We’re committed to making responsibility for environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership part of everything we do at Zurn Elkay Water Solutions. We’ve established governance structures that ensure strong ESG practices throughout our organization.
About our Board
The Zurn Elkay Water Solutions Board of Directors oversees company management on behalf of shareholders. They do this through five committees:
Nominating and corporate governance
Environmental, social and governance (ESG)
The Nominating and Governance Committee reviews qualifications, performance and independence of existing Board members on an annual basis, as well as Board governance matters such as Board diversity.
The Board’s composition is reviewed annually as well, to ensure the right mix of skills, experience and background needed for the foreseeable future. The current Board member sector experience includes building and manufacturing, engineering, accounting, hospitals, private equity, data and IT.
Overseeing our ESG efforts
In keeping with our commitment to sustainability, the Board’s ESG Committee oversees the company’s ESG-related efforts, including creating ESG initiatives, plans and policies; performance on ESG initiatives; and response to stockholder proposals on ESG matters and other significant ESG-related stakeholder concerns.
Matters considered ESG-related include:
Associate health and safety
Ethical and sustainable sourcing
Product safety and eco-friendly design
Supplier conduct and diversity
Diversity and inclusion in employment
Volunteerism and corporate giving
The role of Zurn Elkay executives
With the Board’s oversight, Zurn Elkay executives manage ESG-related matters through the ESG Internal Steering Committee, which is made up of a cross-functional group of function heads.
This committee and senior business leaders are responsible for critical aspects of our sustainability initiatives, performance and long-term success, with a particular focus on governance and ethics, product quality and safety, supply chain, environmental, health and safety, and human capital.
