Our ecosystem of products and solutions delivers value to our customers while also helping them achieve their sustainability goals, done in a way where we also positively impact the environment.”
Zurn Water Solutions will continue to expand upon and leverage the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact across its ESG strategies, policies, and procedures to continue a culture of integrity while promoting long-term sustainability.
In addition to the UN Global Compact principles, Zurn Water Solutions has made sustainably inspired commitments to:
- Promote environmental stewardship for our customers and the planet
- Enhance the overall health, safety, and welfare of our associates
- Invest in people and create an inclusive work environment
- Support the communities in which Zurn Water Solutions operates
Participation in the UN Global Compact further strengthens Zurn Water Solutions’ ongoing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, which is overseen by the ESG Committee of the Board of Directors.
