Through our Community Relations Department, Ecolab associates, past and present, are encouraged to become involved in programmes that focus on:
Employees can volunteer in a number of ways such as packing and sorting items at food shelves, team onsite kit builds assembling supplies for individuals in need, mentoring youth on STEM-related topics and volunteering with global partners such as Project WET and Habitat for Humanity.
In 2020, Ecolab employees volunteered more than 74,700 hours. This includes employees' community-based volunteering that qualified for matching funds through our Dollars for Doers and Board Leadership volunteer grant programmes, as well as teams of Ecolab employees in 26 countries who participated in the Ecolab Foundation's Global Team Volunteer Programme. This programme encourages employees to contribute their time and talent with select partners in their communities in addition to financial support to non-profit organizations.
