Xylem employees celebrate inaugural Global Month of Service by logging more than 7,000 volunteer hours with local organizations

Activities addressed water needs in communities around the world

RYE BROOK, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–To commemorate its fifth anniversary, Xylem (NYSE:XYL), a leading global
water technology company dedicated to solving the world’s most
challenging water issues, launched its inaugural Global Month of
Service. The initiative aimed to advance Xylem’s commitment to build a
culture of volunteerism across the company, and to provide opportunities
for employees globally to further contribute to the company’s mission of
solving water. Earlier this year, Xylem announced an ambitious goal of
having employees contribute 100,000 volunteer hours over three years to
water-related causes.

Throughout the month of October, employees participated in more than 100
water-related volunteer activities around the globe, which generated
more than 7,000 volunteer hours. These activities aligned with the
mission and vision of Xylem’s corporate citizenship program, Xylem
Watermark, which is committed to providing and protecting safe water
resources for communities in need and educating people about water

In addition to volunteering, Xylem colleagues selected 18 local
organizations to receive a $1,000 Community Grant and they collectively
contributed more than $100,000 in personal donations to Xylem
Watermark’s global nonprofit partners.

“Our inaugural global Month of Service has been a great way for our
colleagues to learn about, address, and educate others on water issues
in their communities and around the world,” said Colin Sabol, Senior
Vice President and Chairman of the Xylem Watermark Committee. “Support
for Watermark has been an essential part of building our culture of
engagement and volunteerism here at Xylem, and has brought us
significantly closer to our goal of logging 100,000 employee volunteer
hours by the end of 2018.”

Xylem’s employee volunteer goal was launched as part of a renewed
commitment to engage employees through community involvement and
volunteerism. Catalyzing this spirit of service has helped employees
connect global water issues to their local communities and has allowed
Xylem to make a greater impact on those communities across the globe.
