Environmental Policy

Purpose

POOLCORP fosters an unwavering commitment to reducing our environmental impact throughout all phases of our business operations. POOLCORP and its subsidiaries strive to implement and administer an environmental policy that holds pollution prevention, resource conservation, and legal compliance at the forefront of all activities. We recognize the need for a shared obligation with our manufacturers across all stages of the supply chain to unify our efforts toward continued environmental integrity. We expect all of our suppliers to abide by the principles of this policy.

Environmental Sustainability

Our environmental aspirations are defined in the following primary areas:

  • Sustainable Sourcing: POOLCORP is committed to sourcing its products from environmentally conscious suppliers. We highly encourage all companies involved in the lifecycle of our products to adhere to ISO 14000 environmental standards and all other relevant environmental legislation.
  • Climate Protection: As our company continues to expand, POOLCORP and our manufacturing partners strive to reduce carbon emissions throughout all phases of the supply chain. We seek to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions by introducing electric vehicles and equipment, implementing renewable energy, and enhancing energy efficiency.
  • Waste Mitigation: POOLCORP recognizes environmental management as a critical priority in all business undertakings. We strive to mitigate waste through the implementation of programs which promote recycling and sensible disposal of hazardous products. We manage our waste comprehensively and address all locations with an individual plan that focuses on locational framework and potential growth.
  • Performance Tracking and Reporting: We report environmental, social, and governance advancements on an annual basis. In addition to our annual corporate responsibility reporting, we utilize internal programs which preemptively track progress relating to our environmental objectives.
  • Employee Awareness: Employees of all levels are acquainted with the company’s environmental goals and progress as related to their role. We believe that well-defined duties, training, and engagement opportunities promote a culture of environmental distinction.
