IKO has more than 30 factories and 4,500 employees worldwide. As a prominent player in roofing materials, liquid waterproofing and insulation, we attach great importance to sustainability and our contribution to the world.
Every year each European consumes nearly 15 tons of raw materials and he/she produces no less than 500 kg of waste.
We will have to do something about this together, and if everyone (consumers and companies) make an effort we will together have a better world to work and live in.
The construction sector has a significant impact on the environment. As far as IKO is concerned, it is all the more important to take steps towards sustainability at all levels and to increase the re-use of materials.
We do this by means including sustainable and ecologically responsible solutions.
But we do even more …
At IKO we produce all the components ourselves. This enables us to choose sustainable materials for the production process to the extent possible, that can be easily recycled, repaired or re-used.
Our focus on improvement and efficiency has results including lower energy consumption, a reduction in or better control of waste material flows and better performing products.
We understood our DNA as the way our employees contribute to reducing the ecological footprint, and how we cooperate with each other. Or call it how we behave.
At IKO we produce all the components ourselves: bituminous and plastic roofing felt, high-efficiency PIR insulation and liquid waterproofing systems. This enables us to choose sustainable materials for the production process to the extent possible, that can be easily recycled, repaired or re-used.
