At Grundfos, Sustainability is the core of our business

To us, sustainability is a mind-set, a way to do business. We push the boundaries of possibility in energy efficiency and water conservation. It is about bringing value to the world, to our clients, to our business, and to our employees in the most sustainable way.

Green at heart

We take responsibility for making a genuine difference in the world, by helping our existing and new customers meet their needs in an ever-more energy and water-efficient manner, through our work with the product life-cycle and by walking the talk when it comes to our own footprint.

Our sustainability stories

From Russia to India, from Argentina to Vietnam. See how our employees gather for good causes to help local communities. 

Water cleanup

Activations to pick up trash occurred around the green areas or water bodies in areas with Grundfos offices. Employees gathered to tackle water pollution in their local communities and concurrently raise awareness in their workplace.

Cape Town challenge

Cape Town residents currently face one of the worst droughts in centuries. In a dire water situation, they are limited to a daily water usage of 50 litres. In conjunction with World Water Day, Grundfos offices shared information on how people could conserve water through their daily activities and the benefits of water conservation.



In this year's instalment of our employee-initiated community programme, our employees are helping to solve water needs of schools and hospitals in Honduras.

Global engagement
