Climate Change - A Business Opportunity
Grundfos strongly believes in enhancing our sustainability profile by offering cutting-edge green solutions. These solutions aim to improve a number of global challenges including climate change, water constraints and demographic changes, while at the same time making profitable and sound business.
We believe that our ability to pioneer and deliver superior environmental solutions is a way of focusing our capabilities in the areas where we can contribute most.
We therefore need to continue our innovation activities and develop the best engineering solutions for the world’s environmental problems. We need to use our imagination, embrace new technologies, search for system solutions and accelerate our environmental agenda. Furthermore, we must set a good example by reducing our own impact on the environment.
2009 saw the launch of the Grundfos Climate White Paper, which was developed by Grundfos Group management. The Climate White Paper is our response to climate challenges and sets the overall direction for future climate initiatives at Grundfos. We have identified five commitments that will anchor our climate efforts worldwide:
1) We will never emit more CO2 than we did in 2008;
2) We will invest in developing new sustainable products and solutions;
3) We will continue to develop as an organisation with a green mindset;
4) We will influence the global climate agenda and position Grundfos as a true global player;
5) We will communicate our progress and provide full transparency.
We will take the initiative now, and utilise our core competences to ensure maximum impact of our efforts, open new markets and capitalise on the need for sustainable solutions.
Grundfos is ready to be a part of the solution.
