Less-Plastic-Initiative

In 2018, GROHE launched its initiative to replace plastic in product packaging with more sustainable alternatives. Until April 2020, approximately 10 million items of product packaging made from plastic could be eliminated; by 2021, this figure is to be significantly increased to up to 35 million. The transition to plastic-free packaging is a process that involves all production sites equally. In addition to identifying the most commonly used plastic packaging, new, more sustainable material alternatives must be researched, tested and then implemented.

START OF THE PROJECT

In 2018

GOAL

Plastic-free packaging by 2021

CURRENT

Research, testing and implementation of more sustainable alternatives

RESULT 2019

Approximately 10 million items of product packaging made from plastic could be eliminated

Procedure

Identification of the most frequently used plastic packaging and its usage

Search for material alternatives

Laboratory tests with various paper-based alternative materials as well as tests without protective foils

Implementation of workshops in the German plants

GROHE cooperates with the Pacific Garbage Screening Project

GROHE water and energy saving technologies and products

GROHE has developed a line of smart water-saving products that use less water but do not reduce the enjoyment of the experience. GROHE EcoJoy faucets, for example, use a flow-limiting mousseur to reduce water consumption from 10 litres per minute to just over five litres. But because GROHE EcoJoy faucets also have an aerator, the user experiences the same voluminous flow as that given by a regular faucet.

With GROHE SilkMove ES the starting point of the lever in the mid-position only allows the inflow of cold water and prevents unnecessary hot water consumption. This ensures to save energy.

GROHE Blue provides sparkling, medium sparkling and still water that is filtered and chilled directly from the kitchen tap.
