Diversity and Inclusion

At Ecolab, we believe the best teams are diverse and inclusive. Creating workplaces where every associate can grow and thrive is central to our strategic growth priorities and overarching focus on attracting, retaining and growing talent.

We are proud of the progress we have made in ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace. Building on momentum created by our signing of the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity and Inclusion in 2017 and the formation of our Executive D&I Council – charged with developing and overseeing our diversity and inclusion strategy – we made headway with programs and initiatives that educated associates, demonstrated thought leadership and raised awareness of our commitment.

Gender EQuality Index

Recent legislation in France requires companies with more than 50 employees to publish a gender equality index score on a scale of 100, calculated based on five criteria. 

The index (l’Index Egalité Femmes-Hommes) measures different indicators around professional equality: gap in remuneration, gap in the proportion of women and men receiving an augmentation, gap in the proportion of women and men promoted, the systematic augmentation of women during maternity leave, the number of women among the highest paid in the company. 

Companies with scores below a threshold of 75 out of 100 are required to define and put into place corrective measures, within three years.

Here are the scores for 2019 :

  • Ecolab SNC : 84/100
  • Ecolab Pest France : 92/100
  • Anios : 90/100
  • Nalco : 83/100
  • Ecolab Production : 87/100
