Grundfos Pumps walks the talk for sustainable business practices

Published:  02 July, 2018

Grundfos Pumps

At Grundfos Pumps, sustainability is not a department or a report, rather it is a mindset as well as an important premise for good working practice. As a global leader in advanced pump solutions, we constantly push the boundaries of possibility in energy efficiency and water conservation to help us to reach our goals of bringing value to the world, our clients, our business and our employees.

We are always looking for ways where we can help to make a practical and positive impact on the environment. So, with this ambition, coupled with the recent focus on the long-lasting damage that plastic bottles are having on the environment, urgent action was needed. An especially sobering thought is that if global consumption of this type of packaging keeps rising, there could actually be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.

The decision was therefore made to stop the use and availability of any single use plastic bottles and cups. Today, staff at the Grundfos Pumps UK HQ, have been issued with their own reusable drinks containers and all plastic cups have been replaced. Turning back the tide on plastic is a major undertaking, but every decision to ban it, is another step along this journey and we at Grundfos are proud to be part of the vanguard taking positive steps to halt this plastic tidal wave.
