Report details the progress of Xylem's five-year sustainability goals

Xylem has released its 2015 sustainability report, which outlines the company’s progress in its efforts to preserve water resources.

“Xylem actively addresses the inherent linkages between water, climate and sustainability,” said Patrick Decker, president and CEO of Xylem. “We are committed to ensuring that our sustainability initiatives support our overarching business strategy and that we foster a culture that reflects this commitment. Our sustainability framework encompasses four key areas—our product offerings, operations, external engagement, and organization and culture—and allows us to effectively and seamlessly integrate sustainability into our core business operations.”

In the report, the company details progress against its five-year sustainability goals, which include driving improvements in energy efficiency of specific product lines, as well as reducing water use by 25% and greenhouse gas emission intensity by 20%. In addition, Xylem aims to bolster the impact of Xylem Watermark, the company’s corporate citizenship program, through increased employee involvement and donations. 

Xylem’s sustainability efforts are also reflected in the company’s recent report "Powering the Wastewater Renaissance," which found that the adoption of currently available, high-efficiency technologies can reduce electricity-related greenhouse gas emissions from the global wastewater sector by up to 50%. Furthermore, the report showed that since an upgraded wastewater sector would consume less energy, 95% of these emissions reductions would either pay for themselves or even result in savings that could be channeled into additional sustainable upgrades.
