Anyone can help the Planet
Due to human activity, we feel the changes taking place in the climate every day. Only 2 ° C separates us from the tipping point. If we do not reduce greenhouse gases and stop the temperature rise, the changes may already be irreversible. Environmental pollution and endangered animal species are a closed circle that must be stopped immediately. That's why we need to act! That is a common challenge that we must face together!

Planet Passionate, what are we aiming for?

1. Energy
  • We want to achieve zero net energy consumption by 2030.
  • We will produce our renewable energy at the level of 20%.
  • Our goal is also to install photovoltaic panels in all Balex Metal locations.
2. Carbon dioxide
  • We want to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2030.
  • We are striving to make the Balex Metal fleet zero-emission already in 2025.
  • We are committed to halving the CO2 generated when delivering supplies to our partners
3. Circularity
  • Our priority is also circular waste management. Everyone at Balex Metal will play a huge role in the implementation of this plan.
  • Our manufacturing processes will become zero-waste by 2030.

  • We have also become part of ambitious ocean clean-up projects.
Planet Passionate 2030, our vision

Fighting climate change, environmental protection and circular waste management are priority actions that must bring about a huge change in the way we operate within 10 years. The implementation of the sustainable development strategy is to serve the environment, us, and our generations. Planet Passionate is a vision that is to change all of us, and thus affect the image of the environment around us. It is not a dry project to be carried out, but specific tasks and goals that we can only achieve together.

Our initiatives

Recycling and green office

All employees of Balex Metal will take part in workshops on waste management in a closed circuit. Not only will we know the full course of the recycling process, but we will also learn how to segregate as much as possible. How can we reduce the daily production of rubbish and operate following the principles of a green office. The project is carried out in cooperation with local waste disposal plants.

We limit the amount of packaging film

Let's limit the amount of waste produced! - What's the way to do that? The most effective and the simplest - let's limit our packaging needs together. From April 2020, we are resigning from the application of a protective film on the internal cladding of sandwich panels. The production of Balex Metal sandwich panels will now be standing with one foil on the outside.

Protection of lions

Africa's lion population has dropped by as much as half over the past two decades. That's why the entire Kingspan Group works with the Born Free Foundation to help save these animals.
