Geberit focuses on eco-design

For over ten years, Geberit has followed the principle that each new product must be better than its predecessor from an ecological perspective in order to save natural resources. For example, significant material savings were achieved as part of the development of the CleanLine shower channel. 85% less stainless steel is now required per shower channel. Furthermore, it was also possible to significantly reduce the amount of packaging material. Compared to the predecessor model, these measures led to a significant annual reduction in CO2 emissions of around 7,300 tonnes in total. Learn more

A commitment to the circular economy

Among other aspects, Geberit products are characterised by the use of high-quality materials and a service life spanning several decades. The products are usually backwards-compatible and can be cleaned, maintained and repaired easily. A significant proportion of the product range has a guaranteed spare parts availability of up to 25 years. Bought-in recycled plastics also play an increasing role in closing material cycles. For example, a total of 940 tonnes of regranulated ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) was used in fill and flush valve production in 2020. Learn more

Careful use of plastics

Geberit ensures that plastic granules used in production do not pollute the environment. In 2020, Geberit joined Operation Clean Sweep (OCS). OCS is an international initiative promoted by the plastics industry dedicated to preventing the loss of plastic granules, flakes and powder and ensuring that these materials do not pollute the environment.
