Acting today with a responsibility for tomorrow.
Kurita’s actions are directed by its environmental responsibility. Study the properties of water, master them, and we will create an environment in which nature and man are in harmony. This is one of the guiding principles of our company philosophy. And this is our daily commitment: in our research and development as well as in concrete solutions for you on site.
We are driven by the realization that water - our most important resource - is in limited supply. All our energy and competence is therefore invested in the effective usage of this precious commodity. Innovative technologies like Kuriverter® RC provide decisive impulses – with solutions that profit our customers. And the environment.
We commit ourselves not only to meet technological challenges but also use our abilities to support humanitarian projects.

Support in humanitarian projects.
Kurita demonstrates its social commitment and frequently donates where it is needed.
