Geberit has supplied to projects such as the Emirates Palace
Sanitary technology specialist, Geberit, is recognised for its commitment to sustainability. The company was named as one of the top ten most sustainable companies in the world in a recent study by Toronto-based media company, Corporate Knights.
Corporate Knights collected data on 3000 global public companies and evaluated them according to 11 different metrics, including energy productivity, waste productivity, CEO-to-average-worker pay ratio and transparency.
This first-ever ranking of the world’s 100 most sustainable companies was released in Davos at the World Economic Forum in January and Geberit was the only plumbing manufacturer to be included in the top ten.
Established in 1847, the company manufactures sanitary systems, which includes installation systems, cisterns and mechanisms, faucets, flushing systems, waste fittings and traps, and showers and toilets, as well as piping systems, which includes building drainage systems and supply systems.
It was responsible for implementing the drainage system at Emirates Palace, and also supplied to the Burj Al Arab. Geberit has 15 production sites in seven different countries, with its main production capabilities centred in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.
In 2009, it trained approximately 30,000 plumbers, sanitary engineers and architects in Geberit systems and software tools at the company’s 25 own training centers in Europe and overseas.
