Pentair Announces Social Responsibility Strategic Targets


Pentair plc (NYSE:PNR), a leading provider of water treatment and sustainable solutions, today announced its Social Responsibility Strategic Targets. The new targets were launched with the release of Pentair's 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report, which highlights the company's initiatives to be a leading socially responsible company as it delivers smart, sustainable solutions that empower customers and employees to make the most of life's essential resources.

"As a leading provider of water treatment and sustainable solutions, we are proud of our efforts to further Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) stewardship that are highlighted in our 2020 Corporate Responsibility Report," said John L. Stauch, Pentair President and CEO. "With the announcement of our Social Responsibility Strategic Targets we are looking forward to our continued role in reducing our impact on the environment and developing solutions to address the global water and climate change challenges of the future."

Pentair's Social Responsibility Strategic Targets Include:

  1. Carbon Footprint Reduction: We are targeting reducing our Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent from a 2019 baseline by 2030, and aim to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050
  2. Water Reduction: We are targeting a 30 percent reduction in overall water withdrawal from a 2019 baseline by 2030
  3. Product Design for Sustainability: We plan to further assess, design, and commercialize our products for environmental sustainability to reduce our customers' impact on climate change. We plan to enhance our product innovation process in 2021, launching it in 2022.
  4. Responsible Supply Chain: In partnership with our suppliers, we are expanding our social responsibility strategy beyond our operations to build a more sustainable supply chain. This includes our plan to refresh our Supplier Code of Conduct with increased focus on environmental sustainability and social responsibility in 2021, and launching an updated supplier assessment process in 2022.
  5. Inclusion & Diversity: Our diversity and inclusion targets include achieving an inclusive and diverse workforce and leadership team that embraces the communities in which we live, work, and serve, with a specific focus on increasing women in leadership positions globally and persons of color representation in U.S. leadership positions.

"We are excited about our Social Responsibility Strategic Targets as they are focused in the areas that matter to our employees, customers, shareholders, and the community and we expect them to positively contribute to our business and society," said Karla Robertson, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, Secretary, and Chief Social Responsibility Officer. "We are integrating ESG practices throughout our businesses, creating broad accountability for our strategy, and actively tracking and measuring our progress on our journey in building a more sustainable company."
