The first pillar of our sustainable development programme is circularity. We want to avoid resources and raw materials being lost as waste, and we also want to minimise emissions. 

Many of our existing products are already helping customers, end-users and others to become more sustainable. At the same time, we continue to integrate sustainability into our activities and processes.

The 4 main topics under this pillar are:

  1. Responsible water management
  2. Reduction of CO₂ emissions
  3. Rational use of materials
  4. Waste management

6 Clean water and sanitation

Responsible water management

The first topic is responsible water management, which is linked to the SDG of "Clean water and sanitation". Our products already contribute to this SDG and it also plays an important role within our own organization: by 2026 and for every ton of produced product, we want to use 20% less drinking water. This will be done gradually and in different ways. For instance, we will explore ways of increasing the use of rainwater for sanitary or cooling purposes.

13 Climate Action


Reducing the CO2 footprint

The next topic is reducing the COfootprint, which is linked to the SDG of "Climate action". We all know that carbon dioxide or CO2 plays an important role in global warming and, therefore, we have set the following targets: we will reduce our CO2 emissions in our production processes, especially in our own transport needs, and all our energy usage by one-half per ton of produced products by 2030. Therefore, we will, for instance, purchase more energy-efficient machinery and shift towards low carbon transport means. Moreover, we will only use electricity coming from renewable energy sources by 2025. We will achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

SDG 11 12


Material efficiency

The third topic within Circularity is material efficiency, which is linked to the SDGs of "Sustainable cities and communities" and "Responsible consumption and production". We are working on increasing the recycled content in our products. Our target is to increase the use of recycled materials by more than one-half by 2025. 

Focusing on material efficiency also means addressing packaging. We are aiming to use carton packaging and HDPE pressure pipe caps entirely made from recycled materials. Initiatives to reach this goal by 2025 are ongoing.

SDG 11 12


Waste management

The fourth and final topic on Circularity involves waste management, which falls under the same SDGs as material efficiency. By 2025, we want to reduce production-related waste at our factories by 10% per ton produced product.
