Borders sustainable insulation company achieves a UK first to help decarbonise built environment sector

IndiNature, based in the Scottish Borders, has become the first UK company manufacturing industrial hemp insulation to achieve a full agrément certificate from the British Board of Agrément (BBA).

This means that the company’s innovative and sustainable insulation products can now be used by the housing and construction sectors at scale for both new build and retrofit projects.

BBA agrément certificates are a valuable and trustworthy symbol of excellence, recognised in the industry as a differentiating mark of product quality, performance and suitability for meeting UK building regulations.

IndiNature was established in 2016 to make healthy, environmentally friendly sustainable insulation materials on a commercial scale.  The company built its first cutting edge IndiNature Mill in the Scottish Borders to produce the insulation materials to help decarbonise construction.

Now, with IndiTherm certified, UK grown and made hemp-based insulation can be used in many applications as a simple alternative where conventional mineral wool insulation is used in construction, such as open timber frame studs, roofs and floors.
