Sustainability at Knauf is practiced reality and firmly anchored in the company culture and values. For Knauf, this means taking on responsibility for customers, employees and the protection of the environment. As a company that looks back on a long mining tradition, Knauf is very much aware that any intervention in nature - however delicate and temporary - can upset nature's equilibrium. For this reason, Knauf does not leave areas fallow once gypsum has been extracted. The company makes sure that no environmental burden is left behind, and that the forest is recultivated, renaturalised and handed back to nature.
Knauf complies to the highest standards in the areas of environmental compatibility, sustainable building use and safety. Knauf relies upon the raw material gypsum, that is sustainable by nature. Gypsum products that are no longer used can be recycled and reintroduced to the value chain.
