Our Impacts That Matter criteria and packaging principles help ensure that Ecolab products are designed with sustainability in mind while not compromising on safety and performance. Ecolab is a leader in the industry in developing new, effective solutions that help our customers drive operational efficiency, product quality, safety and compliance while minimizing environmental impact.
Sustainable Design Principles
We work to integrate safety and sustainability considerations into the product development process, from our operations to developing programs for our customers to instructions for use. Everyone at Ecolab shares this responsibility, and the foundations of sustainable design are embedded into our Research and Development processes.
Ecolab is committed to ensuring that our products and packaging advance safety and sustainability. We are committed to continuously improving our designs to help minimize waste and safely deliver best-in-class experiences for our customers.
By 2030, our goal is to have moved to reusable or readily recyclable packaging for non-regulated products in our portfolio. Our commitment to excellence in packaging design is supported by a global team of more than 50 packaging professionals, including engineers, materials scientists, analysts and technicians.
