Ecolab Releases 2012 Sustainability Report

Ecolab today released its 2012 Sustainability Report, which highlights how the company helps customers in the food, healthcare, hospitality, energy and industrial markets reduce environmental impacts, operate efficiently and improve safety. The report also details Ecolab’s performance in line with its operating principles, which encompass economic progress, environmental stewardship, safety and social responsibility.

“Sustainability is core to Ecolab’s purpose to make the world cleaner, safer and healthier. Our true impact is realized by helping customers meet sustainability goals at more than one million locations worldwide,” said Ecolab Chairman and CEO Douglas M. Baker, Jr. “Our team of more than 25,000 sales-and-service representatives deliver sustainable solutions that provide clean water, safe food, abundant energy and healthy environments on a global scale.”

The report features several case studies that describe how Ecolab has helped customers achieve sustainability and performance goals, including providing technology that allowed one electric utility to reduce its withdrawal of freshwater by 290 million gallons per year. Another case study illustrates how Ecolab helped a global dairy company save 193 million gallons of water, 175 million kilowatts of energy and 665 cubic meters of raw materials in 2012 alone.

“Our 2012 Sustainability Report focuses on the measurable results we deliver to customers through our industry-leading services, solutions and expertise,” said Emilio Tenuta, Ecolab vice president of Corporate Sustainability. “Ecolab’s positive impact is grounded in a holistic, science-based approach to helping customers achieve their goals while using fewer resources.”

The report and detailed appendix also provide an overview of Ecolab’s sustainability performance. Highlights include reducing water use by 70 million gallons across the company’s manufacturing facilities, and donating $8 million to communities through the Ecolab Foundation, in-kind donations for disaster relief and volunteer hours.

Ecolab is recognized for its sustainability leadership. In 2012, the company was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, the FTSE4Good Index, the Carbon Disclosure Project’s Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index for the third consecutive year and to the Maplecroft Climate Innovation Index for the third consecutive year. Ecolab also received the American Chemistry Council Responsible Care Energy Efficiency Award, the NAFA Fleet Management Association Sustainable Fleet Award and was named to Ethisphere Institute’s list of the world’s most ethical companies for the seventh consecutive year.
