Nalco and Sustainability
Growing customer interest in sustainable development is driven by both increased consumer demand for responsible business management and additional regulatory requirements. We are uniquely positioned to help customers improve their environmental performance, with nearly all of our offerings providing social benefits such as:
- Cleaner water and air
- Improved freshwater availability driven by reduction, recycling and reuse of water in production and other processes
- Reductions in greenhouse gases resulting from energy efficiency improvements
- Reduced solid waste generation and hazardous materials exposure
For more than eight decades, we have combined our expertise in efficient water and energy solutions to help our customers save money while improving the environment and reducing overall natural resource consumption. We optimize natural resources and drive prosperity through unrivaled engineered solutions, and are always committed to creating harmony between the environment and the economy.
The 2011 Ecolab Sustainability Report contains information on how Ecolab and Nalco are making strides toward our vision of helping provide the world with clean water, safe food, abundant energy and healthy environments. It includes both how we are helping our customers achieve their sustainability goals and our progress in reducing our environmental footprint.
