Kingspan Campaign Update: Environmental Groups Stand with Workers Calling out Greenwashing
Workers calling out greenwashing inspired 26 environmental and environmental justice groups to call for an investigation into Kingspan’s marketing claims. LNS moderated a call last month, inviting allies to hear directly about safety violations and exposure to toxic materials at Kingspan plants in California. Now local and national organizations—including the California Green New Deal Coalition, Communities for a Better Environment, Center on Race Poverty and the Environment, Physicians for Social Responsibility – Los Angeles, Greenpeace USA, 350.org, Food and Water Watch, among others—have issued a public letter calling on SCS Global Services to investigate the claims made by insulation manufacturer Kingspan in an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for its star product, QuadCore insulated metal panels.
