Always leave a place better than you found it
At USALCO, this saying inspires us and guides our approach to corporate sustainability. We believe that the environment is a gift and every company has an important role to play in the creation of a more sustainable, lower-impact economy.
We commit to putting safety above all
Above all else, we prioritize the safety of our people, our customers, and our communities. USALCO operates on the belief that every person has the right to a safe workplace and that all accidents can be prevented. This program is designed to guide our daily actions and it helps us make decisions that keep each team member safe.
Our Goal is Zero
Accidents and Zero
We take a deliberate approach to sustainability.
More than just a nice slogan, we have developed a systematic framework that clarifies our sustainability goals and keeps us focused on the progress we make. By being deliberate about our goals and tracking our progress along the way, we are working to drive deeper engagement across our company and throughout our supply chains. Our framework encourages us to carefully evaluate every facility, product and workflow in our company – from raw material usage through production, delivery and consumption. Our manufacturing, administrative and distribution teams also work to reduce their energy usage and streamline their processes as much as possible.
Continually monitor our impact.
We focus on those areas where we can make the biggest impact. So naturally, as a leader in the water treatment industry, we are fixated on developing products and systems that help our customers better protect their natural water resources. With these goals in place, we continually measure against the following metrics to understand our impact and areas where we might do better.
We look for opportunities to make a positive impact.
Increase the amount of water that treated in the United States Reduce sludge waste generated at water treatment facilities Reduce waste, energy usage and transportation impact across USALCO
