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.
Sustainable from the outset. Single-use plastics targeted. Water consumption and workplace hydration doesn’t have to go hand-in-hand with plastic waste.
Reduced plastic waste
We empower people to actively reduce their environmental waste and save energy. Borg & Overström encourage the recycling of all packaging and consumables and promote reusable alternatives to single-use plastic water bottles.
Point-of-use water dispensers
Point-of-use water dispensers are an eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic bottles. With a lower carbon footprint and by removing the reliance for single-use plastic bottles, you know that you’re actively helping save the environment with a reliable and reusable water source.
Optimising recycling opportunities, our products are shipped in sustainably sourced cardboard boxes that can be recycled on-site. We use the most eco-friendly boxes possible and aim to remove all non-recyclable packaging.
Always improving our sustainable business practices, we follow the methods developed by EcoVadis: the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings.

Zero waste to landfills
Whether it’s cardboard, plastic, or scraps from the kitchen, we’re extremely proud that nothing from Borg & Overström HQ is sent to landfill.
As a green business, we continue to make every effort to incorporate environmentally friendly energy management methods. Energy is supplied to Borg & Overström HQ via solar panels and is entirely energy self-sufficient during daylight hours. Even our energy-efficient PIR lighting conserves energy.
