We dare to do things that others do not in order to overcome the complex challenge of moving water in the most intelligent way. To do so, we must first and foremost capitalize on our environment for innovation and long-term thinking.

Being responsible, helpful and caring are part of who we are. This makes us unique as a company and as a workplace. We are in it together, and we can always count on each other. We succeed together.

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 COemissions 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.

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.
