Our strategy to address economic, social and environmental topics starts at the top with our Board of Directors, and is implemented throughout the company with all employees helping to advance our sustainability practices and impact.
The Xylem Board of Directors has primary responsibility for overall risk and strategy oversight for the company, which includes areas that impact Xylem’s sustainability efforts. The Board has delegated responsibility for direct oversight of the company’s sustainability program to the Board’s Nominating and Governance Committee, except for our offerings-related strategies, which are reviewed by the Finance, Innovation & Technology Committee. The Nominating and Governance Committee regularly receives updates on sustainability from management and provides updates to the full Board of Directors.
Our senior leadership team members, under the direction of our President and CEO Patrick Decker, lead growth centers, commercial teams and functional areas with the intent of building an enduring and successful company. Increasingly, these areas are better integrating sustainability into their strategies to accelerate innovation, sell our products and services, and grow our business. Ultimately, our growth strategies are designed to position Xylem as a leader in the global water technology space.
