Responding to shareholder proposals on ESG matters and other significant ESG-related stakeholder concerns
Employee health and safety
Ethical and sustainable sourcing

Our internal ESG Steering Committee includes Zurn Elkay executives responsible for implementing our ESG strategy on a day-to-day basis, with the following key focus areas:
Governance & Ethics

The cross-functional team of leaders uses their business expertise and deep knowledge of our sustainability commitments to create and refine our goals, improve our ESG strategies, establish effective policies and enhance reporting to stakeholders.
We strengthened this team in 2022 by adding our Head of Engineering as a committee member tasked with overseeing efforts to embed sustainability into our overall product development process. This dedicated product specialist will enhance the committee’s focus on product quality and safety and help us advance important projects such as our product lifecycle analysis.
