Ecolab Named to CDP Water Security A List for Sustainable Water Management


Ecolab Inc., the global leader in water, food safety and public health technologies and services, has been named to the Water Security List, with an A rating by CDP, the nonprofit global environmental disclosure platform. This year's CDP Water Security A List recognized 71 companies globally for their sustainable water management initiatives.

"Ecolab's inclusion on the A List is recognition of our work to advance sustainable and strategic water management with our customers and in our own operations," said Emilio Tenuta, chief sustainability officer at Ecolab. "As we enter this new decade, we are expanding our capabilities to help our partners and our communities thrive in an era of growing natural resource constraints and global environmental pressures."

Ecolab also received an A- rating from CDP on climate, recognizing the company's work to mitigate the impacts of climate change, including aligning its operations and supply chain to the U.N. Global Compact's Business Ambition for 1.5?C.

Through innovative solutions and on-the-ground support, Ecolab helps businesses across all industries reduce reliance on the world's limited natural resources, including water and energy. In 2018, Ecolab helped customers conserve nearly 190 billion gallons of water, equivalent to the annual drinking water needs of more than 657 million people. By reducing water use, Ecolab also helped customers save more than 19 trillion BTUs of energy and avoid 2.4 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

Companies named to the A List are recognized as pioneers for their action on climate change, water and deforestation. Thousands of companies disclose their environmental data and are rated on the comprehensiveness, transparency and performance of their sustainability programs. More information on the CDP A List is available on the CDP website at www.cdp.net/en/companies/companies-scores.
