Sustainability as a Design Focus

GROHE ‘s strong commitment towards Sustainability is such that it’s integral to our brand as a core brand value – the other core values being Quality, Technology and Design. We aim to become the first leading sanitary-ware manufacturer to achieve CO2-neutral production by the end of 2020. And we recognize and support important water conservation projects through initiatives such as the World Architecture Festival’s (WAF) Water Research Prize. The brand welcomes planners, architects and designers to fully embrace sustainable architecture to positively shape the future for generations to come.

Watch GROHE’s interviews with eight of the world’s leading architects at WAF 2019 in Amsterdam, and learn how water-sustainability and other environmental concerns have become important aspects of their work.

It’s become something rather urgent, rather than something on a to-do list
