Building sustainability into everything we do
Making the sustainable, attainable
Wavin's six global sustainability programs
As a global market player, we wish to make a difference and become an industry leader in sustainability.
But to dream big, we need to act big. Hence, we commit ourselves to become sustainable in everything we do. From the way we produce, transport, innovate and install our products - to the way we conduct our business and manage our people.
Our Sustainability Journey is well and truly underway at Wavin. Let’s work together to help build a better future for generations to come.
Wavin is contributing to the achievement of the following UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We continuously develop innovative solutions for safe and sustainable water usage that support vulnerable communities and help our customers meet the challenges of climate change.
We create a positive impact on (local) communities by improving accessibility to basic human needs such as education and safe water in regions where infrastructure is lacking behind.
Our materials and products are designed to be reused and recycled to maximise environmental value. To close the material loop, we continuously improve our procurement processes and contribute to the increase of recyclate usage.
Clear targets are key for a sustainability program. We want to create full transparency and disclosure to all stakeholders, so we develop tools, processes, and skills to collect high quality data.
We continuously optimise our production and value chain processes to lower greenhouse gas emissions. This is achieved with sustainable energy, SMART solutions, and other innovative fine tunings.
We are actively involved in policy development and build strategic alliances to promote sustainability, act upon it and further grow awareness.
We are already making a difference
Our actions are helping to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges around water supply, sanitation, climate-resilient cities and building performance.
Treetanks for greener cities
Trees provide shade, absorb carbon dioxide, release oxygen and fresh air, and provide a cooling effect. To support the growth of trees in urban environments, we developed TreeTank®. Our solution allows trees to grow and helps to prevent roots from destroying roads and pavements.
