Zep Takes a Stand for Sustainability with New Stewardship Focus


There is growing demand from employees, customers, and investors for companies to do more than deliver financial returns. Today's conscious consumer expects companies to contribute positively to environmental and social causes. Zep, Inc., an innovator, producer and distributor of maintenance, cleaning, and sanitation solutions, announced today the launch of Zep Stewardship, a new company-wide initiative to make the planet safer, cleaner, and more productive.

Zep Stewardship is an Environmental Social Governance (ESG) strategy that aligns with Zep's key values: Stewardship, Passion for Problem Solving, Empowerment, Expertise, and Doing the Right Thing. In 2020, Zep conducted an extensive ESG materiality assessment based on Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards to develop and inform its priority areas.

"Zep Stewardship is only the beginning of our commitment to keep people safe and to a build a cleaner and more productive world. This promise starts with our employees, customers, and communities," said Matt Duncan, Zep's Chief Administrative Officer. "We built Zep Stewardship from the inside out, enlisting the insights, leadership and support of our people and customers and referencing reputable ESG guidelines and standards to inform our goals and vision."

Zep Stewardship focuses on five key areas: health and safety, carbon emissions, water usage and effluents, diversity and inclusion, and marketing and labeling.

Health and Safety

Carbon Emissions

Water Usage and Effluents

Diversity and Inclusion

Marketing and Labeling

"Zep Stewardship is a step toward more transparency, better procedures for environmental and occupational safety and more support for our communities," Duncan said.
