Sustainability is at the core of our business ambitions and our business principles are based on the responsibility towards the world around us.
Our pump solutions can move water away from places where it presents danger to places where it is useful. Our technological solutions ensure this is possible with energy consumption so low that the carbon emissions are reduced to a minimum. With business areas including Grundfos BioBooster, InFarm and MicroRefinery, we contribute with innovative solutions to the disposal of wastewater, the removel of odour problems at pig farms and the transformation of wastewater sludge into diesel.
Grundfos wants to do its part in ensuring that the population growth, urbanisation and the increasing demand for greater houseing comfort and clean water do not result in the over-exploitation of natural resources. We are focused on defending our position as a leading supplier of sustainable and energy-efficient pump solutions. At the same time we are investing strongly in making Grundfos one of the leading suppliers of innovative clean-tech system solutions within the field of water.

Grundfos was established in 1945 by the late Poul Due Jensen. The company grew rapidly and, when Poul Due Jensen’s son, Niels Due Jensen, took over the position as Group President in 1978, the company was already an important factor on the pump market worldwide. Before his death in 1977, Poul Due Jensen changed the ownership, founding the Poul Due Jensen Foundation which today is the major holder of Grundfos stock.
