Ecolab Donates $1.2 Million To Disaster Relief Efforts

February 18, 2014

Sends cleaning, sanitizing and public health products around the world.

During 2013, Ecolab provided $1.2 million in in-kind product donations to support global disaster relief efforts. Working in partnership with non-profit organizations, the company quickly mobilized its needed cleaning, sanitizing and public health products for distribution to areas around the world impacted by natural disasters.

"Ecolab's 44,000 associates understand what it means to be a part of a community and work extremely well in mobilizing company products during times of need," said Kris Taylor, VP-community relations, Ecolab. "After last year's severe storms in the US and the devastating typhoon in the Philippines, Ecolab immediately worked with our non-profit partners to provide needed cleaning and sanitizing products for use during clean-up efforts. We viewed it as our obligation to provide our products to those who needed them most."

In response to the typhoon in the Philippines, Ecolab partnered with World Emergency Relief to provide over 36,000 cases of cleaning and sanitizing products, and more than 6,000 laundry bags that local relief centers used for assembling disaster response kits.

Kristy Scott, CEO, World Emergency Relief, commented, "World Emergency Relief has partnered with Ecolab for over 15 years. Our two organizations working together have helped so many people during life's most difficult times. The value of Ecolab's spirit of generosity far outweighs the value of the products it donates. It is an honor to work with such a trusted and community-minded company."
