Wilo has set out its plans to achieve Net Zero carbon after releasing its latest Sustainability Report detailing its business-wide sustainability commitments.
The company reported 93% annual growth in sustainability in 2022, assuring efficiency and innovation within the wider industry. Its wide range of technology helps to secure and improve critical infrastructure, safeguarding the supply of water, energy and food.
Underpinning the firm's sustainability strategy is its commitment to a growth rate of 15% per annum within smart products, building on its 93% net sales growth within smart products and systems in 2022.
In 2020, the Group devised a strategic analysis of Scope 1 and 2 emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. As of 2022, combined Scope emissions stand at -36%. Including four strategic pillars, its action plan consists of: enhancing energy efficiency, increasing in-house electricity generation, purchasing green electricity and offsetting remaining emissions.
The company’s commitment to energy efficiency is outlined in its agenda to replace inefficient pumps. Wilo’s energy solutions engage end-users of its product offering to upgrade their pump equipment to more energy efficient and carbon-conscious alternatives. Customers can access free energy audits, physically proving to them how much energy and carbon they can save by switching to a more efficient product.
Commenting on the report, Lee Tebbatt, managing director, said: “The Wilo Group’s ongoing commitment to sustainability is a glowing testament to our values and culture. With a number of significant landmarks achieved, and ongoing development of our smart pump offering, the report marks sustainability at the top of the Wilo agenda.
“While lowering emissions remains a key focus, we extended our commitments across a much wider scope in 2022, extending into this year and beyond. Water sustainability was one of our priorities for the year, with a significant focus on the accessibility and conservation of clean water supply. We facilitated access to clean water for 100m people, strategised a 35% annual growth rate in smart water solutions and importantly, set a strict target of 20% reduction in water consumption by 2025.”
