We believe that sustainable activities inspire innovation and contribute to operational excellence, so we try to integrate sustainable thinking and practice into our strategy, operations and products.
Our commitment to sustainability is centered on advancing scientific progress to enhance human health and well-being which is at the core of what our products and services achieve, and it’s at the center of how we operate around the world. It drives us to measure, manage and commit to reductions in our environmental footprint. It guides us to give back to the communities where we live and work. And it serves as the center for how we grow and develop our high-quality workforce.
As the industry leader in specialty measurement, we share a common mission with our customers to improve people’s lives around the world, and our sustainability efforts are just some of the ways we achieve this mission.
In addition to having 2025 sustainability goals, we currently report our progress using the GRI framework. In 2021 we will continue to advance our reporting by adding SASB reporting.
To accelerate progress on our sustainability journey, Waters has committed to the following 2025 Waters Sustainability Goals.
We will systematically implement measurable, sustainable practices in how we innovate, develop and deliver our products.
We will improve our operations performance by decreasing environmental impact and increasing natural resource efficiency.
We will advance a product and supply chain sustainability program that identifies opportunities to improve our products' impact across engineering, procurement, and operations.
We continue to focus on the employees we have today – and the employees we will need tomorrow – through programs and initiatives that drive diversity, inclusion and development.
We will foster an attitude of awareness, preparedness, and responsiveness across our workplace and throughout our supply chain.
