sustainability

we rather call it sustainable entrepreneurship

sustainability for all stakeholders

At Aalberts, we are no-nonsense, straight-talking, proudly technical people, who engineer mission-critical technologies for ground-breaking industries and everyday life. So it should be no surprise that sustainability has been a concern of ours since 1975 because, well, it’s just common sense.

01
sustainable entrepreneurship

3 megatrends are shaping our future

From rising sea levels to natural resource depletion, everywhere we look there seems to be an environmental challenge. So, from our position as engineers, inventors and innovators, what’s our take? We identify three equally ground-breaking megatrends prompting structural shifts in our industries where our mission-critical technologies can help.
rapid urbanisation
climate change and resource scarcity
the Internet of Things
rapid urbanisation
Cities are getting bigger and our aging population demands more and more services and comfort. Our technologies and products can help cities become healthier and more sustainable. It’s a real opportunity, because managed properly, cities can be eco-friendly and comfortable places to live and work. 
climate change and resource scarcity
The rising demand for energy and raw materials continues to strain the finite resources of the planet. The world needs solutions that improve energy efficiency, lower waste and make materials more lightweight and durable. Our breakthrough innovations can push real progress.
the Internet of Things
As sensors, semiconductors and connectivity become more capable and cost efficient, the collection and analysis of data is set to explode. Smart homes, autonomous cars and connected industries are all areas that we provide technologies for and will be important drivers of positive change.

sustainable impact we enable a clean, smart and responsible world

sustainable entrepreneurship shared value for all our stakeholders

our recognition recognised for the progress we make in various benchmarks

Given our lean and effective structure we only actively participate in the most leading sustainability ratings and benchmarks that are most useful for us and our stakeholders. We rather focus on performance improvement and managing our human, environmental and financial impact. However, the benchmarks help us assessing the topics that are most important to our stakeholders and prioritising our efforts. As you cannot manage what you do not measure, we set KPIs and measure and disclose data accordingly.

We focus on progress in everything we do. We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence.
Sustainalytics
The approach of Sustainalytics is in line with Aalberts' view on sustainable entrepreneurship: we are recognised by Sustainalytics for our no-nonsense approach and our reliable track record.
CDP
The Carbon Disclosure Project helps us measuring and understanding our environmental impact and managing our risks and opportunities on climate change.
DJSI
The Dow Jones Sustainability Index’ approach is data driven and has a focus on transparency. It helps us to see what is of importance for our stakeholders and prioritise our efforts to improve and be transparent on certain topics.
FTSE4GOOD
The recognition we most value is that ethical investors know how to find us better. The index series are designed to identify companies that demonstrate strong ESG practices measured against globally recognised standards.

committed to real progress

case study
separating air and dirt particles from water in heating systems
We play an essential role in the continuing strong demand for efficient heating systems, engineering mission-critical components for HVAC systems and combining established principles with new technologies.
hydrogen: from the lab to the home
As a sustainable energy source, there is growing interest in using hydrogen to heat homes in place of natural gas. To help test the feasibility of such a switch, Aalberts hydronic flow control and Aalberts integrated piping systems are participating in a ground-breaking three-month pilot study in the Dutch city of Groningen.
