Grundfos appointed as the industry partner to support SP green campus ambitions

Grundfos, a global leader in advanced pump solutions and water technology, has been appointed by Singapore Polytechnic (SP) to be its industry partner to co-drive and support its decarbonisation journey through greater water and energy efficiency on campus.

The appointment is an expansion of a partnership with Grundfos signed back in 2021

In alignment with the Singapore Green Plan 2030, SP has set out a decarbonisation journey of greening its campus, reducing its environmental impact, and nurturing stewards of sustainability, with ongoing efforts towards certifying all 22 buildings in SP Green Mark Platinum by 2025.

The two parties look to co-develop energy and water-efficient smart solutions that support industries in Singapore in their efforts to be sustainable, through collaboration, talent development, and sustainability education.

Under this newly expanded remit, Grundfos will be providing SP with industry expertise and counsel on how the polytechnic can achieve greater water efficiency on campus, by evaluating how smart water solutions can help reduce its water and carbon footprint.

Grundfos will also be providing proof of concepts in the form of regular knowledge sharing on pilot projects

To mark this occasion, an SP delegation led by principal and CEO, Soh Wai Wah, visited Grundfos global headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark for the partnership agreement signing ceremony. The delegate also toured the Grundfos wastewater treatment plant, the CR factory and dairy producer Arla’s Aarhus facility to experience smart water solutions in action.

Commenting on this new milestone, Eric Lai, Grundfos regional managing director, industry – APAC and country director for Singapore, said that for Grundfos to support SP decarbonisation journey was a natural next step in their long-standing partnership. “With the first iteration of our partnership, we had set out to support Singapore’s small and medium-sized enterprises in harnessing energy and water-efficient smart solutions. Today, we see SP demonstrating its commitment to ‘walk the talk’, by working with us to achieve a water and energy-efficient green campus using intelligent technology.”
