Nov 6, 2013 8:30 AM ET

Germs and disease threaten every environment around the world. Ecolab delivers solutions that prevent infection and protect the places where we eat, sleep, work, play and heal.

Ecolab’s approach to creating healthy environments encompasses a broad range of cleaning and sanitizing solutions, as well as protocols, training and tools. Microbiologists, chemists, entomologists — supported by chemical, electrical, mechanical and packaging engineers — work with our customers to identify real-world needs and innovate to develop the right solutions.

We worked closely with clinical experts to develop our EnCompass Environmental Hygiene Program. EnCompass provides healthcare facilities with a complete program designed to improve cleaning outcomes and help reduce the risk of  infections through accurate dispensing, standardized procedures, training, objective measurement and real-time reporting.

Details of the positive impact Ecolab makes through our customers and  in our own operations can be found in our 2012 Sustainability Report.
