The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Sloan with a 2022 WaterSense Excellence Award for helping people save water. In recognition of its commitment to promoting WaterSense and water efficiency in 2021, Sloan was honored during the WaterSmart Innovations (WSI) Conference and Exposition Oct. 6 in Las Vegas along with 33 other awardees - utilities, manufacturers, builders, retailers, and other organizations that partner with WaterSense to promote water-efficient products, homes, and programs.
WaterSense, a voluntary partnership program sponsored by EPA, is both a label for water-efficient products, programs, and homes and a resource for helping consumers learn ways to save water. Since 2006, more than 2,100 WaterSense partners and over 40,000 models of certified water-efficient plumbing and irrigation products have helped consumers and businesses save 6.4 trillion gallons of water—enough water to supply all households in the United States with water for eight months. In addition to water savings, WaterSense has helped reduce the amount of energy needed to pump, treat, and heat water by 754 billion kilowatt hours and helped consumers save $135 billion in water and energy bills. These savings also helped prevent 288 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, which is equivalent to planting 4.8 billion trees.
“Throughout 2021, our award-winning partners helped people protect this precious resource by promoting WaterSense labeled products and water-efficient behaviors,” said Veronica Blette, Chief, WaterSense Branch. “Saving water is particularly critical in areas impacted by drought but is also a path to helping consumers stretch dollars by reducing their water and energy bills.”
WaterSense honored Sloan as a 2022 Excellence Award winner for promoting WaterSense labeled products in the marketplace. As the only manufacturer of exclusively commercial products, Sloan’s award was distinguished for its extensive offerings of WaterSense labeled flushometers, toilets, urinals, commercial showerheads, and faucets.
“For over a century, Sloan has provided safe, reliable, water-efficient products for the commercial marketplace,” said Parthiv Amin, Sloan Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “Water Connects Us is more than just our tagline. Sloan understands the dynamic relationship between the world’s water management systems and its ecosystems. The WaterSense Award for Excellence highlights our commitment to protecting the earth’s most vital natural resource: water.”
