Onduline’s commitment to sustainability
We have always been committed to sustainability. Our roofing experts not only offer innovative solutions to protect people from any weather but also return the favour to the environment with sustainable products and processes.
We pay close attention to our manufacturing process, designed to be low in energy consumption and generate no dangerous waste. We recycle about 60,000 tons of material each year using high-tech recycling processes. All these initiatives enabled us to reach a positive carbon footprint of 4066 g CO2/m2*, calculated by Pure Project, a French company specialized in environmental issues, especially in the fight against deforestation.
* Calculated in 2011, scope Corrugated Bitumen Sheets & Tiles, based on raw material supply, transport and manufacturing – being currently updated
We have always provided asbestos-free and lightweight solutions, easy to be carried and installed, meaning less energy, lighter structures… Not to mention acoustic and thermal comfort for end-users.

- Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
IBU (Institut Bau und Umwelt) / PE International, September 2016
We are the first company who applied for an EPD for our bitumen corrugated product family. We thus created a Product Category Rule for Roofing and Wall Cladding (PCR) that was accepted in July 2012 by German Institute IBU. This PCR will be the basis for all future EPDs for all suppliers.
EPD provide quantified and required data to monitor life circle assessment (LCA) impact.
Recycled content and EPD provide elements for LEED certifications or green standards for sustainable green building operations.
