Our Commitment to Sustainability
At Envirogen, our aim is to become the partner of choice and the leading source of water, wastewater, and process filtration expertise in the applications that we focus upon. Our core offering is water treatment – efficient ways of reducing water wastage, water usage – to ensure we all operate more sustainably for the benefit of the world we live in.
We recognise that sustainable environmental practices like waste minimisation, energy conservation and the protection of water resources are all part of an efficient, cost-effective production operation. Waste recycling, water reclamation and reuse, and the use of renewable energy sources are quickly becoming the standard in most industries to both reduce the environmental impact of their facilities and to improve their own bottom line. Stricter discharge limits and increasing energy costs are forcing many to look for new solutions to old problems. Envirogen offers state-of-the-art technologies to assist industries in their efforts to grow while reducing the costs of doing business. Through this focus, we are fully committed to our customer’s success and a sustainable tomorrow.
Internally, we strive to conserve natural resources through innovative processes and continuous improvement methodologies with the goal of reducing, reusing, recycling, and identifying safer material substitutes or alternatives for our operations. We will continue to invest in energy conservation, and continue to reduce our emissions over time.
Our commitment to the communities we work in
We often live in the communities in which we work, thus being a good corporate citizen and a contributing member of the community is important to us. We promote positive and proactive interactions with our customers, our communities and our neighbourhood groups.
We want to make a positive difference in our communities, wherever we manufacture and sell our products. This means being a good corporate citizen, addressing local needs, working with local partners and supporting the active involvement of our employees.
All our global offices and brands have the flexibility to support causes that are most relevant to them.
To conclude, we are committed to continually improving our EHS standards, culture and performance to protect the environment around us.
