Mammoth’s manufacturer (InsulPro) is an organisation under-pinned by a philosophy of creating better environments.
Mammoth insulation products are manufactured by InsulPro Manufacturing Ltd - a New Zealand manufacturer of premium quality thermal and acoustic polyester insulation. InsulPro manufacture for the New Zealand and export markets and their business is under-pinned by a philosophy of creating better environments.
Below are just some of our environmental initiatives that make us a great eco insulation option:
InsulPro has proudly been awarded the World’s first insulation manufactuer to be carboNZero certified.
We feel it is important to consider the environment in all facets of our business and so measuring and monitoring our impact, is the only way to understand how we can improve. Our measured carbon emissions will be off-set, monitored and continually reduced through a variety of smarter business practices.
We can also boast that all our Mammoth polyester insulation products are Red List Free.
Red List Free
The Living Building Challenge™ developed a Red-List of prohibited materials under the Declare programme, to provide transparency around building products. Declare is a 'nutrition label' for the international building industry and is a voluntary self-disclosure programme aiming for healthier and more ecological products in construction.
Red List Free products are shown to be free from Declare’s red list ingredients. Click here to learn more
We worked alongside one of our environmentally conscious customers to construct Tuhoe Headquarters in Whakatane – NZ’s most environmentally and socially sustainable building – built in accordance with the stringent Living Building Challenge’s guidelines.
Environmental Choice is the official environmental labelling programme. This programme, which commenced in 1992, operates independently from the government but the label is government owned and endorsed. Since 1992, the government has financially supported the scheme, both directly and indirectly.

From Waste to Warmth
We take fibre made from plastic bottles, which would otherwise be waste, and manufacture the fibre from the bottles into polyester insulation that creates warmer, healthier homes and buildings.
The Mammoth thermal and acoustic insulation range is made from 100% polyester fibre. Polyester is made from a substance called PET, which is what plastic bottles are made from. Another benefit is that PET can easily be recycled. Plastic bottles made from PET can be washed and ground up into flakes, heated and then extruded into polyester fibre. This is how the recycled fibre used by InsulPro is made.
InsulPro has worked with recycled polyester fibre for over a decade and is committed to using the maximum possible in all products. Along with using recycled fibres, our product is recyclable, this means all of our waste is able to be fed back through the manufacturing process. Polyester, PET, is the same material that plastic bottles are made from.
All Mammoth products are safe and easy to work with. They will not cause irritation when touched and are chemical free – no pesticides, insecticides and formaldehyde. All our polyester insulation products are thermally bonded which means there are no glues or bonding agents.
