LONDON - April 12, 2017 - Pentair (PNR), a global company dedicated to building a safer, more sustainable world, announces the release of its 2016 Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report.
"Pentair is a company built on a strong foundation of Win Right values, which grounds our role as a responsible corporate citizen," said Randall J. Hogan, Pentair Chairman and CEO. "In 2016, we renewed and continued to formalize our commitment to citizenship and sustainability, and this report is an important step in sharing our progress with our stakeholders."
Based on the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) G4 Guidelines, the report is organized around Pentair`s CR material issues including sustainable products and solutions, operational excellence, employee engagement, community involvement and philanthropic giving, and governance.
In the report, Pentair highlights examples of how the company is delivering industry-leading products, services and solutions to help customers make the best use of the resources they rely on most. For instance, 65 percent of Pentair`s solutions from its Water segment support water efficiency, helping to reduce, reuse or recover water, directly or indirectly. Seventy-five percent of Pentair solutions support energy efficiency, by requiring less energy to operate, or by aiding broader systems to operate more efficiently.
Additionally, the report highlights initiatives the company is taking to reduce the environmental impact of its own operations, including the company`s annual "Environmental Treasure Hunt" during which site-level teams look for creative ways to drive efficiencies in energy and water use, as well as to reduce waste and emissions. In 2016, Pentair implemented 55 employee solutions, generating $714,000 in resource efficiency savings.
