Hay Festival 2018
Celebrating empathy, ingenuity and resilience at Hay Literary Festival 2018
The world needs leaders, innovators and pioneers.
At Geberit we're recognised by influential publications such as Forbes as being a leading global innovator ( #18 ). At the forefront in the realisation of the new bathroom environment, we help in the creation of spaces to disconnect from the busy day to day pressures of work, friends and family committments, and to reconnect with mind and body. Through stimulating our senses in our very own sensory space we take the first steps to building resiliance and reconnecting with the potential we each have to be leaders, innovators and pioneers in our own right.

A Global Commitment
Major opportunities with growth potential are arising for companies geared towards sustainable products and services – such as Geberit. We see our contribution above all in four UN Sustainable Development Goals .
The contributions to goal number 6 “Ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”, number 8 “Promote sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all”, number 9 “Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation”, and goal number 11 “Make cities safe, resilient and sustainable” are included in Geberit’s reporting .
Innovation and Sustainability
The products that Geberit design and produce from the advanced AquaClean shower toilet to the ergonomically created Acanto range build in sustainability from the outset. Geberit consistently focuses on eco-design . The company aims to use the resources required to manufacture a product intelligently and prudently in order to impact the environment as little as possible. Geberit focuses on sustainability as early as the product development phase. At the centre of these efforts are environmentally friendly materials and functional principles, minimised risks and a high level of resource efficiency in the production process and for the product itself.
Our Social Commitment
For Geberit iteslf, the areas in which sustainability is created include: resource-efficient and sustainable systems for water management in buildings, water-saving and sustainable products, environmentally friendly and resource-efficient production, procurement and logistics with high environmental and ethical standards as well as good and safe working conditions for the some 11,700 employees worldwide.
Social responsibility is realised among other things within the scope of global social projects relating to the core competencies of water and sanitary facilities, and is intensified through memberships such as that with the non-profit organisation Swiss Water Partnership aimed at promoting international dialogue on water. There is also a long-term partnership with the Swiss development organisation Helvetas .
