Our Commitment

Our Guiding Principles

As a family-owned company, we’re proud of the Knauf Insulation name and what it stands for. Customers worldwide have put their trust in the quality, consistency and performance of our products and our business values. So, everyone who does business with us recognizes the importance that, in our quest to become more sustainable, there are certain principles that we will not compromise:

  • The quality, consistency, and performance characteristics for which our products are known.
  • Our ability to apply technological advances across all product lines.
  • The safe and efficient manufacture of our products.
  • Our goal of reducing emissions from plant operations.
  • Our commitment to cost-effectively produce our products.

Driven by our mission and these principles, we are proud to produce fiber glass insulation with ECOSE® Technology.  ECOSE Technology is a revolutionary, more sustainable binder technology born from five years of intensive research and development. ECOSE Technology features rapidly renewable bio-based materials rather than non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals such as phenol, formaldehyde and acrylics commonly used in traditional fiber glass insulation products.

A sustainable, impact and legacy

All our products are made from renewable and abundant resources, such as recycled glass and sand. And we’re proud to be putting glass bottles back to work rather than into landfills. Our products are made with a minimum of 50% post-consumer recycled glass—about 26 million bottles each month, all collected at curbside. Our insulation products have an inherent impact on energy consumption as they save hundreds of times more energy in use than is required to manufacture them.

Through the development of revolutionary solutions like ECOSE Technology, we continually focus our efforts on providing solutions that reduce energy consumption and save resources to positively affect the lives of people today and tomorrow.
