Climate Leaders

How to preserve our planet’s resources by using innovative and sustainable water treatment

At BWT we are proud to be able to contribute with our sustain­able tech­nolo­gies and prod­ucts to preserve our planet’s most precious resource: water. Our slogan “For You and Planet Blue” perfectly expresses our mission and our recently defined “BWT Innovations4Future” Strategy – with (Plastic) Bottle Free Zones, Fuel Cell Membrane Tech­nolo­gies and the BWT Aqua Pearls For You & Planet Blue Foun­da­tion – which under­lines our focus on sustain­able prod­ucts and solu­tions to change our plastic planet into planet blue again.

BWT has been elected along with 49 other inter­na­tional compa­nies to partic­i­pate in the “50 Sustain­ability & Climate Leaders” initia­tive, hosted by Bloomberg, the world­wide leading busi­ness and finance network, and the United Nations. This campaign uses inspiring documentary-​style films to iden­tify and cele­brate the leading orga­ni­za­tions and pioneers in their respec­tive indus­tries around the globe, who are recog­nizing the sustain­able chal­lenges we face on our planet.

Water is our elixir of life and one of the major chal­lenges of the 21st century. Since its foun­da­tion in 1990 BWT’s mission is to ensure the highest level of safety, hygiene, health, and well-​being in daily contact with water with economic and ecolog­ical water treat­ment tech­nolo­gies. Today, the Best Water Tech­nology Group is Europe's leading water tech­nology company. Around 5,000 employees work towards the goal of providing customers from private house­holds, industry, commerce, hotels and munic­i­pal­i­ties with modern and sustain­able treat­ment systems and service for drinking water, phar­ma­ceu­tical and process water, heating water, boiler, cooling and air-​conditioning water, and swim­ming pool water with optimum water quality for all areas of appli­ca­tion - from the source to the leachate.

BWT Bottle Free Zones

Use local Water – avoid single-use plastic bottles

BWT's declared goal is to provide water of perfect drinking water quality everywhere in the world. With innovative, patented BWT technologies, it is possible to filter local water and at the same time enrich it with valuable minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, zinc, and silicate. Thanks to BWT, great-tasting, mineralized water of the best quality comes directly from the tap, the water dispenser, or the table water filter. This saves the time-consuming transport, storage, and disposal of water bottles and thus helps reducing transport, CO2 emissions and plastic waste.

"For me fuel cell is not only the energy converter of the 21st century, it is also the most efficient solution to produce in the sustainable way energy and heat. It is our common responsibility to fight for this technology instead of the battery and I am proud that BWT Fumatech with its worldwide best performing membranes is able to contribute to the break-through of this sustainable energy converter and thus help to decarbonize our planet"
Andreas Weissenbacher, CEO, BWT

Membranes for Fuel Cells

The sustainable energy converter of the 21st century

For more than 20 years, BWT is investing into the development and production of materials and components for the production of clean water, for the production of hydrogen by electrolysis of water, for the conversion of energy in fuel cells and finally for the conversion of carbondioxide and hydrogen into green fuels. BWT is a global supplier of membranes for the entire cycle from water to hydrogen and from hydrogen to electricity and to water again.

"We hope that we can build bridges all over the world. We take care altogether that everybody, sooner or later, will have safe, healthy drinking water on our globe.”
Andreas Weis­senbacher, CEO, BWT

We share every sip

BWT has always been committed to helping people in need and supporting projects that make a demonstrable contribution to the sustainable development of regions affected by poverty. As part of the b.waterMISSION project, a total of 10,000 wells are being built in The Gambia, Tanzania and surrounding areas with the help of BWT to give local people access to clean drinking water. Bottle Free Zones thus not only stand for the best water, but they also actually change the world - sip by sip.
