As the world’s number one single-brand manufacturer of luxury bathware, Grohe’s groundbreaking designs focus on the tiniest details while also taking into account the larger ecological picture. From its water and energy-saving designs to its partnerships with environmental and industry bodies, Grohe is driven by a desire to give its customers the very best.

Given its insistence on aligning itself with likeminded partners, it’s no surprise then that Charter House, Grohe’s exclusive agent in Sri Lanka, is similarly committed to the highest standards of quality and service.

Grohe’s dedication to sustainability extends to the economic, ethical, and environmental dimensions of its business. As an ISO 14001 certified company, Grohe is at the forefront of a new generation of companies that understand the importance of environmental management. This coveted certification attests to the efficiency and effectiveness of the German firm’s environmental management systems, which include organizational practices that emphasize the gathering, interpretation, and communication of environmentally relevant information.

This attention to its environmental impact is also evident in Grohe’s premium bathware. Indeed, when designing and manufacturing its products, Grohe takes great care to reduce any adverse environmental effects, conducting in-depth assessments to ensure that the manufacturing process and the final product, as well as the customer’s use of it, have minimal impact on the planet. For example, the Grohe WaterCare line of bathware products integrates water-conserving technology to help users save both water and money without compromising on functionality or style.

The eco-friendliness of the Grohe WaterCare range of products has been recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council, which awards LEED credits for WaterCare products. Signifying Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), these credits are a universally accepted standard for benchmarking energy-efficient building practices. Architects and designers who use Grohe WaterCare faucets and showerheads will not only help their clients earn up to 2 LEED credits for each product used in a new building, but will also aid them to reduce operating costs and harmful greenhouse emissions.  Charter House, the number one provider of premium bathware in Sri Lanka and a leader in the supply of industrial and engineering solutions, is helping to design a more environmentally friendly nation.
