Targets for sustainable buildings

Sustainable buildings – target 2009-2015

Grundfos has set targets and defined a building code, which is a classification system showing the sustainability level of our buildings ranging from class 1-3, where class 1 buildings are those with low energy and water consumption or can achieve LEED Gold level awards or a higher building performance standard.

Targets

  • Define the 'Building code' for Grundfos Buildings and set specific improvements target for all Grundfos sites - year 2009.
  • Define the 'Building code' for Grundfos Buildings and set specific improvements target for all Grundfos sites - year 2009.
  • From 2010 building code class 1 will be considered as the target to strive for when constructing new Grundfos buildings.
  • Renewable energy supply is chosen where the payback time is less than 5 years.
  • By year 2015 the consumption of fossil based energy is reduced with 30% in all existing buildings (compared to year 2008). This can be achieved via reduction in energy consumption or via renewable energy supply.
  • No Domestic Water is being used for irrigation from 2012.
  • By year 2015 the reuse of grey wastewater and rainwater harvesting accounts for more than 30% of the water consumption in all existing Grundfos buildings (compared to year 2008).
