A plastic and clay pipe manufacturer has stepped up its commitment to achieving more sustainable operations by signing a contract for its energy supply with Ørsted.

Wavin, which produces plumbing and drainage systems in the UK, has appointed the supplier to supply natural gas and 100% renewable electricity to its four sites from April 2019.

The renewable electricity will be generated at the company’s 11 operational UK wind farms and help the pipe producer reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 13.7 tonnes a year.

Philip Swancott, Category Manager for Services at Wavin, said: “For Wavin, sustainability has become a driver for value creation.

“Ultimately, we want to deliver products that meet our own sustainability demands and those of our customer, the government and society.”
