It takes people, energy, water and many other resources to carry out our global mission. NSF is committed to identifying and acknowledging these impacts, assessing their scope and significance, and reducing them to the greatest extent possible.

We do this by working across three large domains of corporate social responsibility: environment, social and governance. In addition to our commitment to identify, acknowledge, assess and reduce issues in these domains, NSF is committed to weaving the following principles into every aspect of our business as we continue to develop and grow our corporate sustainability activities:

  • Transparency and openness
  • Stakeholder involvement
  • Community investment
  • Diversity, equity, fairness and respect
  • Deliberate, meaningful and verifiable progress on corporate commitments
  • Clear, accurate and regular reporting of progress
