Some goals are more important
At Grundfos, we feel an obligation to make a difference wherever we can. That’s why we’ll display our long-standing support of UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6 – clean water for all, and Goal 13 – climate action, at the Men’s Handball World Championship, Egypt 2021.
Grundfos supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals need all the attention they can get. Grundfos particularly supports goal 6 and goal 13, because that’s where we feel we can make a difference. Focusing on ensuring clean water for all and combating climate change, these two goals highlight the importance of water to human life.
Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
Goal 6 focuses on providing universal access to clean water and sanitation, which an estimated 785 million people currently do not have. This not only has a negative impact on their food safety and hygiene, it also affects job and education opportunities.
Goal 13: Climate action
Goal 13 focuses on stopping climate change and mitigating its harmful effects. It’s inevitable that climate change will cause water levels to rise and create extreme weather conditions if this important issue is not addressed immediately.

Our water is under pressure
Increasing urbanisation and our modern way of living place a heavy demand on the water supply. On top of this a combination of water contamination, leakages and over-consumption also challenges our access to safe and clean water. With intelligent solutions, we can make a change.
Pumps working behind the scene
The Handball World Championship 2021 will be conducted in four sporting venues in Egypt. The largest of the four stadium is Cairo Stadium with a capacity of up to 17,000 spectators. Therefore it’s essentially important that the pumps within this stadium runs smoothly throughout the entire tournament without faults. In Cairo Stadium, two Grundfos Paco HVAC pumps are set to work reliably behind the scene, securing players and officials with efficient water supply, while also reducing the overall power consumption in the stadium.
