Grundfos is at the top
Grundfos’ main production company in Denmark has won an award for good environmental management from EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme), the official EU instrument that acknowledges organisations that have improved their environmental performance on a continuous basis.
The award was presented for their achievements which included reducing the amount of waste produced by over a third in 10 years and the encouragement they give to all their staff to be part of the process through an active staff suggestion scheme. The fact that they are constantly seeking new energy efficient methods and are currently looking at the feasibility of diverting excess energy into cooling energy that can be used within the production process also worked in their favour. This is the first time a Northern European company has ever won this award and comes hot on the heels of Grundfos Pumps in the UK receiving a Green Apple award at The House of Commons for the third successive year.
