The water regulation in EU must be more ambitious according to Carsten Bjerg. He therefore emphasized on the necessity of EU considering water as a scarce resource and thereby organizes initiatives which can help secure water supply in the future.
- I told the commissioner that Grundfos wants a special focus on water efficiency, because we believe that a more ambitious EU-regulation can help promote the usage of innovative technology solutions regarding water.
After the meeting with Carsten Bjerg, the Environmental Commissioner of EU, Janez Potocnik, said:
- Protecting our water resources is a key to sustainable development. Grundfos demonstrates that new solutions are a crucial part of the answer.
Besides talking about the water regulation in EU, time was also found to tell the Environmental Commissioner about Grundfos’ approach to Rio+20, where sustainable development is on the agenda. According to Carsten Bjerg the message is clear:
- We want to tell the politicians that we already have the technologies needed to solve many of the water challenges that the world will be faced with. But it will take a stricter legislation and a harder regulation.
