A strong foundation guides us
Grundfos was established in 1945 by founder Poul Due Jensen in Denmark, who believed that there is no limit to what can be achieved together. Today, we continue to believe that the combined talent, passion and effort of all Grundfos employees and our partners hold close to unlimited potential, which is strongly reflected in our purpose and values.
Tackling the water and climate challenges
We can, will, and must play a vital role in solving the world’s water and climate challenges with our solutions. Our purpose is to pioneer solutions to the world's water and climate challenges and improve quality of life for people. Therefore, we have clear, long-term water and climate ambitions to do whatever is in our power to help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular 6 and 13.
Clean water and sanitation: We will halve our own water consumption by 2025. By 2030, we will have contributed to providing safely managed drinking water to 300 million people in need. In addition, through water efficiency and water treatment, we will have saved the consumption of 50 billion m3 of fresh water.
Climate action: We will halve our own CO2 emissions by 2025. By 2030, we aspire towards being 'climate-positive'.
Our employee-driven program, Water2Life, engages colleagues in more than 35 countries with the purpose of bringing clean water to communities in need on every continent. Since 2010, Grundfos employees have raised more than €600,000, providing clean sustainable water systems for over 50,000 people in Kenya, Vietnam and Honduras.

We care for people
Our employees are our most valuable asset, which is also why we have a long history of being socially responsible. We strongly believe in diversity and inclusion, and it is important for us to treat employees equally regardless of personal characteristic or status. We care about the health and mental well-being of our people, and we have committed ourselves to employ people with reduced work capacity.
