AVK Sustainability Report

Sustainable development has always been part of our DNA.


Our contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The UN's 17 SDGs are the framework for the global sustainable development efforts until 2030. The goals recognise that social, economic, and environmental development are closely interlinked, and that achieving sustainable development outcomes requires a concerted global effort. SDGs 6, 9 and 17 are particularly relevant to our business model, but we also work with other goals either at a strategic level or through decentralised activities.


Our product portfolio in the business unit AVK Water is a direct extension of UN SDG 6 which aims to  ensure that everyone has access to clean drinking water and sanitation and that this is managed sustainably. 

Our valve solutions help ensure clean drinking water in well-established water supply systems by providing reliable, long-lasting, and dependable water management and helping to reduce water waste and energy consumption. AVK products and solutions are applied to various processes that aim to ensure responsible wastewater handling and to avoid risks to the environment and health. 


UN SDG 9 is about developing reliable infrastructure, promoting sustainable industries, and investing in scientific research and innovation. All three business units of AVK contribute to this goal as we design and manufacture innovative products, some of which are part of recycling initiatives and processes for energy, water, and infrastructure solutions.


The sustainable transition is to be considered one of the very biggest change management projects that public and private companies are facing. Therefore, we consider SDG 17 to be crucial for the success of the other sustainability goals. At AVK, we want to be part of creating a sustainable water and energy supply and build a community where circular economy plays a greater role. Collaboration across local, national, and international organisations, authorities, industries, and professions is necessary, and this is what we do through partnerships.

What if, is no longer a relevant question….

It is possible to turn wastewater into renewable energy.
