Grohe has published its second sustainability report, detailing the economic, environmental and social impact of its business operations for the 2015/2016 period, which shows that the company’s sustainability objectives are “above target”.

According to the report, Grohe almost doubled the target of reducing its water abstraction by just under 9% in 2016 compared with 2013, and the company noted it has also increased its energy efficiency to more than 14% when its target was 9%.

Grohe said it has also reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by almost a quarter, and added that it is “pursuing the ambitious goal” of increasing its energy efficiency by 20% by 2020, as well as reducing its carbon footprint by 20%.

“At Grohe, we are responsible for a future worth living,” said executive operations director Thomas Fuhr, who is responsible for sustainability at board level. “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,” he added. “The wellbeing of future generations can best be secured if sustainability also pays off economically.”
