Sustainability is part of our life. Let's provide safe and carefree living.
The future is in our hands. We firmly believe that it is all our responsibility to protect and improve our world’s economic, environmental and social systems, to ensure safe, healthy and carefree living for current as well as future generations.
Together, we have the unique opportunity to create a better world
Mark van Loon, Senior Vice President Sustainability and Innovation, Pipelife
With our solutions in infrastructure, we fight water scarcity and make cities more resilient. For buildings we are working towards energy neutral living, and in agriculture we ensure food supply while saving on valuable resources and protecting our soils.
With our piping solutions, we are here to increase the resilience of communities against climate change, protect natural resources, and enable a transition to a low carbon economy.
Most of our products are 100% recyclable and we keep increasing the amount of recycled materials in production. Our environment concerns each one of us, this is why we work on leaving behind the smallest environmental impact possible.
It is our duty to care for disadvantaged communities around the world. We are active in numerous social projects and initiatives worldwide, and provide help in every region where we are present.
Every year, we increase the ratio of recycled plastics in production while ensuring the high product quality our clients rely on.

Our self-imposed environmental goals
In addition to our active contribution to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, we have also set our own environmental goals.
Our "Sustainability Roadmap 2015-2020" represents a self-imposed commitment to continuously reduce water, energy and electricity usage, as well CO2 emissions, while increasing recycled plastics in our production.
Targets for 2020 have been met, and once again achieved a year earlier than planned. View the award winning reportfrom our mother company Wienerberger, which outlines the Group’s sustainability strategy and commitments.
More than 100 years service life
One of the aspects considered in the Life Cycle Assessment is service life, which refers to the length of time a product can actually stay in operation. Our PE pressure pipe systems for gas, potable water and marine applications can last up to 100 years, or more.
How is this possible? Read the position paper by the European Association for Plastic Pipes TEPPFA and PE100+.
Protecting the earth from plastic waste
There is growing public concern about plastics entering the environment. Most of the plastic found originates from carelessly discarded bottles and packaging, but some are resin pellets from the manufacturing industry.
To stop plastic from polluting our environment, Plastics Europe created the Zero Pellet Loss initiative. In 2015, this initiative was united with the global Operation Clean Sweep® program. Some of our production sites already have these screens in place. However, ALL Pipelife businesses have committed to the installation of filters during 2020.
Measuring product sustainability
To provide more transparency around the environmental footprint of plastic pipe systems on our environment, especially when compared with other piping materials, we have issued an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) calculation tool, available as an iOS app for your iPad.
