Molecor (as a company) and its fittings and pipes (as products) are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations with the aim of achieving a sustainable future for all. The SDGs are interlinked and address the global challenges we face every day, such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
Given the nature of the company itself and its products, Molecor's main goal is SDG 6 “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.” The company's activity is developed around two main axes: the development and manufacture of productive, increasingly efficient systems, and the manufacture of PVC pipes and fittings for infrastructure, drainage and building applications, with the aim of building safer, more sustainable hydraulic networks that can supply to everyone. Both its pipes and their fittings are products with a long useful life, ensuring total quality of the water piped for different uses at all times. With these products, Molecor makes water an asset that can be accessed by many impoverished societies. The exclusive technology used in the manufacturing process allows the company to offer a product with unbeatable physical and mechanical properties, which is also more accessible on the market.
In line with SDG 7 “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”, Molecor is firmly committed to responsible energy consumption and usage thanks to its highly energy efficient production process, which does not consume fossil fuels. This is in addition to its recent increase in the percentage of energy used from renewable sources, which contributes to improved sustainability and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
“Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”, as set out in SDG 9, is at the heart of Molecor as a world leader in PVC-O. The company has its own patented technology and continually introduces new, innovative products to the market.
Regarding SDG 11 “Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”, Molecor makes an effective contribution by guaranteeing that pipes and fittings allow the construction of sustainable environments. These are also products 100% recyclable.
Molecor also contributes to SDG 12 “Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns”, by implementing an Integrated Management System for quality and the environment (in accordance with standards in force and other voluntary commitments), by including the circular economy concepts of eco-design and reuse in the company's operability, and by manufacturing products with an exclusive manufacturing system that optimises the use of natural resources while reducing energy consumption.
In terms of SDG 13 “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”, SDG 14 “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development” and SDG 15 “Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”, Molecor makes a significant contribution to the planet's sustainable development through all of its aforementioned impacts. Molecor is a responsible company that's committed to the environment. Proof of this lies in its implementation of Operation Clean Sweep and its contribution to correctly managing waste in the environment.
Lastly, the company is a member of various industry associations and voluntary programmes with the aim of achieving the different SDGs that apply to Molecor as efficiently as possible, which in turn is related to SDG 17 “Partnerships for the goals”.
