Grundfos focus on the climate challenge

Grundfos’ 2009 Sustainability Report, which was published recently, advises on the results achieved in 2009 with regard to sustainability and responsibility and also underlines the company’s efforts to fight the major global challenges.

The report includes the following:

A statement about the Grundfos White Paper on climate – ”Sustainability first – Our perspectives on the Climate Challenge”, which underlines our attitude and commitments as to how Grundfos can make a difference in relation to climate change.

Development of a Footprint strategy, which sets an ambitious target for Grundfos to never emit more CO₂ than we did in 2008.

A 10 per cent reduction of our CO₂ emissions, which is a satisfactory result seen in the light of the falling turnover. The objective, however, is to achieve even better results in the future.

ALPHA2 pump number 1,000,000 was manufactured in 2009. In addition, Grundfos A-labelled pumps sold during the 2005-2009 period have achieved annual energy savings of 750 million kWh – which corresponds to 359,000 tons CO₂.

Being a responsible company, Grundfos attaches great emphasis on creating a workplace with room for employees with a reduced capacity. In 2009, the Group target stipulated that 3 per cent of Grundfos employees should be people with a reduced capacity for work, which was surpassed by a 4 per cent result.

The 2009 Sustainability Report gives a comprehensive view of our CSR activities and results, and the report is therefore relevant for a wide range of our stakeholders.
