Our entire earth’s surface consists to more than 70 percent of water. The global water resources together amount to around 1.4 billion cubic kilometres. However, the largest part pf this is salt water – and only about 2.5 percent is fresh water. Only about 213,000 cubic kilometres of this in turn are accessible to humanity. This water can be found in lakes or rivers, for example. This makes drinking water one of the most valuable resources of all. For us, this is reason enough to spend a great deal of time on it. Closely linked to this is also the protection of the environment, which is a top priority at every step of JUDO’s business activities.
Our developments have always not only had a significant impact on our company, but have also helped shape the market. We create room for new ideas through an atmosphere of creative freedom, and we see every criticism as an opportunity to do something better. This is an important aspect that distinguishes and drives us as innovators.
