Ecolab hails success of environmental initiatives

7th April 2010

Ecolab has highlighted the progress it has made towards improving the sustainability and social responsibility of its business activities.

The pharmacy supplier has published its sixth annual sustainability report, outlining the ways in which it has made changes to its packaging, dispensing methods and manufacturing in order to reduce consumption of water and energy.

Improved safety and decreased wastage have been highlighted as key business priorities, as has the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from its production and logistics activities.

The firm also reported that it has donated $7.8 million (5.1 million pounds) to charitable organisations in the last year through various outlets.

Douglas Baker Jr, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Ecolab, said: “Sustainability is core to Ecolab’s vision to help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, and has been a cornerstone of how we do business since our company’s founding.”

This comes after the company was last month named by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the world’s most ethical corporations for the fourth year in a row.
