Misurare il nostro impatto

Nelle nostre operazioni...

Alongside the impact we make with our customers, we know we can make a difference through our own operations. We are making steady, measurable progress toward our 2030 goals around water, climate, diversity, equity and inclusion, and safety.

Avere un impatto idrico positivo

The World Resources Institute projects that, under a business-as-usual scenario, the world will face a 56% freshwater deficit by 2030, placing urgent pressure on businesses to rethink the way water resources are managed. La nostra visione di una futura gestione resiliente dell'acqua si affida a interventi tangibili. For Ecolab, that means continuing to drive water management with our customers, while also identifying opportunities to implement water stewardship projects in our own operations.  Entro il 2030, puntiamo a:


  • Reduce water impact by 40% per unit production across our enterprise, from our 2018 base year
  • Restore greater than 50% of our absolute water withdrawal volume at high-risk sites
  • Achieve Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) Standard certification in high-risk watersheds

We reduced overall water impact intensity by 25%, from our 2018 base year, by:

  • Implementing Ecolab solutions such as 3D TRASAR™, Water Flow Intelligence and digital tools like the Smart Water Navigator, to support smart water management practices
  • Delivering on projects that resulted in approximately 27 million gallons (~103,000 cubic meters) of water savings
  • Introducing an internal water management tool to guide facility teams on water reduction, reuse and recycling methods

We restored water in our communities, reducing and replenishing 34% of our absolute water withdrawal at high-risk sites by:

  • Working with partners within the local water basins in which we operate to understand shared water challenges and addressing them with nature-based solutions
  • Completing water efficiency and reuse projects that reduce our dependency on community water supplies

We have achieved Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) certification at six facilities, resulting in water savings of almost 50 million gallons (~190,000 cubic meters) annually.

Contrastare le emissioni di carbonio

Ecolab joined the UN Global Compact’s Business Ambition for 1.5˚C, committing to reduce our absolute Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieve net-zero across our value chain by 2050. We have also committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2030 through the RE100 initiative, a global initiative bringing together the world’s most influential businesses committed to 100% renewable energy, and have set a science-based target (SBT) addressing our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, which was approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).


To help meet our ambitious goals, we use a combination of tactics supported by science-based strategies. In 2021, we:

  • Reduced absolute Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by 28%, from our 2018 base year, by focusing on process improvement projects that reduced total energy consumption by almost 5.4 billion BTUs
  • Sourced 69% of our total electricity from renewable sources
  • Piloted vehicle fleet electrification projects in Europe and North America

Supportare una forza lavoro diversificata e inclusiva

We believe that a diverse, inclusive and purpose-driven team is critical to the success of our individual associates, company, customers and communities. These goals are an intentional step to drive significant change to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization as we seek to be as, or more, diverse as the markets in which we operate. We continue to focus on:


  • Mantenere l'equità retributiva di Ecolab negli Stati Uniti ed espanderla a livello globale
  • Increasing management level gender diversity to 35%, with the ultimate goal of gender parity
  • Increasing management level ethnic/racial diversity to 25%, as we seek to meet full representation of the U.S. workforce at all levels


We use a combination of strategies to help us on our path to meet our 2030 Impact Goals around diversity including:

  • Demonstrating leadership from the top levels of our organization
  • Setting tangible, team-based targets
  • Creating more diverse candidate pools
  • Educating our employee base on the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Leveraging Employee Resource Groups

As a result of these efforts, in 2021:

  • 38% of all new management-level hires globally were women and 35% of all new management-level hires in the U.S. were people of color
  • More than one third of our global workforce has completed an Allyship in Action training course
  • We grew management-level gender diversity to 25.5% and management-level ethnic/racial diversity in the U.S. to 18.8%.
