Vegtech Netafim + Orbia: Advancing Life Around the World

We've officially added a new name to our logo – our parent company, Orbia. This addition is a big deal to us because it proudly tells the world that Vegtech Netafim and this global giant share the same values and drive for creating a better world. 

Now, we want to tell you about Orbia: their vision, purpose, benefit to our clients, and how we at Vegtech Netafim contribute to their vision of solving global challenges and advancing life around the world.

Orbia's Scale and Operations: Working Together to Create Change

Orbia is a purpose-led company passionate about solving some of the world's most complex challenges by bringing together the strengths of its business groups. They’re working towards expanding access to health and wellness, reinventing the future of cities and homes, ensuring food and water security, connecting communities to data infrastructure, and accelerating a sustainable, circular economy with basic and advanced materials and solutions.

With commercial activities in more than 110 countries and operations in over 50 countries, Orbia is a massive company with global reach. They are one of the most cost-efficient PVC producers in the world and the fifth-largest producer of PVC resin worldwide. They also produce plastic pipes and fittings and are a leading producer of conduits for data and pressure pipes in the USA. And most impressively, all of Orbia’s plastic production is done with sustainability of the circular economy in mind.  Most importantly to us, Orbia, via Netafim, is a global leader in precision irrigation, agricultural and greenhouse projects, services, and digital farming. It’s a huge honour to be trusted by them for our knowledge and implementation expertise in this crucial area.

Orbia's Impact on the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Orbia is a community of companies working together to tackle the world's most pressing challenges. By pledging support for the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), Orbia has aligned with eight SDGs in which they can make the most significant impact. These include food and water scarcity, health and well-being, as well as climate resilience and decarbonisation.

We at Vegtech Netafim are committed to contributing to these UN SDGs. As greenhouse specialists, we use the latest technology, insights, and engineering expertise to build custom greenhouses for our clients' needs.  But for every project, our greater purpose is always the same - contributing to food and water security in Africa. Our precision irrigation (powered by Netafim) and digital farming expertise provide sustainable and efficient solutions to help farmers minimise risk and maximise their yield. Ultimately, helping them achieve growing success using fewer natural resources.
