Van Leeuwen
Sustainability strategy

Sustainability strategy

We developed our 2022-2025 sustainability strategy in 2021. The question of how Van Leeuwen can create value in sustainable ways, now and in the future, is the key focus of this strategy. The strategy focuses on four themes: Climate Action, People, Growth, and Partners & Suppliers. We make our sustainability objectives measurable as much as possible; we consider the entire value chain in this respect.

In line with the UN Agenda

The aforementioned themes from our sustainability strategy are in line with the goals of the UN Agenda 2030. We selected seven (of the seventeen) UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). We are working on these seven goals first. They are as follows: Good Health and Well-being, Gender Equality, Affordable and Clean Energy, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action and Partnerships with relevant parties to work on/achieve these goals.

The longer term

We will of course continue to devote efforts to a healthy future for new generations after 2025. We have developed a roadmap for the longer term. This way we steadily work toward the next milestone. Right now, our key focus is on CO2 reduction. In 2024, our goal is to embed sustainability in our business operations. In 2025, we aim to join the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This is a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute and the World Wide Fund for Nature. Since 2015, more than 1,000 companies have joined this initiative to enable them to set scientifically supported climate targets.

Our top priority for the coming years is to work toward carbon-neutral operations with the aim of being the greenest pipe and tube distributor in the world before 2030.
