All of our products and materials are lightweight, which makes for simpler, more efficient transportation as well as less waste at construction sites.
What’s more, they’reasbestos-free, composed of recycled fibers and use natural pigments for coloration.
We’re proud to have achieved a positive carbon footprint and a much lower volume of CO than other roofing solutions. 2
Additionally, our manufacturing processes boast low energy consumption (just 4 kwh per m2) and no dangerous waste. Our plants are equipped
with high-performance treatment systems for gas effluents and emit no liquid waste in any form. The after-life of our products is just as important.
Through high-tech recycling processes, we’ve been able to achieve high content of post-consumer material (around 50%). In fact, we’re currently
recycling some 200,000 tons of material each year. Every action we implement is carefully considered in terms of environmental responsibility.
For example, our stand at this year’s Batimat Exhibition has been carefully designed to be broken down and reused at other events.
People are the cornerstone of our endeavors and, ultimately, everything we do is to improve their lives.
In addition to all the sustainable initiatives behind our products and processes, Onduline is a company that values its workers. We currently employ
more than 1,600 people across the globe, representing dozens of nationalities, cultures and languages. And the average employee stays with us for
seven years on average, well above the global median for private-sector.
In this noisy area of exaggerated green-intensive communication, it’s important to be able to back up real initiatives with solid facts and reliable
third-party confirmation. Onduline’s achievements are regularly recognized by leading organizations and labels.
For instance, we’ve earned the prestigious VAR 1016 certification for high-impact recycling, which provides elements for LEED certification for
sustainable green building operations. Not to mention the carbon footprint, which we have conducted with Pur Project, well known experts of this field.
Onduline’s carbon footprint : 4066 g CO2/m2.
Our products are least emissive products, comparing to other roofing solutions

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)
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 EPD’s of whatever supplier.
EPD provides quantified and required data to monitor life circle assessment (LCA) impact.
Recycled content and EPD are essential for professionals, especially specifiers: it gives points for LEED or green standards.
