Water Stewardship

Ecolab believes in the importance of water in protecting the environment, human health and economic development in our communities. Through our stewardship efforts, we identify and support opportunities for our company and customers to reduce freshwater use and use water resources in ways that are socially and culturally equitable, economically beneficial and environmentally sustainable.

Our vision of a water-resilient future relies on action. We continue to drive corporate water management and work with partners across the globe to advance collective action in at-risk watersheds. All these efforts are directed at helping us achieve our 2030 Impact Goal to further expand our positive water impact.

Climate Leadership

Climate change is among the most urgent challenges of our time. As a company with global manufacturing operations, we work tirelessly to minimize our total carbon footprint. But our greatest impact is through the work we do with our customers.

Ecolab energy-saving solutions and services help customers reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in their own operations, which means that our positive impact on the planet is multiplied at more than 3 million locations around the world.

Through these continuous, combined efforts, we aim to deliver a net positive climate impact by 2030.
