Giving to our communities has long been an important part of Ecolab’s goal of helping to make the world a better place. As such, we go beyond providing industry-leading sustainability products and services for our customers, to support programs that help enrich the lives of our friends and neighbors in our communities. Our Community Giving Campaign is a prime example.
Ecolab has sponsored an employee giving campaign since 1985, both through donations and organized giving campaigns in the Twin Cities in Minnesota (our global headquarters), as well as 15 major office and manufacturing plant locations across the U.S.
Each year, Ecolab associates are given the opportunity to contribute to their communities through our workplace giving campaign. Through this voluntary programme, we encourage all our employees to consider the unique needs of their communities and to participate in the campaign in a way that works for each individual.
In our most recent Community Giving Campaign, Ecolab raised a total of $2.5 million, including a match from the Ecolab Foundation, for the United Way, Global Impact and other qualifying, employee-designated non-profit organizations.
