Sparkling ideas for a better quality of life.

Social commitment

With our social projects, we intend to make a sustainable contribution to improving quality of life – by helping people in developing regions to have better basic sanitary services and thus guaranteeing them a fundamental resource.

2.6 billion people worldwide, including a billion children, currently live without any basic sanitary facilities whatsoever, putting the health of the affected people acutely at risk: devastating diseases such as cholera, malaria and typhoid can spread rapidly as a result of inadequate hygiene.

In addition to providing money and materials, Geberit also plans, manages and coordinates the entire social project with its own employees and apprentices. Every year since 2008, a group of Geberit apprentices has spent two weeks working on site at various locations around the world.
