Working together to protect our world’s water

In celebration of World Water Day, Ecolab announced its membership in the new Water Resilience Coalition, an industry-driven initiative of the United Nations Global Compact’s CEO Water Mandate. The Coalition aims to elevate global water stress to the top of the corporate agenda and preserve the world’s freshwater resources through collective action in water-stressed basins and ambitious, quantifiable commitments.

Member companies will commit to a water resilience pledge and will work together to accomplish goals centered on: 

  • A net positive water impact
  • Water resilient value chains
  • Raising the ambition of water resilience through public and corporate outreach

Our Vision for Clean Water

In this World, Nothing Happens Without Water

Water is key to daily life, for individuals and industry alike. Whether producing goods to cleaning facilities to preparing and protecting food – we need water. But our world experiences water challenges each day, from scarcity to changing weather patterns. Climate change is exacerbating these issues.

Making Water Work for Our Partners

Around the world, in every industry, companies are setting ambitious water conservation goals. Ecolab helps our partners advance their goals with innovative technologies and chemistries, real-time data and monitoring, and expert service. As our business partners reduce, reuse and recycle water, they lower their impact on the environment, increase operational efficiency and reduce water, energy and costs. .

Managing Water for the World Tomorrow

Smart water management supports resilient businesses and communities. It reduces energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. It helps businesses create sustainable growth for flourishing societies. Whatever we need to create tomorrow’s world, it starts with water. 

 

How We're Driving Progress

We actively seek to improve the use of clean water resources within our own operations and within the watersheds in which we operate. Examples of our water stewardship work include:
