionate touches every aspect of Kingspan’s business, from our material suppliers and employees to our customers and the communities in which we work. We’re committed to working together to address the negative material impacts we have on our environment and community. By setting robust, specific targets like those outlined below and pursuing an accelerated pace for progress, we can make a significant difference on Kingspan’s environmental footprint and the behavior of the commercial construction sector. Planet Passionate is truly a pillar of Kingspan and is creating an important distinction for how we do business.
