Building a Strong Culture of Social Responsibility
At Xylem, we are united in our focus to be the leading global provider of efficient and sustainable water technologies and applications. We create extraordinary solutions to meet life’s most critical needs.
We believe in:
- Safeguarding our planet's climate, communities and resources
- Smart, sensible growth and development
- Accountability to our customers, employees, suppliers, investors and the communities in which we operate
Xylem is constantly involved in optimizing water access and quality and promoting responsible consumption so that communities across the globe can thrive — from the way we run our company to the way we manufacture our goods to our community involvement. As we work to “solve water,” we want all of our key stakeholders to feel proud about what we do — and how we do it. Below are just a few ways we help make a difference:
- Governance and Ethics
We expect our people, processes, policies and systems to operate fairly and conscientiously.
- Employees and the Workplace
We focus on workplace safety and training and development, and strive to make Xylem inclusive and welcoming.
By lowering emissions, cutting energy use, improving product design and reducing the use of hazardous materials, we act to preserve our environment.
- Community Involvement and Social Investment
Through Watermark, our corporate citizenship and social investment program, we employ all our assets – our people, our technology and our financial strength – to care for our communities, help people in need and make a sustainable mark in the world.
- Product Stewardship and Supply Chain
Xylem takes responsibility for the safety and environmental impact of each product through its full life cycle.
