|MEP Awards 2014 A word from the sponsors
This award is particularly meaningful for TEPPFA because of our involvement in environmentally friendly initiatives.Recycling, sustainability and the promotion of a circular economy are very high on TEPPFA’s agenda.
Also as a committed supporter of this year’s green week on circular economy TEPPFA is striving to raise awareness of the European environmental agenda and shares the goal of improving and protecting our environment.
The European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA) is the trade association representing manufacturers and national associations of plastic pipe systems in Europe. We are actively involved in the promotion and acceptance of plastic pipe systems for all applications. We want to raise awareness of the value that plastic pipe systems offer for a sustainable future.
This website provides factual and easily accessible information about plastic pipe systems, their value and use.
For more general information, please click on TEPPFA Plastic Pipes. There you will find an overview which we have developed together with PlasticsEurope.
