Protecting the Future

EPS puts sustainability first in all our activities and processes. We strive to develop cleaner technologies and solutions which reduce the environmental impact of not just ourselves but of our customers as well.

Sustainability Report 2021

After 53 years in business, we are proud to release our first Sustainability Report.

Reflecting on our journey over 5 decades and our increasing responsibilities to our stakeholders over that time, it was wonderful to see that, in fact, sustainability is something that has been at the core of our company since the 1970’s.

This report summarises our journey from 1968 to 2021, outlining our future path as we continue Rethinking Water; pushing towards reducing our carbon consumption; implementing circular economy principles.

This is an annual commitment from the business to update our stakeholders on our progress and to underline our growing commitment to sustainable practices. We are conscious of the legacy we leave behind us, as we deliver for our people, customers and the communities in which we live, work and operate.
