NIBE know that water scarcity is a global problem that is increasing. Today we use relatively small quantities of water and our production sites are located where there is access to water. However, the circumstances can change, and that is why we want to monitor our water use.

The water is mostly used as cooling water that is recirculated for a long time in a closed system. Process water is also recirculated to a large extent.
Work is ongoing to be able to calculate the recycled volumes. The result for 2017 is 14 percent recycled water. 6 out of 90 companies have reported recycled water (7%).
