Steel sheet piles can play an active role in protecting and preserving the environment: recycling, re-use, flood protection systems, storm protection systems, beach erosion protection,...

Its production process in facilities that fulfill all the stringent European environmental and health & safety regulations and standards, as well as its reuse and recycling capability, result in a quite low impact on the environment and on human activities compared to other materials.
Although noise and vibrations may be higher during installation (there are some means to reduce, or even to eliminate this nuisance), a sheet pile structure is erected almost always much faster, and at the end leads to less disturbance to the neighbourhood, which is a key selection criteria in urban areas.
