DENMARK : Grundfos is one of the world’s leading water technology companies with a mission to deliver solutions to the world’s water and climate challenges. The Grundfos Supplier Awards celebrate strong partnerships built on a foundation of trusted collaboration recognizing suppliers who have gone above and beyond in 2023.

The global partnership between GEODIS and Grundfos spans 38 years. GEODIS provides Grundfos with end-to-end logistics services, air and ocean freight as well as warehousing services around the world. Since the beginning of 2022, GEODIS has been working closely with Grundfos to reduce CO2 emission on port-to-port sea freight through the use of the GEODIS Sustainable Marine Fuel insetting program which covers 100% of the CO2 emissions. As a result of these efforts, Grundfos has achieved a reduction of 6,500 tons of carbon emissions in 2023 and 2022.

”Our suppliers play a crucial role in helping us achieve our goals, innovate, and deliver exceptional products to our customers worldwide. We continuously raise the bar for excellence, particularly in sustainability and quality. This means that our requirements for suppliers are also becoming increasingly stringent”, says Grundfos Chief Purchasing Officer, Silvio Vanzo, “We are committed to professionalizing our supplier collaboration processes and are immensely grateful to have such outstanding suppliers like GEODIS who share and support our ambitions. Together, we are driving progress, sustainability, and success, creating a brighter future for everyone involved.”

“We are deeply honored to receive the Indirect Sustainability award. We are fully committed to a process of reducing our carbon emissions through the application of a science-based approach. We recognize the significant impact that logistics and transportation activities can have on the environment. We are also very aware that there is much to be done and we would like to thank Grundfos for the opportunity to collaborate and advance our efforts in developing responsible and sustainable logistics.”, said Virginie Delcroix, Executive Vice President Group Sustainable Development, GEODIS.
