2011 Annual Report

Our SmartLife™ Approach

Our SmartLife™ approach ensures that we operate in an ethical and responsible manner, embrace inclusion and diversity, manage our operations and supply chain safely and efficiently, and develop products that will reduce waste and minimize the use of resources. The addition of Diversey strengthens our commitment, as its leadership in sustainable practices in the global cleaning and sanitation marketplace reinforces our goals and enhances our efforts. Today, our Sustainability Advisory Team, consisting of executives representing different regions and functions, ensures that we balance short- and long-term interests while integrating economic, environmental and social considerations in our decision making each day.

SmartLife™ Design & Insights

Our solutions are designed to help customers improve their productivity and utilize their workforce and resources more efficiently to reduce their total costs. We also help customers understand the environmental impact of their products, operations and supply chains through the insights of our life cycle, water and energy-use assessments which allows them to make more informed decisions and improve the profile of their supply chain. And, our investment in this area has been noticed as we were recognized as a top 10 global innovator and socially responsible leader by Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” in 2011.

Our SmartLife™ commitment emphasizes that we make a difference in our communities worldwide.
