Supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 6 and 13

This year's European championship is about more than winning a title. As an official sponsor of the Men's European Handball Championship 2018, Grundfos has decided to use the Men's EHF Euro 2018 in Croatia to draw attention to the UN's global sustainable development goals, in particular goal 6 - clean water for all, and goal 13 - climate change.

Goal 6 - Clean water and sanitation
Goal 13 - Climate action

Clean water for all

The UN has defined 17 goals for global sustainable development. As one of the world’s biggest manufacturer of pumping solutions, Grundfos particularly cares about two specific goals: goal 6 & goal 13.

Goal 6 is about ensuring access to clean water and sanitation for all. Often, water scarcity is not about a lack of sufficient water, rather it is a matter of bad economics or poor infrastructure. This impacts negatively on food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world.

  

Combat climate change and its impacts

Goal 13 focuses on climate change, and how people are experiencing the significant impacts of a changing climate, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events.

The project aims to build clean water systems in villages and teach sanitary practices, allowing women to spend more time on education – and less on collecting water from unsafe sources.

  

Mali: Healthy communities

This 4-year programme will improve water sanitation and hygiene by building and rehabilitating water points and toilet blocks. It will also help young men and women set up small businesses in water and sanitation.

  

Kenya: Women energy entrepreneurs
