Rehau reveals its sustainability strategy in third annual report

Rehau has launched its third annual Sustainability report to introduce customers to its new ‘Fit for the Future’ strategy, which outlines how the business will achieve the ambitious goals it is setting to become more sustainable by 2020.

Available for the first time in a digital-only format, the Sustainability report is an interesting, easy-to-read overview of Rehau’s vision and values, as well as its entrepreneurial activities, ground-breaking pilot projects and resource-friendly technologies under development.

In the Sustainability report, Rehau states it will work towards saving 30% of its electricity consumption by 2020, commits to reducing its water consumption by 40% by 2020 and plans to continue reducing its carbon emissions (already down 26.5%).

The report also details some of the innovative ways that Rehau is developing its products, including new polymer formulations and new high-quality, sustainable composite materials which could replace conventional materials such as glass and concrete in the future.
