Elkay's Social Responsibility

 

 

Elkay is committed to protecting the environment and the communities where we work and live.

One of Elkay's six core values is "We are in Business Forever." Our conservation and sustainability efforts reflect Elkay's commitment to this principle and our concern for a better tomorrow.

To demonstrate our sustainability commitment, Elkay has embarked on a Corporate Social Responsibility Reporting journey. You can access our first Corporate Responsibility Report (2015/2017) to the right. We'd love to hear what you think of it – send us an email at corpcomm@elkay.com.
