Empowering Sustainability in Telecom Through Ambitious Goals

Previously, the two main success factors for a fibre network build were cost and time-to-market. But today, there’s a third non-negotiable: sustainability. However, as much as 98% of a telecom operator’s carbon footprint lies in the value chain and because such a large amount of these emissions are outside their direct control, the industry must come together collaboratively to make meaningful reductions.

Dura-Line is part of Orbia, a company driven by a shared purpose: to advance life around the world. Orbia is committed to limiting its contribution to the worst impacts of climate change in accordance with the Paris Agreement. To accomplish this, Orbia has adopted a set of science based targets.

In Europe, we’ve brought a sustainability focus to every level of our business, from our daily operations, to our products, and our role in shaping industry-wide climate standards and goals throughout the region.

Product Circularity

Our vision is to continue to manufacture products that last while reducing the impact on the environment of their installation and disposal. We’ve collaborated with our customers to develop products that meet their needs and achieve our shared sustainability goals.


MicroDucts and FuturePath® ECO Life Cycle Assessment

We released MicroDucts and FuturePath® ECO, which use up to 100% internal reworked HDPE, and deliver a significant reduction in emissions over regular MicroDuct products, backed by a life cycle assessment (LCA).

KPN Reference Case

Dura-Line’s customer KPN, a leading network operator in The Netherlands, was impressed by the quality of MicroDucts and FuturePath® ECO and agreed that it aligns with their sustainability goals.

Responsible Manufacturing

To reduce our value chain emissions and those of our customers, we’ve partnered with other businesses and organisations to implement responsible manufacturing practices as early in the production process as possible. Broadly speaking, we aim to:

~Maximise the resources we use~

~Reuse what can be reused~

~Recycle everything that can be recycled~



  • Our drum return program incentivises our customers to return empty drums for reuse. In the first half of 2023 over 2,016 drums have been returned and reused, and the number of participating customers grows daily.
  • Regular energy efficiency upgrades resulting in 850+kWh in daily electricity savings – enough to power a mid-sized electric vehicle for over 4,000 kilometers.
  • Regular third-party audits and monitoring of our energy use and carbon emissions.

Carbon Footprint

We’ve set ambitious carbon reduction goals, and we remain committed to accomplishing them. If the EU is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, industries like ours must find ways of working together towards common goals.


For this reason, Dura-Line is actively participating in strategic sustainability policy efforts, such as European-level environmental working groups on topics like post-consumer recycled materials (PCRs), environmental product declarations (EPDs), and life cycle assessments (LCAs).

We are proud that the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) validated Orbia’s near-term targets to reduce Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 47% by 2030 from use-of and end-of-life treatment of sold products by 30% within the same timeframe.

We continually work towards science-based targets to further reduce our carbon footprint and foster sustainability in the telecom industry and beyond.


Globally, Dura-Line has reduced close to a quarter of its CO2 emissions since 2019 baseline. Specifically 17,200 metric tonnes of 81,866 metric tonnes, which is equivalent to 284,403 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. We aim to reach net zero by 2050.
