Grohe has said that its production processes are to become completely CO2-neutral by 2020, with its CEO Thomas Fuhr being honoured by the German Environmental Management Association – BAUM – with the 2019 Environmental and Sustainability Award for large enterprises.

Fuhr has said that by 2020, the “entire manufacturing process of Grohe’s five production plants worldwide will be completely CO2-neutral”. Grohe said that under Fuhr’s leadership, it has become “one of the most sustainable brands in the sanitary industry”.

“I am delighted to receive this award, which I would like to accept on behalf of all of my Grohe colleagues,” Fuhr said. “My mission and that of Grohe is to develop intelligent technologies with water- and energy-saving qualities, without having to sacrifice when it comes to the joys that water brings.

“Every single drop counts. Our passion for saving water is the reason we have developed our expertise in conserving other resources, which is why we attach great importance to the aspects of energy efficiency, reducing CO2 and avoiding waste along our entire value chain.”
