In December 2010, Knauf Insulation published its very first Group Sustainability Report. And what did we learn? Well, insulation matters – so much so that we put it as the title of our first sustainability report!
An ambitious project, one of the first certified PassivHaus homes in the UK, has used an array of new build insulation products from Knauf Insulation’s portfolio to achieve outstanding energy efficiency.
For those now faced with implementing the new requirements under Approved Document Part L1A, Knauf Insulation is able to offer specific solutions for cavity walls, allaying any fears that this particular form of construction is at risk of demise.
Knauf Insulation has been recognised for the Knauf Insulation Internal Wall Insulation (IWI) System, in the Construction Products Association’s 2010 edition of Construction Products Innovation and Achievement (CPIA).
Knauf Insulation welcomes the news that from 2011, all homes for sale will have to advertise their energy efficiency ratings under new European Union legislation, as a further step forward in the drive for a sustainable future.
Knauf Insulation welcomes the revisions to Part L of the Building Regulations and Section 6 of Scotland’s Building Standards, which aim to reduce CO2 emissions across-the-board by an additional 25percent and 30percent in Scotland compared to current standards.
