Sustainable hydration
for a greener planet

Protecting the source of pure water; environmental sustainability is built into our business culture.

Eliminating the need for single-use plastics, Borg & Overström deliver sustainable designs that actively reduce negative impacts on the environment. Every water dispenser is designed and manufactured following an ecological footprint that minimises your reliances on single-use plastics and maximises your energy savings.


Eco-friendly products

Sustainable from the outset. Single-use plastics targeted. Water consumption and workplace hydration doesn’t have to go hand-in-hand with plastic waste.
