Wilo Group has been awarded a renowned ‘German Sustainability Award’ in the ‘Climate Transformation’ category at Europe’s most prestigious award for ecological and social commitment.
Wilo is a provider of pumps and pump systems for building services, water management and industry, using smart solutions that bring together people, products and services and has had a UK base for the last 36 years.
Held on 4 December, The German Sustainability Awards aims to recognise pioneers and innovators who are striving to make a real change in relation to sustainability something that Wilo that has been championing in the UK for a long time, even recently holding a successful webinar on the impact of urbanisation in the UK.
Stefan Schulze-Hausmann, founder of the awards comments: “While global challenges such as climate change and species extinction have intensified over the last few years, so too has our knowledge on how to compensate with a sustainable economy. Within the awards, we are looking for companies that use this knowledge boldly and effectively to accelerate the use of greater sustainability.”
With a target of providing one-hundred million people with access to drinking water by 2025, Wilo is heavily incorporating sustainability into its approach; the company’s pumps help to provide people around the world with water in an intelligent, efficient and climate-friendly manner.
Pumps across the world use about ten percent of the global energy consumption and around 90% of today’s installed pumps are outdated and inefficient. Wilo’s products, on the other hand, are modern and high efficiency. Globally, the replacement of obsolete technology with the latest generation of Wilo pumps could save up to 246 Terawatt hours – the equivalent of 80 carbon power stations.
Lee Tebbatt, Managing Director of Wilo UK, comments: “We are so proud that a manufacturing company has been recognised as a climate protection pioneer in these prestigious awards. We are continuously dedicated to developing smart products to improve efficiency across the board to provide sustainable solutions for our customers. Being honoured with this award just shows that our hard work is paying off.”
Earlier this year, Wilo Group, was also named as one of the top 50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders in a global sustainability and climate protection initiative.
