Do the wave for goal 6 & 13
At Grundfos, we truly believe that it is important to create attention to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Help us get attention to the most important goals in history by doing the wave every time goal 6 and goal 13 is scored in the Men's EHF EURO 2020.
You can share your wave on Facebook or Instagram by using the hashtag #goal6and13
Grundfos supports the Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals need all the attention they can get – especially the clean water and climate action goals, which we believe are the most important goals in history.
We support goal 6 and goal 13 in particular because we believe that we can actually make a difference in these two areas. With our energy-efficient pump solutions and our extensive experience with water, we can contribute to the global effort to provide all human beings with access to clean water and sanitation.
Clean water and sanitation
Goal 6 focuses on providing universal access to clean water and sanitation. Lacking access to clean drinking water – which an estimated 844 million people currently do – is rarely due to an actual water shortage, but rather a question of poor financing or bad infrastructure. A lack of clean water and sanitation not only has a negative impact on food safety and hygiene, it also affects job and education opportunities.
Goal 13 focuses on stopping climate change and mitigating its harmful effects. The scientific community and the 195 signatories to the Paris agreement agree that climate change will cause water levels to rise and create extreme or unstable weather conditions if we do not immediately begin to address this important issue.
Bringing clean water to 650 children
In all 65 matches at the 2020 EHF European Men’s Handball Championship, Grundfos will award the best player with the Grundfos Player of the Match award. Each award comes with a donation of clean water to ten children in Ethiopia, changing their lives forever. Head on over to World Vision to learn more about the project and make your own donation.
