Geberit, well known for its water-saving plumsbing and sanitary technology, has been recognised for its overall commitment to Sustainability at the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland on 27th January 2010.
The Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World is an annual project initiated by Corporate Knights, the magazine for clean capitalism. In 2010, Corporate Knights collaborated with three strategic partners to identify the Corporate Knights Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World. The aim is to highlight the global corporations which have been most proactive in managing environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues over the past year.
The Top 10 most sustainable companies included General Electric, Pacific Gas and Electric, TNT NV, Hennes & Mauritz, Nokia, Siemens, Unilever, Vodafone and Smiths Group. Geberit is the only plumbing and sanitary manufacturer to make the list.
Geberit being named amongst the Top 10 of the World’s Top 100 Sustainable Companies is a huge honour and further supports and validates their continuing commitment to being environmentally responsible in everything they do.
In harsh economic times, questions are often asked of companies as to whether sustainability and the related efforts are becoming less important and worthwhile.
At Geberit the opposite view is taken: Sustainability is part of the Geberit culture – whether there is a crisis or not, people have to think about sustainability today and act accordingly.
On this note, their new Sustainability Report 2010 clearly shows what efforts Geberit has undertaken in the area of sustainability over the past years, what results have been achieved and how high the standards have been set for the years ahead.
With the Sustainability Report 2010, Geberit has again been awarded transparency grade A – the highest possible assessment under the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
