News Oct 25, 2012
For this report, Waters has applied the current G3 version of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines — the world’s leading voluntary standard on corporate sustainability reporting.
The main goal of the GRI, a world-wide nonprofit organization, is to create a framework for systematic and transparent sustainability reporting by corporations. Waters Corporation reported against the GRI's key performance indicators in the areas of products, environmental management, customers, employees and corporate governance.
“We take great pride in our commitment to governance and sound management practices to minimize environmental impact and maximize our engagement with our communities,” said Douglas Berthiaume Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We share our customers’ passions to care for, feed, nurture, and protect the citizens of the world.”
Highlights from Waters’ 2012 Sustainability Report include:
• Recipient of a 2011 MassSavers Business Award for significant reduction in energy used, to ensure that the air leaving Waters’ Taunton Production Facility meets and exceeds all applicable air quality standards.
• Reduced energy consumption from heating oil by 25% from 2010 to 2011.
