ECOLAB JOINS THE HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN'S BUSINESS COALITION FOR THE EQUALITY ACT

Equality Act

Ecolab supports the Equality Act legislation

As part of its continued commitment to diversity and inclusion, Ecolab has joined the Human Rights Campaign’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act.

Introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives on March 13, the Equality Act would amend existing civil rights laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, ensuring that members of the LGBTQ community receive equal protection under federal law as other protected groups. 


“We have a long-standing commitment to ensuring a safe and inclusive workplace, where our employees are free from discrimination. While civil rights laws have been in place for some time, these protections do not extend to all people, including those in the LGBTQ community. This legislation is essential to help safeguard those who are not currently protected.”

Ecolab Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

 

“We have a long-standing commitment to ensuring a safe and inclusive workplace, where our employees are free from discrimination,” said Doug Baker, chairman and chief executive officer. “While civil rights laws have been in place for some time, these protections do not extend to all people, including those in the LGBTQ community. This legislation is essential to help safeguard those who are not currently protected.”

The Human Rights Campaign’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act includes more than 160 large companies in support of the Equality Act legislation.

Pledging support for the Equality Act is the most recent example of Ecolab’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. In recent years, the company also has signed on to the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity and Inclusion, offered education for its employees on unconscious bias, established an Executive Diversity & Inclusion Council and increased the size and reach of its Employee Resource Groups.
