For our children and our planet

Sustainably conscious playgrounds

For a company like KOMPAN, more than 80% of carbon emissions come from the raw materials we use. So, we have dedicated our efforts to lowering our carbon emissions by using more sustainable raw materials. The result we aim for - playgrounds that do not harm our planet.
Let's be sustainably conscious

There are 2 ways to go

1. Playgrounds that are made green

Playgrounds made in materials that we have made greener. To do that, we use recycled waste sources that give these playgrounds a low carbon emission footprint.

Of course! Show me how you work with sustainability

2. Playgrounds that are born green

Playgrounds where we use natural hard woods like Robinia. This sort has a long durability and does not require any chemical wood preservatives. Our Robinia wood also comes with FSC™-certification.


We've made it easy for you

All KOMPAN playground products come with a calculation of the product's carbon emission footprint. This way, you can easily see just how much carbon emission has been derived in the production of it. All our calculations are verified by a third party - that is your proof that our sustainability claims are truthful.

The wood we use

A playful tree sort

The Robinia tree is crooked and whimsical in its look. The tree's bark has deep lines that makes it look old and wise.

Sustainable forestry

Robinia grows faster than any other tree sort and is harvested from sustainable forestry in Europe.

Robinia lumber

Underneath the bark, the Robinia lumber has a beautiful, warm colour. It is soft for children to touch.

Naturally durable

Robinia wood is nature's most durable wood type. It is known for it's natural preservatives that makes it ideal for a long lifetime in the outdoors

Design on nature's terms

All Robinia play structures are pre-assembled at the factory to fit the naturally uneven wood pieces together.

Play close to nature

The Robinia wood blends in perfectly with natural surroundings.

Sustainably conscious is becoming the new standard

As we find new and more sustainable materials we make sure to incorporate them in all our standard components.

All decks for one of our best selling ranges, MOMENTS™, are now as a new standard made of 75% ocean recycled waste.

New processes

We've developed a more sustainable extruding process. All extruded aluminum is now made using a low-carbon process.


All KOMPAN standard panels now have a core made from 80% post-consumer recycled waste.
