Grundfos Sustainability Focus Areas :
Sustainable Product Solutions
'Sustainable product solutions’ focuses, among other things, on Grundfos’ ability to invent and sell technologies and solutions helping the end-user to reduce their energy consumption and lower their water consumption. Also, introducing new ways of re-using resources is important, as there is focus on the entire product life cycle including disposal and recycling.
With the focus area 'People competences' we commit ourselves to attract, retain and develop world class people to take on the sustainability agenda. We wish create general awareness on sustainability and make it part of the mindset; e.g. by incorporating
sustainability into existing training programs, and thereby making it a natural part of
our understanding and everything we do.
The focus area ‘Environmental footprint’ has a specific focus on four elements; energy and carbon footprint, water footprint, waste footprint, and chemical footprint. Reducing energy consumption related to our activities and reducing our customers’ energy consumption is one of the most important aspects in the effort to realize our ambition to never emit more CO2 than in we did in 2008, despite the economic growth. Water is essential for basic survival, food production and business growth. Therefore every single drop counts. We have committed to reduce our total water consumption by 50 % of 2008 level by 2025.
As we take care of our people, safety, health and well-being of employees go beyond everything else. We have ambitious goals, and we want to strengthen a mindset of safety first and proactive when it comes to ensuring zero injuries and absence related to injuries.
