The zip commitment

In this day and age the importance of sustainability cannot be underestimated. Increasingly, sustainability is aligned with the objectives and ethos of many organisations - with Zip Water being no exception.

Owned by one of the leading global water companies, Culligan, at Zip we've worked to provide homes and workplaces with safe, clean and sustainable water. But today, the world faced a new range of challenges, from climate change to calls for greater equity. And there challenges require global effort, with individuals, corporations and governments working together to build a better world.

We've set out the steps we as a company have been taking to operate with an environmental and social conscience.

Commitment 01

Reducing plastic bottle
consumption in the workplace

Our products help people to reduce their reliance on single-use plastic bottles by encouraging the refill of bottles and glasses in both the home and workplace. To promote this refill culture in our own workplace, we provide all employees with Chilly's bottles so they can refill and refresh from our drinking water systems.

Lowering our
carbon footprint

At Zip, we have been working to replace all non-electric vehicles with either hybrid or fully electric equivalents. At present, 50% of our overall vehicle fleet are electric-powered and we have numerous charging units installed at our Norfolk office.

Commitment 03

Cutting-edge
energy-efficient products

Our HydroTaps contain energy efficient features such as a LUX (light) sensor, programmable timer and sleep modes to help conserve energy during periods of low or non-usage. The 5th generation HydroTap also uses a 0% global warming potential R290 refrigerant gas to keep water chilled.

The provision of safer
and cleaner water

As part of the Culligan group, we provide 50 million people with safer and cleaner drinking water annually. We have so far helped to deliver better water to over six million homes and 2.5 million offices in both developed and developing countries.

Commitment 05

Reducing carbon
emissions

Our products have been designed to help you achieve a lower carbon footprint. Did you know a kettle produces 73kg of carbon dioxide per year compared to a boiling and chilled HydroTap, which produces just over 25kg of carbon dioxide per year?
