In the season of joy and gratitude, we would like to express our thanks and appreciation to our customers and partners.

Moving water forward for sustainable built environments for everyone

Uponor celebrates the World Green Building Week, organized by the World Green Building Council, between 12–16 September 2022. This year, the world's largest sustainability campaign's theme is #BuildingforEveryone. Close to 40% of global energy-related carbon emissions come from the built environment. Therefore, the building sector must create opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings and infrastructure.

Whistleblowing service for Uponor’s stakeholders

At Uponor, the compliance is of utmost priority. Our long-term success is built on making business in a fair and ethical way. For this purpose, active engagement and exchanging information in a transparent manner with all our stakeholders is vitally important – not only from the perspective of developing the business activities but also for contributing to sustainable societies.

Flexible and reliable Infra Culvert saves time, money and the environment

The municipality of Sollentuna near Stockholm, Sweden became convinced of the merits of our unique, prefabricated Infra Culvert solution when a trial installation of 50 metres was carried out in an urban environment. The project had started with a more traditional approach: the installation work on the sheet-piled cofferdam was expensive, slow and disruptive for local residents. Sheet pile installation generated a lot of noise and the ground had to be dug up several times.

A safe path with snow-melt installation

A snow-melt installation on top of a 300-metre pedestrian bridge, suspended over a busy U.S. interstate highway and railroad tracks, became the first large-scale use of Uponor PP-RCT in North America. The bridge provides a safe pathway to thousands daily and combines the two sides of Utah’s largest public university in Orem.
