GROHE Cradle-to-Cradle Certified Range.
Bring circularity to all projects, with bathroom & kitchen fittings that can be endlessly reused and recycled.
Having been working towards approaching a circular economy for many years, GROHE is proud to have four of its bestselling products confirmed as Cradle-to-Cradle certified since March 2021.
GROHE has manufactured and re-designed four of its best-selling products to have the potential to be re-used endlessly, offering a whole new take on the concept of recycling. The Cradle-to-Cradle design principles enable GROHE to drastically reduce the use of new resources, as a product is designed and manufactured with the intent of using its components in its end-of-life-phase for the creation of new products, resulting in the ultimate sustainable solution.
GROHE’s bestselling taps, GROHE BauEdge S-Size, GROHE Eurosmart S-Size, GROHE Eurosmart Kitchen and the GROHE Tempesta shower rail set are now Cradle to Cradle Certified at the Gold level, meeting one of the certifications’ highest requirements. In addition, the sustainable impact of GROHE BauEdge and GROHE Eurosmart basin mixer is enhanced with SilkMove ES technology, where ES stands for energy-saving.
The technology prevents the unnecessary use of hot water by supplying only cold water with the lever in the middle position, while GROHE’s core water-saving technology, EcoJoy, is also integrated throughout the range, further heightening the sustainable credentials of all products.
- With waste recycling rates of 99 percent and a use of brass with recycling proportions of up to 80 percent, GROHE has incrementally approached a circular economy for years.
- After switching to CO2-neutral production in April 2020 and replacing all plastic components in product packaging with environment-friendly alternatives in 2021, the global brand is once again reinforcing its commitment to a sustainable transformation.
- Resource Efficiency – the C2C concept enables GROHE to drastically reduce the use of new resources: a product is designed and manufactured with the intent of using its components in its end-of-life-phase for the creation of new products.
- The technology prevents the unnecessary use of hot water by supplying only cold water with the faucet lever in the middle position. In this way, GROHE’s SilkeMove ES technology can help reduce a building’s carbon footprint – particularly important in light of the fact that carbon emissions from buildings and construction constitute almost 40% of global carbon emissions.
