Sustainability Summit

Empowering Pumps & Equipment is committed to working towards achieving sustainable development goals as outlined by the UN. We are able to do this using our thought leadership and advocacy in our industry to bring about these conversations and highlight the ones in our industry who are putting in the work to create a more sustainable world for all. During our Sustainability Summit, we talked about Circularity, the Energy Transition, How to Influence Inclusion, and having an open and candid discussion around Sustainable actions that everyone can get involved in.
