AHEAD OF THE GAME

Identity - - SUSTAINABILITY -

Lead­ing san­i­tary fit­tings provider Grohe has an­nounced that it is ex­ceed­ing its sus­tain­abil­ity ob­jec­tives.

The Ger­man com­pany has pub­lished its sec­ond sus­tain­abil­ity re­port, cov­er­ing busi­ness op­er­a­tions for 2015/16.

It has also re­vealed that for 2016 it al­most ex­ceeded by dou­ble a tar­get of re­duc­ing its wa­ter ab­strac­tion by nine per cent com­pared to 2013.

The firm was also able to in­crease its en­ergy ef­fi­ciency to more than 14 per cent in the same pe­riod of time, the tar­get be­ing al­most 9%.

Grohe fur­ther re­duced its green­house gas emis­sions by al­most a quar­ter, the tar­get also be­ing just un­der 9%. And it is also pur­su­ing a goal of in­creas­ing en­ergy ef­fi­ciency by 20% by 2020 and re­duc­ing its car­bon foot­print by 20%.

Thomas Fuhr, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Op­er­a­tions at Grohe, said: “We are firmly con­vinced that sus­tain­abil­ity and ef­fi­ciency are not mu­tu­ally ex­clu­sive. On the con­trary, an or­gan­i­sa­tion’s fu­ture vi­a­bil­ity and eco­nomic suc­cess largely de­pend on its sus­tain­abil­ity. The well-be­ing of fu­ture gen­er­a­tions can best be se­cured if sus­tain­abil­ity also pays off eco­nom­i­cally.”
