Environmental stewardship entails managing and protecting resources that need to be cared for and preserved, including shared assets such as water. Our investments in people and nature address national challenges that threaten vital natural resources, so we can help ensure a healthy and sustainable future for all. Auto-Chlor is always looking for ways to improve the use of water resources within our operations and within the watersheds in which we operate. Our commitment extends to the solutions we deliver to our customers and to the partnerships we have formed to support responsible use of the world’s limited freshwater resources.
We understand the importance of the food-energy-water nexus and always consider the impact of water in our innovation process and in the products and services that we provide to help our customers implement their own water stewardship strategies.
On November 19, 2008, EPA’s Design for Environment (DfE) Program recognized its newly appointed Safer Detergent Stewardship Initiative (SDSI) Champions and Partners. Through (SDSI), EPA’s Design for the Environment Program recognizes environmental leaders who voluntarily commit to the use of safer surfactants. Safer surfactants are surfactants that break down quickly to non-polluting compounds and help protect aquatic life in both fresh and salt water. Nonylphenol ethoxylates, commonly referred to as NPEs, are an example of a surfactant class that does not meet the definition of a safer surfactant.
Auto-Chlor System was recognized as SDSI Champion for having achieved the following:
- Demonstrated the use of only safer surfactants in products
- Documented a strategy for ensuring that going forward only safer surfactants are used in products
