The IPE-Grundfos Sustainability Partnership: Pioneering a Future of Sustainable Solutions


In an era where climate change and water scarcity looms large, the partnership between Illinois Process Equipment (IPE) and Grundfos emerges as a beacon of hope and innovation. This collaboration is not just a union of two companies but a fusion of shared visions, goals, and a commitment to driving sustainability in the water and energy sectors.

At the heart of the IPE-Grundfos partnership is a profound understanding of the critical challenges facing our planet and a relentless drive to address them through technological advancements and strategic initiatives.

Embarking on a Greener Path

Joining forces with Grundfos, IPE embarks on a sustainability adventure poised to transform the industry. This journey is designed to empower organizations to identify energy optimization opportunities comprehensively, fostering a deeper understanding of sustainability practices within the local market. With project-based pricing for Energy Check Opportunities, specialized training, and tools to conduct energy checks, the partnership equips businesses like IPE with everything we need to excel in our sustainability efforts to deliver the many benefits to our customers.

The rationale for replacing older, inefficient pumps is clear; the investment in new, energy-efficient technology pays dividends far beyond the initial cost, reducing lifetime energy expenses significantly. This approach is symbolic of the partnership’s strategy to prioritize sustainability in every facet of operations.

Leading with Purpose: The Urgency of Sustainability

In alignment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), the IPE-Grundfos partnership is guided by scientifically based emissions reduction targets to limit global warming in accordance with the Paris Agreement. This initiative categorizes emissions into three scopes, addressing direct and indirect emissions across a company’s value chain. The global reach and influence of the SBTi underscore the importance of ambitious climate action, with over 6,000 companies worldwide committed to advancing toward a net-zero economy.
