November 10, 2017 | By HPAC Magazine
Fortune magazine has included GROHE, part of LIXIL, in this year’s Change the World ranking. The list includes 50 international companies with business strategies that have a positive impact on society. Fortune and its partners evaluated the social benefit, economic viability and degree of innovation of different companies.
Fortune commended GROHE’s commitment to saving water and energy, as well as avoiding waste. Fortune also praised the recycling of 99 per cent of the water used to manufacture GROHE kitchen and bathroom faucets. Named in Fortune’s decision statement is GROHE Blue, the kitchen faucet system that reduces CO2 emissions by 60 per cent as compared to bottled mineral water.
Earlier this year, the company won the CSR Award of the German Federal Government for particularly sustainable business.
