Water is our element. Our core competence lies in water optimisation, and water is the basis of our business. This means we are shaping one of the most important markets of the future. Our mission statement perfectly sums it up: We offer everbody the best possible drinking water experience according to their individual expectation.
Back in 1966, Heinz Hankammer founded BRITA with a vision to optimise tap water for consumers. Since then, BRITA has grown and evolved, offering professional filter solutions to help machinery last longer, and water dispensers for a refreshing and sustainable alternative to plastic bottled water. Today our family-owned business has grown to have partners in 70 countries across five continents and we still continually evaluate our supply chain and our corporate carbon footprint. Ensuring that we work sustainably means we can pass on the benefits to our customers and create a positive ripple effect.
Our BRITA water dispensers produce 86% less carbon emissions than bottled water
We are committed to do our part to fight the ongoing climate emergency. To do this, we analysed every element of our water dispensers – down to the smallest details – to ensure we had a complete understanding on the impact the production and operation of our dispensers have on the environment.
We are proud of the results, however these are just the first steps. We will continue to put actions into place to reduce our impact even more.
By switching to one of our water dispenser for your business you could save 1,3 tonnes of CO2 per year (based on an annual water consumption of 10.000 litres).
