Knauf Insulation, a leading manufacturer of sustainable insulation products, has expanded its green credentials after its plant in Queensferry, North Wales, achieved the BS EN ISO 14001:2004 standard.

This is the internationally recognised standard for businesses and how they manage their impact on the environment and involves the introduction of a management system to control the use of natural resources, the handling and treatment of waste and the energy consumption of the plant.

Knauf Insulation is already recognised as a company leading the way on sustainability in the construction industry, both through its products and how they are manufactured and deployed. Its Queensferry plant was awarded the BS EN ISO accreditation with no corrective actions specified, demonstrating Knauf’s existing commitment to the environment and energy efficiency.

Commenting on the accreditation, Kevin Day, plant manager at Queensferry for Knauf Insulation, said: “This award shows that we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. We put a lot of hard work into developing and manufacturing innovative insulation products that have a positive impact on sustainability. However, all the hard work we do to produce our insulation solutions would be cancelled out if we were producing them in detriment to the environment. We are a responsible manufacturer and this accreditation has vindicated the processes we already had in place to ensure that we continue to be.”
