Sustainable Processes that reduce our environmental impact
Our commitment to a sustainable future guides our approach to environmentally responsible manufacturing. As a result of continual improvement on energy efficiency, IPEX recently exceeded its 2% annual energy reduction goals, saving 3% across molding plants, 4% across extrusion plants, and 10% across fabrication.
Recycling is central to our operations at IPEX. In addition to regrinding our factory scrap directly into new pipe and incorporating post-industrial recycled materials into Enviro-Tite products, we recycle and reuse resources whenever possible, from water and acetone to wood palettes and steel strappings.
Reduced resource use
Minimizing resource use drives our decision making, from installing LED lighting across all facilities, to reducing transportation emissions by ensuring no truck leaves without a full load. We are consistently upgrading all equipment and systems to incorporate more efficient technology.
Sustainability at Every Step
At every stage in the production process, IPEX innovates on recycling, reuse, and conservation. From the use of recycled materials, optimizing our manufacturing processes, distribution policies, and the material advantages of PVC we are helping to build a sustainable future.
