Corporate Social Responsibility
We are committed to being a responsible company in every aspect of our operations and we aim for excellence in environmental management. We adopt sustainable practices in our businesses products and services. Analysis has shown that the plastic pipe systems we produce are more environmentally-friendly than pipes made from other materials but we still strive to do better. Environmental aspects are considered when we develop business processes and services and our environmental programme defines specific KPIs for monitoring CO2 emissions, non-recycled waste and water consumption. We also have initiatives aimed at sharing best practice and training as well as raising environmental awareness among our employees.

Aliaxis has worked with the Certified Emissions Measurement and Reduction Scheme (CEMARS) for a number of years as part of our commitment to reducing the environmental impact of our activities. In 2016, we were extremely proud to be among a small group of businesses who were awarded the CEMARS Gold Certificate for achieving 6 consecutive years of carbon emissions reductions.
In 2016, the Aliaxis Code of Conduct was launched and shared with all employees.

This training is supporting us in consistently delivering against our high standards of compliance in a number of areas:
