Ambitious Targets

“Our new sustainability agenda, launched in 2022, has given us a new framework with ambitious targets to aim for. The new sustainability agenda is based on where we can make a difference. We are making a commitment to our customers, owners, partners, employees, and society—a promise that we will do our very best to increase our positive impacts, to reduce our environmental footprint, and ensure full transparency on both. We continuously develop our ESG reporting to ensure transparency towards all our stakeholders and to make our progress visible. I’m very proud of our team effort across the organization which is now reflected in our improved EcoVadis score”, says Thomas Fuhr, Chief Technology Officer at Uponor Corporation.

Uponor’s sustainability agenda aims to maximize the company's positive impact on customers, employees, and society, while minimizing its environmental footprint. Finalized in 2022, the agenda was created together with customers, "Uponorians," and other key stakeholders. In interviews with stakeholders, the same three topics kept surfacing: climate action, circularity, and transparency. Uponor address these three topics in its new sustainability agenda, which includes concrete, measurable targets.
