Our approach

We want to lead the construction industry towards net zero

Our sustainability agenda supports our strategy implementation. One of the cornerstones of our Group strategy is our aim to lead the construction industry towards net zero.

We want to maximize our positive environmental impact…

Through our offering of products and solutions, we are a sustainability enabler. We develop integrated solutions and initiatives with the best possible environmental footprint to support our customers in their sustainability transition. Through our People First initiative, we develop Uponor to be a great place to work and, through our collaboration within the industry, we bring value to the societies where our products are used.

…while minimizing our carbon footprint

Committed to set SBTi Net-zero targets, we drive a rapid transformation towards a sustainable value chain.

Strong governance to ensure our ESG ambitions are reached

Uponor’s governance promotes responsible and sustainable ways of doing business throughout our value chain. The Executive Committee and the Board of Directors together continue to oversee the sustainability agenda. The Executive Committee approves any updates to the sustainability agenda and targets. A sustainability leadership team was established to engage all relevant stakeholders in leading and executing sustainability topics. This team is responsible for developing our sustainability agenda and target setting, common development projects, as well as function-level annual planning and budgeting. The Group steers and coordinates sustainability work, while the divisions are responsible for executing different actions.

Our sustainability agenda contributes to key UN SDGs

In 2022, we have identified seven of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) where we can make a difference: gender equality; clean water and sanitation; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure; sustainable cities and communities; responsible consumption and production; as well as climate action. We feel that we can truly contribute to these seven SDGs through our offering of sustainable products and initiatives.
