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.
