how we work
Sustainability at Veralto
Sustainability is woven deeply into the fabric of Veralto. Our people, our companies, and our innovations support our customers as they address global challenges including water scarcity, environmental resource sustainability, management of severe weather events, food and pharmaceutical security, and the impact of an aging workforce.
From ensuring clean drinking water to reducing packaging waste, we help customers protect precious resources and keep our global water and food supply safe.
Safeguarding the world’s water
Our water quality companies help ensure the availability of clean drinking water while enabling customers to reduce water and energy consumption and protect our waterways. We are trusted partners to municipalities and industry, helping to ensure the quality of the water supply and advance their sustainability objectives.
food and beverage
ChemTreat associates work alongside industrial customers to understand their water challenges and tailor chemical treatment plans and dosing protocols to help optimize customers’ water usage and maximize reuse; our solutions helped customers save over 80 billion gallons of water in 2022.
Trojan Technologies offers UV and membrane filtration systems for water disinfection and contaminant removal. Our systems treat and support the recycling of 12 trillion gallons of water annually and in turn help to improve access to clean water for more than 250 million people every day.
Safeguarding food, medicine, and essentials
In addition to helping mark and code food, medicine, and essentials to ensure traceability and authenticity, our Product Quality and Innovation companies help customers reduce packaging material consumption and waste, minimize environmental impact, and bring more sustainable packaging solutions to market faster.
Esko’s Cape Pack package design and pallet optimization software has helped one of the world’s largest producers of packaged goods eliminate the need for over 900,000 trucking miles annually, equating to the reduction of CO2 emissions by over 3.4 million pounds.

Videojet helped the confectionary division of a leading global food brand upgrade to next-generation printers optimized for marking on lighter, more sustainable film.
Our progress and strategy
We are deeply aware of our responsibility to our stakeholders and the opportunities to make a difference through our innovative products, our positive impact on the planet, and our people, as reflected in our purpose: Safeguarding the World’s Most Vital Resources™.
To prepare for our launch as a standalone company, we conducted a sustainability prioritization assessment to identify our stakeholders’ sustainability priorities and inform our sustainability strategy. Based on our findings from conversations with investors, interviews and surveys with associates, and discussions with sustainability leaders from our customers, we organized our sustainability strategy around the three pillars of Products, Planet, and People.
The Veralto Enterprise System is a powerful toolset to help us execute our sustainability strategy and drive continuous improvement across energy consumption, water use, and other key sustainability metrics.
We are actively evaluating opportunities to increase our impact through collective actions such as sustainability-focused partnerships, initiatives, industry alliances, and grant-making opportunities.
