For our children and our planet

Sustainably conscious playgrounds

Low carbon emission, made green playground
For a company like KOMPAN, more than 80% of carbon emissions created during production comes from the raw materials we use. In an effort to change this, we are committed to lowering our carbon emissions by increasing our use of sustainable raw materials. The end result is playgrounds that don't harm our planet.
Sustainably conscious playgrounds

There are 2 ways to go

1. Playgrounds that are made green

By using recycled waste sources, we are able to create playgrounds with a low carbon emission footprint.

Of course! Show me how you work with sustainability

2. Playgrounds that are born green

Playgrounds made with nature's own materials are also known as nature playgrounds. We use Robinia wood from sustainable forestry. You can also go even greener with FSC-certified wood.

All KOMPAN playground products come with a calculation of their carbon emission footprint and are verified by a third party. This way, you'll see how much carbon emission has been derived from its production.
