We are delighted to officially launch KR Bon Reduction, our circular economy project, in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and the European Regional Development Fund.
This pilot scheme initiative is set to divert 2,498 tonnes of waste from landfill in the next 5 years.
Currently, we have a small, dedicated team who manually strip and separate incoming panels for reuse. However, KR Bon Reduction will scale up this year following the build of a Repurposing Facility at our Headquarters in Newburgh.
KR Bon Reduction offers businesses a sustainable alternative to discarding their cladding waste to landfill. Our clients now have the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint by donating their cladding waste to KR Group to be repurposed.
KR Bon Reduction has already been shortlisted for two Sustainability Awards this year, and is set to make waves in the construction industry’s net zero agenda. We expect to prevent 7,736 tonnes of carbon emissions by 2027.
Following KR Group’s recent announcement of becoming Carbon Neutral, we are excited to kick-start the next stage our sustainability journey.
Repurposed products are already being sold on our KR Bon website.
Our PIR Board offers superior insulation properties, requiring approximately half the thickness of traditional forms of insulation to meet the same level of thermal performance, and is a cost effective solution to new.
A 100mm thick sheet of our repurposed PIR Board costs £8 per sq m, whereas the same product new, from a leading trade supplier, would cost approx. £13.10 per sq m.
In the next five years, KR Bon Reduction could see 675 homes be insulated, at an estimated cost saving of up to £2.5million pounds.
If you would like to donate your used cladding waste, or if you are looking to buy repurposed products, please head to our KR Bon website here or get in touch at 01358 788907.
