Viega: Installing Lifelines For The Buildings Of Tomorrow

Working for future generations and the buildings of tomorrow.

The world is facing an unprecedented climate crisis. One in three people still do not have access to safe drinking water, and global warming could increase this statistic further. The world needs ambition, innovation and evolution through technological advancements, and Viega is committed to providing real solutions.

Viega is among the leading global providers of drinking water and heating piping systems, and with that recognition comes the understanding that the team must deliver on high expectations. Far beyond just pipes and fittings, the team is also responsible for the development of complex piping systems to optimise and increase everyone’s quality of life through sustainable solutions. 

The team is reinforcing the infrastructure that will lay the foundations for the buildings of the future, and the results are already proving their commitment to the fight against climate change.

“We ensure safety in buildings, comfort in homes, drinking water hygiene and energy efficiency,” explained Anna Viegener, Chairwoman of the Board, Viega Holding GmbH & Co. KG. “This is what really drives us every day.”

Energy demands globally are continuously increasing as the world becomes better connected and populations grow. By the midpoint of the 21st century, two thirds of the world’s population will live in cities, and Viega has been laying the groundwork now to ensure energy emissions are optimised to prepare for tomorrow. Energy use in buildings is responsible for almost 20 percent of global greenhouse gase emissions. Industry leaders such as Viega are working hard to reduce this statistic. 

The provision of hygienically safe drinking water plays a major role in reducing energy consumption in buildings. But the challenge is great, because in order to provide healthy drinking water, hot water systems are continuously heated to 60° C (140° F). In addition, a lot of water is sent through the pipes to avoid stagnation. This consumes a lot of water and is not resource-efficient. Through digitalisation, the team have been able to successfully develop water management solutions that recognise and regulate irregularities before they become problems, controlling water quality in a sustainable manner.

“As a family business, we are not interested in short term gains”, said Walter Viegener, Chairman of the Board, Viega Holding GmbH & Co. KG. ”We plan for the long term and make sustainable investments in all areas of the company.”

In Viega’s German locations alone, the team have already reduced their energy consumption by 10% in the last five years, cutting the specific CO2 emissions by 30%. In an effort to reduce wastage internally, water is able to be used in the production process up to five times before entering the waste cycle, and it’s these changes that are helping to both make a large impact within the company, and prove that throughout Viega, there is a culture of preservation, optimisation, and betterment for everyone.
