THE STATUS QUO
At Tennant Company, our vision is to lead the global industry in sustainable cleaning innovation that empowers our customers to create a cleaner, safer and healthier world. Our steadfastness to industry-leading innovation is the essence of our business and, increasingly, our commitment to sustainability is inextricably linked to everything we do—from new product development to community investment. This year’s Corporate Sustainability Report takes stock of the progress we made in 2012.
As you will read in this report, Tennant’s commitment to sustainability is strong and yielding measurable results. We lead the industry in developing products that improve our customers’ productivity while delivering high performance cleaning with fewer negative environmental impacts. Our portfolio of innovative, differentiated, sustainable offerings has grown to include ec-H2O™ technology, the Orbio 5000-Sc®, re-formulated floor coatings and other products that help customers reduce their environmental impact.
I am very proud of the work we’ve done so far on the sustainability front. I am honored to be playing a central role as we accelerate our sustainability journey. Working together with Tennant’s dedicated employees around the world, I am confident that we will continue to lead the industry in sustainable cleaning innovation.
