Advancing Water Stewardship
Water is essential to our operations, products and services. The sustainable management of water resources is fundamental to our business.
We believe in the importance of water in protecting the environment, human health and economic development in our local communities. Through our stewardship, we aim to identify and support opportunities for our company and customers to use water resources in ways that are socially and culturally equitable, economically beneficial and environmentally sustainable.
Water Stewardship at Ecolab
Driving a Net-Positive Water Approach in Our Own Facilities
Our vision of a water-resilient future relies on tangible action. For Ecolab, that means continuing to drive corporate water management with our customers, while also identifying opportunities to implement water stewardship projects in our own operations.
To continue to make progress toward our 2030 Impact Goal of achieving a net-positive water impact, Ecolab has prioritized water stewardship projects at our sites with the aim of improving the overall health of the local watersheds. Our projects will use a three-pathway strategy to achieve a net-positive water impact by:
- Delivering outcomes through the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard
- Increasing water-use efficiency, reuse and recycling via Ecolab solutions and digital technologies
- Protecting local watersheds
