More sustainable than ever

More sustainable than ever

When looking back at Grundfos’ activities and results for 2010, sustainability is one of the keyword. We are especially proud of two results – our CO2 reductions and our employee program Grundfos Brings Water2Life. These results and much more are presented in the sustainability report 2010 Sustainability through partnerships.

Reductions in CO2
At Grundfos we have an ambition of never emitting more CO2 than we did in 2008. It has been a difficult challenge for us to live up to this high ambition in 2010 due to the greatest increase in production in Grundfos’ history. Despite this we managed a two percent reduction in our CO2 emissions, which is a great achievement.

Employee-driven project
Another proud moment was 1 June 2010 - the day our employee programme Grundfos Brings Water2Life was launched. It is a global and employee-driven sustainability programme which combines Grundfos’ products with employee involvement to create access to water in a sustainable way for some of the world’s poorest people.
The support and enthusiasm of employees have been overwhelming, and before the end of 2010 more than 54,000 euro was donated. The Grundfos Group contributes with a similar amount and with this enough money has been donated to finance four solarpowered LIFELINK water systems for small villages in Kenya.
