Since 1937, Zep has been creating value for customers by offering a comprehensive selection of top quality industrial and janitorial cleaning products, delivered with unique chemistry formulations, superior service, and unmatched technical support. In 2020, Zep launched Vision 2025 — a roadmap designed to unite our employees around our company’s common purpose and guide our priorities for the future. With Vision 2025 as our true north, our goal is to give our customers, employees and communities a clear understanding of what we value as a company.
To determine the initial areas of focus, Zep conducted a materiality assessment to reveal how we could make the most significant impact early on. The assessment is based on standards from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), a world-wide organization dedicated to increasing ESG transparency with the most widely used standards for sustainability reporting.
