Water is our passion
Today, more than 40% of the world's population is affected by water scarcity and nearly 800 million lack access to safe water.
We are living at a time when our technology and know-how about water can save lives. It is a privilege and a responsibility we are deeply aware of and wish to impart to all of Grundfos employees. We continue to apply our core competency in moving, conserving, cleaning and bringing safe water to where it is needed. In short, to address the global water crisis, one drop at a time.
This powerful employee-initiated programme brought clean water to tens of thousands of people in Vietnam and Kenya in 2017. In this year's instalment, we will be taking off to Honduras and helping local vulnerable communities.
Partnership for water
Partnerships are essential to making a global impact and even more essential when making an impact in unknown or unchartered territory. This is often the case when we bring water to new, remote or rural areas.
The winning combination is smart technology and educated consumers. Through our partners, we can combine our know-how with local knowledge. This helps us to operate in these new regions and guide local communities into the hows of adopting these technologies.
Lifelink solutions treat surface water in communities that do not have access to portable water or water of sufficient quality for domestic purposes. It combines solar-powered pumps, water treatment (AQpure) and intelligent water ATMs (AQtaps).
Our AQtaps serve over 100,000 people in rural and peri-urban communities in Kenya.
