We take our responsibility seriously

Uponor's Environmental Agenda

Driving sustainable change

Reviewing and reducing our impact on the environment

Climate change and scarcity of resources are burning topics in building and construction industry. The built environment is resource intensive and, for example, is responsible for close to 40% of global energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Operating in an industry with a strong influence on sustainable living, we want to contribute to a more sustainable future by setting new standards and leading by example. At Uponor we have a long-standing commitment to sustainability and our goal is to become a recognized leader in sustainable building and infrastructure solutions. Our product, service and solution portfolio is built for responding to the changes and challenges of the coming decades.
