Sustainability Is Our Responsibility To The Environment And To Our Customers.
Water is the single most important element in the world and a vital source of life. Less than 1 percent of the Earth’s freshwater supply is fit for human consumption, and much of that is being compromised by overutilization, contamination, and climatic influences.
At MECO, everything we do reflects our sense of responsibility to the industries, communities, and people we serve. Purifying water is energy intensive. Our vapor compression machines cut energy consumption by 70 percent over conventional multiple-effect distillers. We strive to ensure that our water purification solutions are clean and responsive to environmental priorities. When we purify water, we recover as much of our input as possible, minimizing discharge and reducing the water footprint. We understand that there is only one Earth. We are aligned with our customers in our commitment to sustainability.
As part of the Grundfos Group, MECO considers sustainability a fundamental aspect of our identity and we stand firmly behind the Group’s ambition to help solve the world’s water challenges and improve the quality of life for people. The Grundfos Group is the first organization in the water solutions sector to receive full validation of its net-zero science-based targets from the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The organization also validated its 2030 science-based targets, which will serve as a significant milestone in its efforts to achieve a net-zero future.
Grundfos’ science-based targets are as follows:
Overall Net-Zero Target
Reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) across the value chain by 2050
Reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 scopes GHG emissions by 50% by 2030
Reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions by 25% within the same timeframe
Reduce absolute scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3 GHG emissions by 90% by 2050
