Environmental Sustainability

At EnPro Industries we demonstrate our Core Values of Safety, Excellence and Respect through our environmental sustainability efforts. Whenever possible, our operations strive to go beyond compliance to conserve and recycle resources, protect our natural environment, and prevent pollution and other public safety risks. Compliance with national, state and local environmental laws and regulations at all operating facilities in the United States and around the world is our minimum acceptable standard of performance. We strive for world-class environmental stewardship and sustainability at all EnPro divisions because doing so is consistent with our core values and, by achieving these principles, we benefit from more efficient operations and higher-quality products.We are educating and motivating all colleagues to work together in an environmentally responsible manner, with measurable goals monitored at our more than 70 locations globally.

EnPro’s commitment to environmental sustainability is deeply embedded in our operations. Environmental management systems throughout our businesses are structured to measure our performance and seek continuous improvement. Although EnPro has greatly progressed in sustainable operations, more opportunities remain, and our talented teams are committed to finding and implementing them as we live our Core Values.

EnPro colleagues are focused on environmental conservation with the same spirit of innovation and continuous improvement that creates our leading-edge products. Across our global operations EnPro applies its strongest engineering capabilities to the challenges of eliminating waste, conserving resources and reducing environmental impacts.
