Sustainability

Sustainability is an integral part of Orbia’s commitment to advance life around the world. Quite simply, we aim to give rather than take. On our path to become a purpose-driven, future-fit organization, we’re working with governments, the private sector, and local not-for-profit organizations around the world to help bring about a more livable future. Because together, we can push the boundaries for a better tomorrow.

In 2018, Orbia joined the UN Global Compact, which encourages businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible practices.

Orbia's Sustainable Solutions Report

Orbia’s business groups (Vestolit, Alphagary, Wavin, Netafim, Dura-Line and Koura) provide products and solutions that support multiple industries including construction, infrastructure, agriculture, health, transportation, data communications, energy and petrochemicals. Many of these industries are essential for daily life and one of the ways in which we demonstrate our commitment to global impact is through the direct and indirect contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
