ANNUAL REVIEW SHOWCASES KNAUF INSULATION’S ACHIEVEMENTS IN A YEAR OF CHALLENGES
We are excited to announce the launch of our 2022 Annual Review ‘Insulation Matters’.
Dominique Bossan, CEO of Knauf Insulation Europe/Middle East/Asia and Member of the Knauf Group Management Committee, said: “There’s no doubt that 2022 has been a challenging year. However, once again, our people have risen to the challenge. What really makes our people unique is their commitment. Our 2022 Annual Review reflects this.
“Although our upcoming sustainability targets are quite ambitious, we’re committing to them and not shying away. We are moving in the right direction, increasing our resources to meet our new ambitious targets.”
2022 has also been a landmark year in our ambition to Deliver a Circular Economy, with the launch of our pioneering RESULATION recycling facility in Visé, Belgium.
Marc Bosmans, Group Sustainability Director for Knauf Insulation, said: “One of the highlights of the year has been the opening of our Glass Mineral Wool recycling facility, which is a major step forward to help us meet our commitment to take back 25% of customer waste from job sites, as part of our For a Better World strategy.”
