Announces initial environmental, social and governance (ESG) including reducing Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 50% by 2035.
Mueller Water Products has released its second environmental, social and governance (ESG) report highlighting progress on its ESG strategy, initiatives, performance, targets, and goals to drive improvements that benefit all stakeholders.
Scott Hall, president and CEO of Mueller Water Products, commented: “In the face of many challenges, our achievements in 2021 demonstrate our determination to become a technology enabled solutions provider to water companies and utilities in delivering life’s most precious resource. This part year we conducted our first ESG materiality assessment, identifying the most important ESG priorities to our stakeholders. With our new brass foundry, which is scheduled to complete construction in early 2023, we will be pouring a new lead-free copper alloy, which will be a noteworthy advancement in sustainability for our customers and end users.
“We are excited about establishing long-term environmental goals for waste disposal and greenhouse gas emissions. With our ESG goals aligned with our business strategies, I am confident that we will contribute to creating a safer environment and a more sustainable future.”
Additionally, the company has planned to execute against new goals including setting science-based targets by 2023 using Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) methodology, continuing to develop products that support water delivery and reduce water waste, and enhancing its sustainable practices throughout the supply chain to address climate change.
