Sustainability

Creating Sustainable Solutions with a Global Impact

Our company is dedicated to accelerating the environmental sustainability of customers’ operations in multiple industries. We understand the importance of being a responsible corporate citizen and believe our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) program provides us with a strategic roadmap to become a more sustainable and resilient business.

In 2020, we released our inaugural ESG report describing our ESG efforts and performance for our fiscal year 2019 from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Further development of our ESG program will allow us to not only better measure our successes, but also enhance our ability to identify relevant risks and opportunities for our business. Going forward, our ESG program will continue to serve as a guidepost for our ongoing commitment to ESG issues, sustainability, ethical operations, and the people that make up our business.

2019 Highlights

89% of our total product revenue came from renewable energy and energy efficiency-related products

100% of waste metal from Energy Recovery’s operations is recycled

12.4 million metric tons of carbon emissions were avoided thanks to our PX Pressure Exchangers, equivalent to removing more than 2.5 million passenger vehicles from the road

Minimizing our environmental impact

Not only do we design and manufacture solutions that make industrial processes more efficient and sustainable, but we turn the microscope on ourselves. At Energy Recovery, we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our operations.

Building community partnerships for a more sustainable future

Just as our company is dedicated to delivering efficient and sustainable products to our customers, we are committed to supporting the local and global communities where our employees live and work with that same spirit. Our aim is to lead by example and empower our partners who share this purpose.
