Grundfos Pumps to sponsor National Water Week 2009
Grundfos Pumps Australia has confirmed that it has come on board as a sponsor of National Water Week being held 18-24 October 2009. This year’s National Water Week theme is Securing our Water Future.
National Water Week is designed to assist communities to take actions that help protect and conserve our most precious resource - water. The week provides special emphasis on fostering grassroots participation and behavioural change and consists of a national schedule of programs and events that encourage protection, rehabilitation and improvement of water environments.
Grundfos decided on its sponsorship after hearing about the activities that have taken place in previous years. Managing Director Steen Jensen said: “As a company that actively encourages sustainable water use and management, we are pleased to confirm our sponsorship of National Water Week.”
Jensen continued: “At Grundfos, we do our utmost to provide pumping solutions that have respect for the environment, especially in terms of water and energy conservation and use of materials. It is our hope that individuals, schools, community groups, small businesses and corporate bodies will all do their part to ensure that Australia’s water resources are secure for generations to come.”
In addition to supporting National Water Week, Grundfos Pumps has been working to endorse sustainable water-use practices through its sponsorship of the Water Conservation category of the Keep Australia Beautiful Tidy Towns and Sustainable Cities awards programs.
National Water Week is managed by the Australian Water Association (AWA) in partnership with the National Water Commission and exists with the support of the water industry and organisations that seek to promote the messages of sustainable water use and management. This year, National Water Week is supported by DLA Phillips Fox, Smart Approved WaterMark and Grundfos Pumps.
