Sloan has achieved certification to the Alliance for Water Stewardship Standard at its Franklin Park, Illinois headquarters.
A globally applicable framework for major water users to understand their water use and impacts, AWS certification enables organizations to further work collaboratively and transparently for sustainable water management. As a global manufacturer of water-efficient commercial restroom products, Sloan’s Franklin Park location innovates and develops sustainable plumbing fixtures each day.
The AWS Standard asks water-using sites to address water challenges and onsite risks to address these issues in a way that progressively moves them to best practices in terms of the five outcomes of good water stewardship:
- Good water governance
- Sustainable water balance
- Good water quality status
- Important water-related areas
- Safe water, sanitation and hygiene for all
Sloan touch-free products—from faucets and flushometers to sinks, soap dispensers and hand dryers—are developed with sustainability and hygiene in mind to promote health and wellness in commercial restrooms of all types.
Sloan’s high-efficiency flushometers can cut down a building’s water use by 30%, while its commitment to product transparency through Environmental Product Declarations and Health Product Declarations, as well as resources like its Green Product Finder and Sustainability Calculator, promote water sustainability efforts.
