Sustainability

Our approach to sustainability is rooted in our purpose of delivering meaningful improvements to the well-being of our stakeholders, communities, and the environment. We have and will continue to implement measures to use safer and more sustainable ingredients, reduce packaging and production waste, conserve water and energy, and support social and economic growth within our organization and communities.

Our Focus Areas

Product Stewardship

We elevate our products by using safer, gentler ingredients and more sustainable packaging components and production processes 

Manufacturing Footprint

We utilize equipment and implement processes that reduce our water usage, lower waste water output and conserve energy in our facilities 

Employees & Communities

We take pride in our service, support and commitment to our employees and communities

Packaging Policy

Across our commercial and consumer product portfolios, our packaging elevates users' experiences with our products. But PurposeBuilt Brands' packaging does not start or end at the point of use; we choicefully manage our packaging material streams to minimize waste and reduce the environmental impact from production to disposal.

Chemical & Ingredient Policy

With cleaners designed for precise purposes and specific surfaces, selecting the appropriate chemicals is of critical importance to PurposeBuilt Brands. Our robust approach to product formulation balances efficacy, consumer health & safety, and environmental impact.

Safer Choice Partner of the Year

In 2020 and 2021, PurposeBuilt Brands was recognized by the EPA as a Safer Choice Partner of the Year.

This recognition reflects our company-wide commitment to sustainability. Throughout our organization - whether in Marketing, R&D, Manufacturing, or Sourcing - we continually look for ways to improve our products and processes for the well-being of consumers and the environment.
