Ecolab Inc., St. Paul, MN, recently made a three-year and $2 million commitment through the Ecolab Foundation The Nature Conservancy in support of The Nature Conservancy’s initiative: “Securing and Restoring Water Sources Around the Globe.” This three-year commitment to The Nature Conservancy expands upon Ecolab’s 25 years of support to the organization’s work in Minnesota and, for the first time, focuses on water conservation globally, with initial projects in China and Mexico, according to a news release.  

“Every day, as we work to help our global customers more effectively manage water use, we see the increasing need to protect and conserve this limited resource to ensure its availability for future generations,” said Douglas M. Baker Jr., Ecolab chairman and chief executive officer. “In many areas, water shortages already threaten quality of life, the health of communities and the ability to conduct business. The Nature Conservancy is doing valuable work in many of these regions and we are committed to supporting these efforts.” 

This water stewardship is part of Ecolab’s newly launched Solutions for Life program. That program enhances the company’s work to conserve water and improve hygiene around the world through new partnerships, global philanthropy and employee volunteerism. For more details, click here.
