Leading the way with sustainable play

Posted on 14.10.2021 in Company News , KOMPAN

World-leading play & fitness manufacturer, KOMPAN, have researched and implemented ways to reduce their environmental footprint for over half a century. It is through their dedication to sustainability and research and testing, that they are now using post-consumer waste to build their playgrounds. In the playground industry, more than 80% of carbon emissions come from the raw materials used, so KOMPAN, have chosen to face the challenges head first, with the goal to develop new sustainable raw materials.

As a result, KOMPAN can now deliver full solution playgrounds that are Made Green or Born Green. Born Green products are made of natures own building material, wood from sustainable forestry. That is why they come with very low carbon emission. Made Green products are made green because they are made of post-consumer recycled materials such as ocean waste, used textiles, food packaging waste, used plastic bags, etc. Our new Made Green, GreenLine, products come with 50% reduction in carbon emission versus the 2014 alike products (dependent of chosen product).

 

We are as dedicated to sustainability as we are to children’s play. We believe that it’s our responsibility to care for the environment today, to ensure a better future for our children tomorrow. Not to mention that lowering carbon emissions is on the agenda of the UN and is at the heart of every responsible organisation and person.

 

TEXMADE™

Since 1960, textile waste has increased by 900%. By combining post-consumer textiles and post-consumer plastic bags, KOMPAN has created a concept called TEXMADE™ and the result is a durable playground post with a 82% reduction in carbion emission per kg. KOMPAN uses the poorest of the textile waste, the textile waste that is just about to end up at the incineration or landfill.
