Knauf Drywall achieve environmental standards

The ISO 14001 award endorses Knauf Drywall’s environmental management policies and practices at the UK factories – including energy efficient low-emission, low-waste manufacturing and extensive recycling.

A proportion of recycled material – from production waste and contractors’ offcuts – is returned to the production process, avoiding the need to send waste to landfill. Knauf Drywall pioneered carbon neutral plasterboard in the UK with Knauf Futurepanel and they also actively promote recycling from building sites and has a zero waste policy in the factories at Sittingbourne in Kent and Immingham on Humberside.
