What makes Uponor Blue products sustainable?


Uponor Blue products can be sustainable in different ways – either by using renewable or recycled materials in their composition or by ensuring resource savings through greater performance. While the Uponor Blue offering helps you meet your carbon reduction goals, it also meets the same standards, requirements, and performance as the traditional products. 

We provide full data transparency to ensure the sustainability of our products. This makes it easier for you to demonstrate the positive impact of your project. All our sustainability approaches are independently validated with third-party certifications. Thanks to our Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and International Sustainability & Carbon Certifications (ISCC Plus), you can be confident about the amount of CO2 reduction when you choose a Uponor Blue product. 

Mass Balance

The Mass Balance approach is one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods to cut the carbon footprint from infrastructure product manufacturing.

It consists of partially replacing fossil-based virgin material with renewable feedstock, which can be traced back to the first collection points. It enables gradually shifting from fossil to renewable raw materials, with little impact on the product cost.

Environmental Product Declaration

The EPD is a standardized and third-party verified document reporting a product’s environmental impact. It assesses the product’s entire life cycle to provide its carbon footprint.

This allows forward-thinking organisations to reliably compare products fulfilling the same function. Uponor already has many of its products validated by an EPD to transparently report on the environmental impact.

Fit for 55

The EU has set itself a binding target of achieving climate neutrality by 2050. As an intermediate step towards this objective, the EU is committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030.
The “Fit for 55” package is a set of proposals to revise and update EU legislation to ensure that new policies and laws align with the climate goals for 2030 and onwards. A number of new initiatives are also included in the package.
With Uponor Blue, you are on track to meet the carbon reduction goal of 55% by 2030 – and carbon neutrality by 2050.
