Our Vision for Climate

Tackling an urgent global issue
Climate change is happening right now. Responsible companies are determined to do their part in addressing it. Ecolab helps them lower their carbon emissions by finding new efficiencies and lowering their water and energy use. It's a win-win: companies that use less water, energy and resources also save costs.  

Finding a responsible way forward
Today, companies are already feeling the effects of climate change. Partnering with Ecolab, they can manage this growing risk, build resilient operations and safeguard sustainable growth in a changing world.  Doing so helps protect communities and the environment and it's what consumers, investors and other stakeholders expect and deserve.

What we are doing in our own operations
Ecolab has committed to reducing its own carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 and to net-zero by 2050. Since the turn of the century, we have set ever more ambitious climate goals for ourselves and have always met or exceeded them. Even though we make our greatest impact through our customers, we are determined to be at the forefront of climate action in our own operations.

We make our largest impact though our customers.

In 2019, we helped them save 28 trillion BTUs of energy and avoid 1.5 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

By 2030, our goal is to help customers become carbon neutral by emissions by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 4.5 million metric tons.
