Grundfos: Grundfos partners with the 2030 Water Resources Group

The global water crisis is highlighted as one of the world's biggest issues in
the future. Grundfos joins an international collaboration combatting this
serious issue.

The 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) has just recently accepted a new
member into its ranks. The Danish pump manufacturer, Grundfos, has joined the
private-public-civil society cooperation. Among its members are the World
Economic Forum, the International Finance Corporation, the World Wildlife
Fund, companies such as Nestlé and Coca Cola as well as multilateral agencies
as Swiss and Swedish development cooperations.

"We are very excited to have Grundfos on board. By pioneering new
technologies, they contribute to global sustainability. The private sector is
a major source of innovations and good practices that enhance the efficiency
of water use. Working in partnership with government, civil society and other
stakeholders, the private sector can provide complementary knowledge,
experience, insights and convening power to address issues of water resources
management," says Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, Chair of the 2030 WRG Governing
Council and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nestlé.

Grundfos has a strong tradition of developing water and energy-efficient
solutions, such as solar-driven pumps and efficient water treatment systems.

Water is repeatedly highlighted as one of the most serious issues the world is
facing. For two consecutive years, The World Economic Forum has identified
the water crisis as the number one global risk for the coming years in its
Global Risks Report and it is an area of highest interest at the World
Economic Forum's annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

"2030 WRG addresses one of the most important and urgent issues in today's
world, and now is the time to move from dialogue to accelerating change.
Water is essential for basic survival, food production and business growth.
We are dedicated to working towards a more sustainable future that is equally
beneficial to our employees, business partners and society," says CEO of
Grundfos, Mads Nipper.
In addition to developing water and energy-efficient solutions, Grundfos also
aims at reducing its own total water consumption by 50 percent compared to
2008 levels.
