“Sustainability is not an initiative, but instead is core to the products we create and the customers we serve,” said John L. Stauch, Pentair President and CEO. “From the development of our award-winning water technologies to our operational infrastructure, workplace culture of giving, and community impact, we are committed to creating a company that is a better performer, a better place to work and more relevant in our communities around the world.”

Featured within the report are success stories demonstrating Pentair’s contributions as a responsible corporate citizen with its customers and community partners. Highlights include:

  • Achieved its fifth consecutive Energy Star Partner of the Year Award for promoting wise and sustainable energy use with its industry-leading pool pumps.
  • Collaborated with Switzerland-based Climeworks to develop innovative technology that delivers food-grade quality carbon dioxide (CO2) without adding any CO2 footprint.
  • Advanced its Project Safewater philanthropic efforts to transform the way safer water is delivered to people in need around the world, with strategic initiatives in India, Africa and Central America.

Additionally, the report highlights initiatives the company is taking to reduce the environmental impact of its own operations. From 2017 to 2018, Pentair reduced its own municipal water withdrawals at its plants by 4.1 million gallons. Additionally, the company adopted a new, more ambitious Zero Waste model to measure waste reduction and materials use at its own facilities, diverting 62.5 million pounds of waste by reusing and recycling material.

On April 30, 2018, Pentair completed the separation of its Electrical business from the rest of Pentair, which was effected by the transfer of the Electrical business from Pentair to nVent Electric plc.

The 2018 Pentair Corporate Responsibility Report reflects initiatives and data only related to the Pentair Water business; which means that, data related to the former Electrical business for January 1 – April 30, 2018 is generally excluded from the report.
