Giving Programmes

We are passionate about supporting the communities where our employees live and work--reaching out to those in need and seeking to enhance the well-being of people and communities.

The Ecolab Foundation has donated nearly $131 million since its inception in 1986. We focus on educational, cultural, environmental and community development programmes that are good for business and good for society.

Ecolab Foundation Mission: “Ecolab’s culture reflects the company’s commitment to society. Ecolab promotes the well-being of its employees, customers and shareholders by contributing to the quality of life in the communities in which it operates, supporting organizations and programmes that strengthen and enrich the community, especially in the areas of youth and education, civic and community development, arts and culture, environment and conservation and community-based giving. To the extent possible, contributions are leveraged with Ecolab employee involvement, thereby maximising the company’s contributions.”
