Exponential Return on Investment

Quantified Results for Performance, Efficiency and Impact

Ecolab helps customers achieve ambitious business goals and environmental targets—especially in water conservation. With an unparalleled combination of science and service, we deliver exponential outcomes that benefit customers and communities. Fundamental to our approach is an understanding that real and lasting change is accelerated when economic and environmental benefits align with improved performance, operational efficiency and sustainable impact.

Delivering Exponential Value

We call it eROI: The exponential value of improved performance, operational efficiency and sustainable impact

Measurement is a critical component of our process to deliver exponential outcomes. Using our proprietary eROISM value approach, we measure our impact and quantify customers' return on investment.

We start with what matters most to our customers – performance – and link performance outcomes to environmental and social metrics and cost savings to demonstrate the triple-bottom-line benefits of sustainability.

Delivering on Our eROI Promise

Our eROISM value approach measures what matters most to our customers:

  • Improved Performance: We help customers achieve system assurance and ensure clean, safe and healthy environments. We make sure these outcomes increase over time.
  • Operational Efficiency: We identify ways to improve efficiency and outcomes to ultimately reduce total cost of operations.
  • Sustainable Impact: We helps customers minimize impact on the environment to reach their sustainability goals. We measure the sustainable impact of our solutions against a set of sustainability indicators that align with customer key business drivers across a diverse set of industries.

Through eROI outcomes, we quantify and communicate the exponential value of our solutions to customers and help customers measure progress toward their internal goals.

Simply put, eROI is the outcome of doing business with us.
