ESG

Working for a safer, more sustainable future.

Our Philosophy

Better Innovation, Better Society, Better Planet, Better Team

People at the heart.

We believe that centering our approach to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) around our people is the best way to unleash our collective potential, accelerate progress for all of our stakeholders, and fulfill our powerful purpose: mobilizing the future to create a better world.

At the heart of our efforts is investing in a better team through our organization-wide commitment to inclusion, diversity & equity and prioritizing our team members’ health, wellbeing, safety, growth, and sense of belonging and purpose. Focusing on our people inspires them to create better innovations specifically designed to make the world safer, smarter, and more sustainable, paving the way to a better planet and, ultimately, a better society for all.

Our Actions

Materiality assessments. 

We began our ESG journey with a comprehensive, data-driven analysis to identify our top ESG priorities, such as the gloabl transitions to renewable and alternative energy, diversity and inclusion, employee health and safety, integrity and compliance, governance, innovation, talent, and customer success. We use advanced technology and regular surveys for ongoing, data-driven materiality assessments.

Guiding principles.

At Vontier, we value action and measurable results, and as we embed ESG throughout our organization, we seek to ensure that people and planet are part of the equation for every business decision. We approach this world-changing work with the courage and conviction to try new things, learn from mistakes, and act with integrity, even when it means prioritizing long-term progress over short-term gain. 

We established these principles to guide our decisions: 

  • Employee-led: We believe putting people at the heart of our ESG efforts will maximize the impact we can have on the world. We also believe in the power of tapping into the passion of our employees to accelerate our impact.
  • Transparency and Accountability: We are committed to meaningful disclosures that increase over time. We hold ourselves accountable by embracing and sharing challenging, science-based targets.
  • Lead with VBS: We harness the power of the Vontier Business System (VBS) to accelerate our impact and drive sustainability throughout our operations.
