Lixil's Grohe brand has contributed 1.2million euros raised through its Energy for Life campaign to support the global sanitation crisis. Last year, Grohe ran its Energy for Life campaign across 13 countries in Europe including the UK, the Middle East and North Africa, contributing 1€ for every eligible shower system and thermostat sold to support Unicef and Lixil’s Make a Splash! partnership. The total of 1.2million euros collected was applied directly to partnership activities, supporting the underserved communities of Nigeria and Indonesia to help people gain access to basic and safely managed sanitation and hygiene.
The Make a Splash! shared-value partnership between Lixil and Unicef launched in 2018. Combining Unicef’s sanitation behaviour change and sanitation systems strengthening efforts with access to Lixil’s readily available and affordable SATO brand of solutions, the partnership reached 2.9 million people and expanded its scope to a total of six countries in 2021. This includes three of the world’s most populated countries – Nigeria, Indonesia, and India.
“At Lixil, we are proud of our global partnership with Unicef and Grohe’s ‘Energy for Life’ campaign. It will support the immediate and long-lasting impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Nigeria and Indonesia, where issues like open defecation and unsafe sanitation are a bitter reality for the majority of the population. Water is at the core of our business, and as a global leader, we are aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goal 6. We are committed to share our expertise and drive change for the better – to make access to clean water and sanitation a reality for everyone, everywhere,” said Jonas Brennwald, leader Lixil EMENA.
