Through the Social Responsibility Award, we will showcase the best local community and charity initiatives across the Grundfos Group and acknowledge the good will and dedication of the employees around the world. Every year, a Grundfos Company can take home a diploma and a statuette, along with a 20,000 € grant for their cause.
The statuette “Ivan” is built to resemble the logo for Grundfos Social Responsibility, combining a person and a heart. The shell is 3D printed and polished using a special technique. The heart is cut from a recycled Grundfos circulator pump, and the base is an old impeller. The filling is recycled copper thread from the Recycling Workshop in Bjerringbro, where some of the flex workers are employed.
Furthermore, the Foundation Board has set aside 20,000 € annually as prize money. The prize money will go directly to the winning project / initiative.
How are the winners selected?
The nominations are evaluated by the jury:
– Annette Due Jensen, Board Member, Poul Due Jensen Foundation
– Mogens Lindhard, Senior Manager, CSR, Grundfos
– Pia Yasuko Rask, Director for Safe Water, Grundfos
The jury meets in June to select the winner.
The prize was awarded for the first time at the Grundfos Prize Ceremony in October 2017.
