Sustainability is a way of thinking about your business and about the world – and considering what's best for both with the same level of commitment. At Xylem, we believe in:
• Safeguarding our planet's environment and resources
• Smart, sensible growth and development
• Accountability to our customers, employees, suppliers, investors and the communities in which we operate
In September 2012, Xylem was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes. This is a major acknowledgment of all of the work we’ve done to advance sustainable business practices and report transparently our progress over time.
The fact that we are a water technology business adds urgency to our mission. There's a direct line of sight from our work to the sustainable health of our planet. People around the globe depend on us to create extraordinary solutions to meet life's most critical water needs. Xylem optimizes water access and quality, and we promote responsible consumption so that communities across the globe can thrive.
As we work to "solve water," we want all our key stakeholders – employees, customers, product users, investors, suppliers and communities – to feel proud about what we do and how we do it. This site outlines the important ways we are committed to sustainability.
