Social responsibility of GRP

A remarkable contribution to society and social development.

GRP products and production technologies are designed to meet the demands and abilities of present and future generations.

Being an extremely durable material, GRP is used in a variety of socially relevant applications including among others the automotive and aerospace industry, water and wastewater engineering, housing, construction yards, railways, and sports equipment. It can withstand poor weather conditions with minimal suffering and has a long-life expectancy, regardless of wear and tear.

The contribution of GRP pipes to society and social development is also remarkable: They ensure the secure transport and availability of water, play a significant role in agriculture and industry (the biggest users of water), they form leak-tight sewer networks and help manage floods and droughts through water storage and retention tanks as well as customized solutions for wastewater treatment plants. GRP hydropower solutions generate clean and renewable energy for generations to come. When installed by no-dig technologies, they significantly reduce disturbances from noise, dust, and road closures in cities while providing a structural long-term solution. GRP pipes can be equipped with real-time monitoring systems that improve water management and help detect leakages.

Did you know?

Growing population as well as increasingly severe and frequent rainstorms challenge the sewer systems in urban areas. Special retention and overflow structures can help handle the excessive storm- and wastewater loads and the contained suspended solids. Amiblu offers two especially efficient and responsible solutions for this challenge: The Combined Sewer Overflow Chamber and the Amiscreen.

Both structures are made of GRP and can be flexibly integrated into any kind of sewer pipeline system. They contain retention elements for effectively separating suspended solids from the sewage, and an additional storage function. The systems can be custom-tailored to the project requirements, are low-maintenance and withstand high traffic loads with minimum covering.

Thanks to the material’s very long lifetime expectancy, supreme quality, and environmental friendliness, GRP products are solutions for generations.

Environmental responsibility is the ability to keep renewable resource use, pollution, and non-renewable resource depletion at levels that don’t harm the future of our planet. This pillar of development is needed to be given top priority: It’s a prerequisite for both social and economic responsibility.

Economic responsibility is the ability to support a defined level of economic production indefinitely. It is, in other words, the process of allocating and protecting scarce resources, while ensuring positive social and environmental outcomes.

Footprint

Our footprint

We aim to have life cycle assessments for all products by end of 2022 and a carbon-neutral pipe production by 2030. We use the resources we have—our business, our voice, and our network—to fight the climate crisis and inspire people around the globe to value water as we should.
