Sustainability at REHAU

97,000 tonnes of CO2 saved 
per year

Recycling

As a manufacturer, REHAU is conscious of the impact their actions have on people and the environment. The use of recycled materials is one of REHAU’s strategic objectives and we are committed in supporting that objective by leading change in attitudes and accessibility of recycling.

By making our own processes more efficient and creating new opportunities for recycling, our aim is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to make the choice of recycled products.

In 2014, PVCR was welcomed into the REHAU group and has since benefited from significant investment in its recycling equipment. This has enabled the processing of over 13,000 tonnes of postconsumer windows and doors per year.
