For everyone who contributed to Knauf Insulation’s energy awareness drive during 2014 – the hard work has been internationally rewarded.

At the prestigious Energy Awards held in London last month, Knauf Insulation was ‘Highly Commended’ in the award category ‘Behavioural Change/Employee Engagement’.

“Being highly commended in such an important category is a great tribute to the hard work of everyone who has made energy awareness a priority this year,” said Group Energy Manager Berin Onur.

“Good energy awareness is about changing mindsets with everyone making a difference at every level. At Knauf Insulation we are seeing great results and I’m delighted that the Energy Awards judges recognised the importance of our achievements.”

The Energy Awards are an annual event organised by Water Energy & Environment magazine and are designed to reward companies that are cutting emissions and leading the way in innovative energy use.

“This year’s winners and finalists are demonstrating that they are leading the way in the Energy industry,” said the organisers in a statement after the event.

At Knauf Insulation, significant energy savings in manufacturing processes were made across the board in 2014 through hundreds of initiatives such as cleaning motors to ensure they are more efficient; reassessing room temperatures; improving air-tightness in workspaces; making sure equipment runs at optimum levels.

“Saving energy is a continuous journey and we always welcome new innovative ideas at every level that can help us make a difference,” said Berin.

Since the baseline year of 2010, Knauf Insulation has cut energy use by 13.8%.
