These values lie at the heart of our culture.  They were crafted many years ago by thoughtful leaders – They were crafted many years ago by thoughtful leaders – deeply committed to doing the right thing. Today, they remain the cornerstone of the business – Today they remain the cornerstone of the business an enterprise capable of "being in business forever".  Employees review and acknowledge our Code of Conduct  l d k l d d f d on a regular basis. Acknowledging the Code, we commit to doing  business in compliance with all legal requirements and the highest  p g q g possible standards of integrity and ethical conduct. Employees are  given insights and an ethical framework to make informed decisions.  Elkays Code of Conduct leads naturally to best business practices  that govern how Elkay manages complex issues  in the countries where we do business.

  • because about our Planet. When it comes to measuring environmental practices, one common method  is to ask whether a company complies with all environmental regulations  governing their industry. While compliance is considered by some a  i h i i d Whil li i id d b low threshold, voluntary compliance and operating well within state standards  remains an objective way to assess a companys environmental performance.  We pride ourselves in our clean operations  that stay within the regulatory standards  wherever we operate.  We achieve this by ensuring our environmental, safety, risk and regulatory  teams are current on the latest regulations, and empowered to change  h l l i d d h our operations based on new or emerging standards  and best practices in our industries.  POLLUTION PREVENTION  AND MINIMIZING ENVIRONMENTAL HARM.  We strive to improve operations and lessen our environmental impact,  embracing new methods to eliminate and reduce emissions  while minimizing waste & operating costs.  while minimizing waste & operating costs SUSTAINABLE USE AND DISPOSAL  OF MANUFACTURING WASTE  OF MANUFACTURING WASTE Manufacturing operations create waste. While Elkay is no exception, we’re  committed to eliminating waste at the source, and finding creative ways to  ensure operating by‐products do not wind up in landfills. Raw materials not  fully utilized in manufacturing are recycled. Finished goods not deemed  suitable for shipment to customers due to minor blemishes in the finish, etc.  suitable for shipment to customers due to minor blemishes in the finish, etc. are donated to local charities. Equipment at the end of its lifecycle is sold to  local dealers to be refurbished, repurposed or recycled.  PRODUCTS THAT PROTECT OUR PLANET Products like Elkays EZH2O helps reduce the number of plastic water bottles  that go into landfills. Every EZH2O installed in a school, gym, park,  h l df ll ll d h l k or public building has an exponential impact on our planet, eliminating  thousands of plastic water bottles from the waste stream.  GREEN OFFICE PRACTICES From recycling to efficient lighting, we seek to reduce costs  and lower our impact on the planet. 
  • about our Communities. abo t o r Comm nities VOLUNTEER TIME OFF Elkay employees receive 2 paid days off per year to volunteer  locally. While up to 8 hours can be spent at a qualifying charity of  the employee s choice, the second day off should be at a  the employee’s choice the second day off should be at a company‐sponsored event. In addition to benefiting the  community and the charity, company‐sponsored volunteer events  provide an enjoyable team‐building experience.  CHARITABLE GIVING Employees can participate in the ELKAYcares charitable giving  program. Through this company‐matched, payroll‐deducted  giving campaign, employees donate to a wide array of charities  giving campaign employees donate to a wide array of charitiesbecause focused on health, environmental protection, animal welfare,  clean water, affordable housing, veterans issues, and supporting  those in need. 
  • because about the Future. "We are in business forever" is often  considered the most important of  p f Elkays values. It serves as a litmus  test for new strategies, policies and  practices. Will pursuing this idea help  Elkay achieve our vision of being in  business forever? If the answer is no,  f f , more often than not, the proposed  direction is not pursued.  This value requires Elkays leaders to  take planning for the long term very  seriously. Whether adjusting our  business strategies and structure to  align with our near‐term mission and  align with our near‐term mission and long‐term vision, ensuring that our  culture empowers our people,  inspiring innovative and problem‐ solving to take us in the direction we  need to go, or putting board members  need to go or putting board members and succession plans in place to  ensure our longevity, stability and well  being, the company values, vision and  mission are never out of sight.
