SUSTAINABLY INTELLIGENT SOLUTIONS
As the leading provider of intelligent pumping technology, Grundfos is committed to addressing the global water and climate challenges.
FROM WATER SCARCITY to INFINITELY RENEWABLE RESOURCES
Grundfos thinks ahead to develop advanced products and services that are sustainable and help our customers and communities reduce environmental impact.
As a global company, we have aligned our corporate strategy with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Grundfos is setting new standards in the industry through new technology and system design demonstrating our ability to develop efficient and cost-effective solutions.
Our focus areas are:
- Water and sanitation
- Energy efficiency
...all which link to their overarching goal of sustainability.
The SQFlex Solar Solution is a perfect example of these pillars - recently implemented in Kaikor, in Kenya. Kenya’s north-western area of Turkana is arid, prohibiting large scale, sustainable farming. Shallow wells provided most of the water for the community, but often dried out. An external Aid Agency donated the SQFlex Solution, which uses solar panels to power the pump that draws water from deep boreholes. A robust and relatively maintenance-free system, it has made a world of difference to the community.
The Abantunga community, 45km north of Durban, has also experienced the value of the SQFlex Solar Solution. With no clean piped water, residents of this community had to rely on a pump powered by electricity - both costly and frequently not in supply. With a new borehole drilled, and water pumped into two 4000L tanks, the Abantunga community now has access to unlimited fresh water.
BE. THINK. INNOVATE.
Driven by our relentless ambition to deliver even better solutions to our customers, Grundfos allocate > 5 % of their annual turnover to the development of new solutions and just in 2017 Grundfos launched 30 new or improved products across various portfolios. We care for people and our planet!
