Red letter day for Knauf Insulation

KNAUF Insulation has announced it has become the first insulation manufacturer in Europe to have its glass mineral wool product range accredited as DECLARE ‘Red List Free’, which allows contractors and installers to see what is in a product to help them make informed choices.

This includes a ‘nutrition-style’ list of ingredients, and whether it contains chemicals featured on the DECLARE ‘Red List’ – substances designated as harmful to health and the environment. It also includes information about where a product comes from.

“As demand for green construction grows, DECLARE labels will provide increasingly important third-party verification of sustainability claims made by manufacturers,” explained Vanessa Rae, marketing director at Knauf Insulation Northern Europe.
