We take the next step in thinking water wise
We want to take part in handling the world’s ever rising water issues. In a new publication, Grundfos puts focus to what we have done in the past year to help spare the precious resources.
2014 has in many ways been a challenging year. It has once again been a year where nature demonstrated its power with extreme weather from droughts, tornadoes, flooding and hurricanes, and the challenges are not getting smaller. Over the next fifty years, the world population is estimated to increase by another 40 to 50%. This population growth – combined with industrialisation and urbanisation – will result in an increasing demand for water and will have serious consequences on the environment.
In 2013, we launched our water commitments, which cover water consumption and the quality of the water we discharge. By the year 2025, our aim is to reduce our total water consumption by 50% compared to 2008 levels. From 2013 to 2014, we reduced our water consumption with 6%. Compared to 2008 levels, this means a total reduction of 28%, in spite of the fact that our business has grown by 24% during the same period.
