Sustainable production adds value to the quality of our products

Uponor’s products represent quality, reliability and professional design. They are typically used in applications with long lifetime requirements; often they are inside structures beyond direct reach.

Our processes are developed to guarantee security, durability, low energy use and the least possible burden to the environment. Our policy regarding quality, environment and occupational safety and health is an integral part of our business strategy. It is laid down by management and reviewed regularly regarding its adequacy. It fits well with the customer and market demands.

Uponor sets the highest standards for the manufacture, installation and use of our plumbing, heating and infrastructure solutions and we ensure that we meet and exceed the International standards that exist. For a systematic implementation of our quality principles and targets we pursue a certified quality management system according to the standard ISO 9001.

Environmental protection is at the core of our supply chain and central to all activities. We pursue a certified environmental management system according to the standard ISO 14001 and an Energy management system according to the standard ISO 50001, to help reach our environmental targets.

    • Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation.
      REACH addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment.

       

      How do we secure REACH compliance?

      Uponor supports the basic principles of the regulation, which is aimed at improving the management of chemicals and restoring society’s confidence in their use. Uponor is a downstream user according to Article 3 no. 13 of the REACH regulation and is therefore not obliged to register its products/systems. Within the set time limits, downstream users must guarantee that they are using only registered substances. Uponor’s suppliers have been requested to (pre-) register the listed substances / make the related preparations by the given timeline. These suppliers have confirmed the (pre-) registration or the intention to register their products in order to guarantee the REACH-compliance of Uponor products/systems. On a regular basis, Uponor monitors its suppliers fulfilment of their obligations under the Reach regulation regarding Uponor products/systems.

       

      Based on the information provided by its suppliers, Uponor hereby declares that its products/systems comply with the requirements of the Reach regulation. Should substances mentioned in the most recent list of substances of very high concern (SVHC), published by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), be contained in Uponor’s final products in concentrations above 0.1 % (w/w), Uponor shall disclose said substances in its data sheets.
