In the HVAC category Viessmann clearly scored the best, followed by Vaillant. The Worcester Bosch group has a strong image (30%) when it comes to sustainability in the UK.

Most German and English installers were able to mention a brand which they perceived as being most dedicated to sustainability in the HVAC category, whilst colleagues in Poland & France had the most difficulties mentioning brands.

In the Plumbing category, Grohe took the lead. Grohe was the only brand mentioned in more than 1 country. Hansgrohe has a strong image (32%) in Germany when it comes to sustainability.
