CARBON-NEUTRAL PRODUCTION OF VITRIFIED CLAY PIPES
Climate protection is one of the greatest challenges of our time. To safeguard our future we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, and make more efficient use of renewable energy sources.
Many towns and cities are aware of their share of responsibility for this issue and are leading the way by adopting green public procurement strategies. As a supplier of wastewater systems, we have also committed ourselves to an environmentally friendly product portfolio.
CARBON-NEUTRAL VITRIFIED CLAY PIPES FROM NATURAL RAW MATERIALS
As a manufacturer of wastewater pipe systems made of vitrified clay, we stand for products made of 100% natural raw materials, and have been dedicated to effective environmental protection and sustainability for many years now. Our carbon-neutral vitrified clay pipes are manufactured with state-of-the-art fast-firing technology in one of the most modern production facilities for vitrified clay products worldwide, for example. The successful Cradle to Cradle® certification of our vitrified clay pipe systems motivates us to devote more to climate and environmental protection.
REDUCING THE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Our CO2 footprint, also known as our carbon footprint, describes the amount of CO2 emissions generated by an activity within a defined period of time. By consistently lowering CO2 emissions in our production processes, we have been able to effectively reduce our own carbon footprint. In addition to the CO2 footprint itself, experts also take into account the emissions generated for transporting the pipes to the construction site.
Our environment-friendly pipes live up to their description: they are carbon-neutral from the mining of the raw materials right up to construction site delivery. To achieve this quality, all the calculated emissions are offset by tested and registered climate protection projects based on internationally recognised standards and guidelines.
SUSTAINABILITY FOR YOUR VISION OF THE FUTURE
We have the know-how to prevent, reduce and offset CO2 emissions with effective strategies and actions. When it comes to protecting our climate, every single step in the right direction counts.
With our carbon-neutral vitrified clay pipes, we are already making a significant contribution to effective climate and environmental protection. In addition, we actively support network operators in their quest for better environmental performance and offer real "green" alternatives for future-proof and environmentally-aware material procurement. We want to shape the future together with our customers – and make it sustainable and worth living in.
