Grundfos CEO participates in Danish state visit to Germany

As a global leader in advanced pump solutions and water technology, Grundfos is uniquely placed to offer competitive and innovative applications to the German market to help solve water and climate challenges.

This week, CEO Poul Due Jensen joined HM Queen Margrethe of Denmark and HRH Crown Prince Frederik as part of the Danish state visit to Germany.

The focus for the state visit to Berlin is “Together for a Sustainable Future”, and Due Jensen points out that it is more important than ever that industry and governments work together to solve the world’s water and climate crises.

“Germany is among the frontrunners when it comes to the sustainability and climate agenda. This perfectly matches Grundfos ambitions to leave a positive mark on the world. And as we have heard from the current COP26 climate summit, governments and industry must work closer together, and move now. Otherwise, it will be almost impossible to reach the global ambition of net-zero emissions by 2050,” said Due Jensen: “We have worked closely with municipalities and the government to support the green transition in Germany for several years. As we look to the future, high-efficiency pumps and intelligent, digital solutions will be important in reducing carbon emissions.”

He further remarks: “A holistic approach and innovations are vital to reduce carbon emissions on a global scale. At Grundfos we already work with technology that enables energy efficient products and solutions. Digital technologies hold huge potential to further improve offerings. Through digitalisation, water solutions can adapt their performance to user-demand. These solutions use less water and power ultimately reducing carbons emissions.”
