Truly Green Playgrounds

Posted on 18.11.2021 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 that they are now using recycled post-consumer textiles, post-consumer plastic bags and post-consumer ocean waste in their new Greenline Range.

We all know the world needs to change. We need to reduce CO² and KOMPAN have a clear plan for that. They are reducing their carbon footprint one sustainable playground at a time. It is not good enough to claim that you are truly green. KOMPAN are using a third-party to validate their CO² calculations, meaning you can get a carbon footprint on all of their products, empowering you to make greener choices.

Our current green material initiatives

Low Carbon Extruded Aluminium – Our low carbon aluminium is produced using renewable energy from water (hydro power), wind and solar. By using this process, the carbon footprint reduces per kg of aluminium to 4.0 which is less than a quarter of the global average.

HDPE Panels – Our HDPE Panels have a core of 100% post-consumer recycled food packaging. Seven years ago, they were comprised of 100% Virgin plastic but now, they are made from 80% post-consumer waste and only 20% virgin plastic.

PCM Decks -The decks found on our MOMENTS PCM range are made with 75% post-consumer recycled ocean plastic such as fishing nets.

Responsibly sourced wood – Our Pine and Robinia wood is only sourced from plantations or natural forests that are under responsible and sustainable forest management.
