KOHLER Water Filters Reach Over 15,000 Households

Partnerships Key to Providing Access to Safe Water


KOHLER, Wis. – March 22, 2017 – Since its first shipment of KOHLER Clarity water filters on World Water Day 2016, Kohler Co. has distributed over 15,000 filters to residents in 11 countries around the world. Each filter can provide up to 40 liters of safe water each day – enough for a small family. A global leader in the plumbing industry, Kohler developed the ceramic filtration system to provide an in-home solution for the 1.8 billion people who lack access to safe drinking water.

“Our success in getting filters into the hands of those who need them most has only been possible with the support of our key partners,” said Tim White, business development manager for water technologies at Kohler. “We believe the key to having a long-term impact on the safe water crisis is through global partnerships and sustainable business models.”

Kohler has partnered with humanitarian organizations Water Mission, World Vision, Rotary International and Operation Blessing to deliver filters to families across the world – from Vietnam to Ethiopia, Lebanon to Honduras, and to disaster victims in Louisiana and Haiti.

“The problem is greater than the lack of water,” said Laura Kohler, Senior Vice President – Human Resources and Stewardship for Kohler. “It’s the need to come together. The importance of partnership and action cannot be overstated. Governments, organizations and business must all work with the people impacted to develop solutions to address global issues.”

Kohler partnered with Water Mission to bring safe water to Haiti after Hurricane Matthew. This video tells the story. Donations to aid Water Mission in its efforts can be made at WaterMission.org/GiveWater.

Kohler Co. Pledges $1 Million Toward Lakeshore Community Health Care Expansion

KOHLER, Wis. – Nov. 10, 2016 – Kohler Co. has pledged $1 million to help Lakeshore Community Health Care enlarge its Saemann Avenue clinic and bring all medical, dental and behavioral health services under one roof. The expanded clinic will allow LCHC to double the number of patients it can serve over the next two years.

The company’s pledge, spread over four years, funds renovation of the Medical/Behavioral Health Wing, which will be named in Kohler’s honor. The gift will help improve the health of area residents, which in turn supports the overall health of the county’s economy.

“For Sheboygan County to be economically strong and maintain a strong employment base for the companies based here, it is critical that we work together to ensure all residents have access to comprehensive health care, because healthy families can more fully participate in education and employment opportunities,” said Laura Kohler, senior vice president of human resources and stewardship. “Kohler is proud to support the expansion of Lakeshore Community Health Care as part of our company’s overall commitment to supporting vibrant community growth and enriching the quality of life of people who live and work here.”

According to clinic leaders, more than 11,000 of the county’s 110,000 residents have no health insurance and another 17,000 have coverage under an Affordable Care Act high-deductible plan or BadgerCare (Medicaid), which can limit their medical provider options. When the expansion is complete next year, the clinic expects to double its patient load from 6,149 served in 2015 to nearly 13,000 by 2018. The clinic will expand its dental capacity to accommodate 900 dental patients on its wait list, as well as add pediatrics and OB/GYN specialties plus an in-house pharmacy.

“We are so proud of the support we have received from the community, and we are thrilled to see this project move forward,” said Kristin Blanchard Stearns, chief executive officer of LCHC. “Bringing all of our services under one roof will allow us to provide truly integrated care, with patients working with their doctor, dentist, and counselor to improve their health and their lives. There is tremendous need for health care services among under- and uninsured residents of Sheboygan County, and this project allows us to address that need in an important way.”

LCHC hopes to raise $6 million through this capital campaign. With contributions from Kohler, Aurora Health Care, an anonymous donor, and other supporters, the campaign has reached more than half of its goal.

Kohler partners with Lava Mae to bring mobile showers to homeless community

Mobile hygiene program expands to Los Angeles with bath product donation from Kohler

KOHLER, Wis. – October 6, 2016 – Based on the most recent Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, there are more than 46,000 individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County on any given night. Living on the street means not only finding a place to sleep and a source of food, but often going days or even weeks without the basic dignity of a hot shower or access to restrooms.

Kohler Co. is partnering with nonprofit organization Lava Mae to bring its mobile showering service to Los Angeles with an in-kind donation of KOHLER plumbing products.

Founded in San Francisco in 2014, Lava Mae converts retired city buses into mobile hygiene facilities to deliver showers and rekindle dignity to those experiencing homelessness. Kohler supported its initial launch with bath fixtures and faucets to retrofit city buses, which have since served 2,300 San Franciscans who have taken 14,000+ showers on the mobile units.

“As a company that seeks to offer consumers gracious living experiences through its beautifully designed and superbly crafted bath products, Kohler embraced the opportunity to reach disadvantaged individuals who don’t have access to the basic dignity of a private, hygienic toilet and regular showers,” said Rob Zimmerman, director of sustainability. 

The Los Angeles mobile unit will be a commercial trailer with three private toilet and showering stalls. KOHLER products donated to the project include sinks, faucets, toilets and a digital showering system that operates on a timer to maximize the number of guests who can use Lava Mae’s service. All are WaterSense®-labeled products that meet or exceed California Energy Commission water-efficiency requirements.

“Our partnership with Kohler enabled us to successfully launch and scale in San Francisco, and now we are able to expand to Los Angeles and bring much-needed mobile hygiene services to those moving through homelessness,” said Lava Mae Founder & CEO Doniece Sandoval. “Kohler’s early, enthusiastic, and steadfast support for Lava Mae’s mission to take radical hospitality to the street is an excellent example of how nonprofit/for-profit collaborations can successfully innovate new ways to meet the needs of our homeless neighbors.”

About LavaMae
Lava Mae is taking “radical hospitality” to the street, and bringing humanity, innovation, and collaboration to the way services are provided to those experiencing homelessness. Founded in San Francisco in 2014, Lava Mae began by converting public transportation buses into showers and toilets on wheels to deliver hygiene and rekindle dignity. We've since deepened our work by innovating new programs to dramatically increase access to vital services on the street – where people are.

To-date, Lava Mae has touched the lives of 2,300 San Franciscans who have taken 14,000+ showers on their mobile units, inspired replication of their hygiene services, and dramatically raised awareness about the lack of showers among the broader community across the U.S. and around the globe.

Kohler’s water conservation efforts earn EPA WaterSense® recognition

Agency recognizes Kohler with fourth Sustained Excellence award for its commitment to action and consumer education

KOHLER, Wis. – October 6, 2016 – Kohler Co. has earned its fourth Sustained Excellence Award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Kohler, the leading manufacturer of kitchen and bath plumbing products in the U.S., has long been dedicated to producing efficient, innovative products that are at the forefront of the industry. The company was recognized for its efforts in promoting the EPA’s WaterSense® program and encouraging consumers to use less water in their homes.

In 2008, the EPA named Kohler the first recipient of its WaterSense Manufacturer Partner of the Year Award.  In each year since, Kohler has earned additional recognition from the EPA, including the agency’s first Sustained Excellence award in 2013.

“Kohler has encouraged water conservation since the 1970s,” said Rob Zimmerman, Director-Marketing, Sustainability. “Receiving recognition from the EPA year over year demonstrates our continuing commitment to water-saving initiatives, consumer education and product innovation.”

Since the first WaterSense-labeled KOHLER products were introduced, those products have empowered consumers to reduce water use by over 110 billion gallons and save over $1.3 billion in water, sewer and energy costs. The labels make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase products that save water while maintaining the performance excellence and sophisticated design for which Kohler has long been renowned.

In recognizing Kohler with this year’s award, the EPA highlighted Kohler’s creativity in promoting water efficiency and WaterSense-labeled products. To reach 2,000 San Francisco residents in need, Kohler partnered with Lava Mae on mobile showering stations featuring working models of WaterSense-labeled showerheads, toilets, and faucets. Kohler's showering stations were also installed at Bonnaroo, a four-day music festival in Tennessee with more than 100,000 concert-goers, which Kohler promoted via an extensive social media campaign. The company continued promoting WaterSense-labeled products and messaging throughout the year with two Facebook campaigns, one centered around Earth Day and one a water-saving campaign resulting in more than 3.5 million impressions.

Kohler's "Bold Experience Tour" mobile travelling display visited 101 locations in 21 states. The semi-trailer, outfitted with working models of WaterSense-labeled toilets, faucets, and showerheads, exposed consumers and more than 14,500 plumbing professionals to the benefits of WaterSense-labeled products. Kohler also partnered with Lowe's Home Improvement, a WaterSense retail partner, on a national "Kohler Big Event" marketing campaign that featured WaterSense-labeled toilets, faucets, and showerheads. In addition to its marketing campaign, Kohler collaborated with WaterSense promotional partner Puget Sound Energy to provide WaterSense-labeled showerhead rebate information at local retail stores in the greater Seattle area.

The company also contributed to the Plumbing Efficiency Research Coalition's study on the drainline transport of solid waste in commercial buildings. Kohler engineers provided key analytical guidance to help understand the impacts of lower flush volumes and other variables on wastewater system performance.

Kohler takes action to curb California water use

U.S. plumbing leader showcases new solutions and community project
at 2016 Greenbuild Conference and Expo in Los Angeles

KOHLER, Wis. – Sep. 27, 2016 – As the state of California continues to deal with water shortages, restrictions, and a new regulation for home sales, global plumbing brand Kohler is sharing the latest sustainable products and stewardship projects at theGreenbuild International Conference and Expo, held Oct. 5-7 at
the Los Angeles Convention Center.

As platinum sponsor of the conference, the company will highlight innovations from the KOHLER, STERLING and KOHLER Power brands, including a California Solutions Residential Suite, which showcases KOHLER products that meet or exceed California water efficiency requirements. One new requirement that takes effect in 2017 requires plumbing fixtures to be updated to water-saving models when homes are sold.

In addition to new water-saving products, Kohler is also encouraging attendees and the public to curb personal water use by pledging to #CommittoSix to reduce their shower time to six minutes. The average American adult spends 8 minutes in the shower, using about 18 gallons of water each time they lather up.* For every pledge made on kohler.com/commit, Kohler will donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy.

At the conference, Kohler will also share details around its partnership with Lava Mae to expand its mobile shower program to the Los Angeles homeless population. Commercial trailers are being retrofitted with KOHLER WaterSense®-labeled showers, sinks and toilets. Launched first in San Francisco, Lava Mae delivers showers and rekindles dignity to those experiencing homelessness through its mobile hygiene services.

Additional educational activities and information the company will highlight at the conference and in the Kohler booth (#1401) include:
· Kohler’s newest water-conserving toilet, the Highline 1.0 gallon per flush (gpf) toilet, which optimizes water flow and timing to maximize performance while reducing water use by 35 percent compared to a 1.6 gpf toilet.
· Four 1.0 gpf commercial toilets, a solar-powered portable generator, and two models of the Exhale B90 showerhead.
· Demos and tips for homeowners and industry professionals from Ed Del Grande, Master Plumber and LEED Green Associate.
· Complimentary LEED consultations to attendees wishing to understand indoor water prerequisites and credit calculations in project designs.
· Highlights from Kohler’s collaboration with Whirlpool Corporation to research home water use at the ReNEWW House. The project has yielded a year of data on residents’ water use patterns and the effectiveness of grey water collection, which will provide insight into new water conservation solutions.
· Working models of Kohler’s ceramic filtration system, KOHLER Clarity, and the Closed-Loop Advanced Sanitation System (CLASS). Clarity and CLASS showcase Kohler’s commitment to supporting UN Sustainable Development Goal #6 to ensure access to clean water and sanitation for people globally.

As a platinum sponsor of Greenbuild, Kohler has a strong presence outside its booth as well. On Tuesday, October 4, Staff Engineer Cambria McLeod will present Onsite Water Reuse, Water Infrastructure + Society during WaterBuild, The Water Summit. On Wednesday, October 5, Kohler Senior Staff Sustainability Engineer Joe Azzarello will join sustainability leaders at Intel, Transwestern and CH2M on Addressing the Drought: Commercial, Industrial, and Homes.

Kohler Co. Named One of the Most Important Private Companies

Fortune magazine lists Kohler Co. # 22, touting “highly influential” impact on kitchen and bath design

KOHLER, Wis. – June 9, 2016 – For the first time, Fortune magazine published its list of the 25 most important privately held companies—and Kohler Co. is No. 22.

Editors explain that “the time has come to recognize the hugely significant contributions of those corporations that choose not to sell their stock to the public.”

“As a privately held company, we give ourselves the freedom to look ahead, to plan for the long term,” said David Kohler, President & CEO. “It’s how we’ve been able to contribute this level of strategic thinking, innovation and leading-edge design to our markets.”

Fortune chose this list of companies, most of them based in the United States, on several criteria, including prodigious revenues or assets, social currency, deep connection to our daily lives and disruptive impact. The Kohler Co. profile alludes to the success of the company’s kitchen and bathroom business as the driver for the ranking, stating that “bathroom fixtures are used by U.S. construction firms more often than any other brand,” as well as growth in China extending Kohler’s reach and serving as the company’s second-largest market.

“We are proud to receive this recognition as a company, but we cannot forget that it’s our associates who deserve the praise. They are the ones using their skills and creativity to bring meaningful innovation and solutions to our consumers around the world. That is what makes us memorable,” said Laura Kohler, Senior Vice President – Human Resources & Stewardship.

Founded in 1873 and headquartered in Kohler, Wis., Kohler Co. is one of America’s oldest and largest privately held companies.  Kohler is a global leader in kitchen and bath products, engines and power generation systems, furniture and decorative tile, and an international host to award-winning hospitality and world-class golf destinations.

Kohler launches six-minute shower challenge to Bonnaroo attendees

#CommitToSix campaign supports The Nature Conservancy river restoration project

KOHLER, Wis. – According to research from the EPA WaterSense® program, the average American adult spends 8 minutes in the shower, using about 18 gallons of water each time they lather up.* Kohler, a global leader in the manufacture of kitchen and bath products, encourages consumers to reduce their water usage by 25 percent by cutting their shower time by two minutes.

As part of its sponsorship of the shower facilities at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee June 9-12, Kohler urges concertgoers to take the #CommitToSix pledge before they shower, and sing along with the KOHLER Moxie Bluetooth-enabled showerheads in the facilities. For every pledge made at kohler.com/commit, Kohler in partnership with the festival’s nonprofit charitable organization, Bonnaroo Works Fund, will donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy, up to $10,000. The donation will support restoration of the nearby Duck River, which winds through the middle of Tennessee and is the water source for the Bonnaroo festival. In addition, Kohler encourages attendees and consumers across the U.S. to install WaterSense-labeled showerheads in their homes if they haven’t already, which can further reduce water use by 20 percent or more.**  

Last year 36,000 Bonnaroo attendees took showers during the four-day festival, and Kohler hopes many will choose to make the #CommitToSix pledge this year. In addition, the campaign extends beyond the event itself. All music lovers and water-conscious consumers can join the effort by visiting kohler.com/commit between June 6 and August 31 and pledging to reduce their shower time.

“Whether you sing in the shower or not, pledging to cut just a few minutes of shower time is a simple way that festival-goers, music fans and everyone else can reduce water use,” says Rob Zimmerman, senior manager of sustainability at Kohler. “It’s important for people to understand that the amount of water they use directly impacts the quality and health of the local rivers and lakes where they live, and in many parts of the country, the very ability to have enough water for the community.”

The Duck River, like many waterways in growing population centers, faces increased storm-water runoff, sewage treatment discharge, and chemical runoff from farmland. Since 1999 the Nature Conservancy has worked to conserve this resource with local communities by developing “smart growth” land-use plans, addressing water supply issues, and providing financial assistance to farmers to manage river banks and protect aquatic life. Today the Duck River is a healthy river for wildlife while also serving as a water source for more than 250,000 people.

Kohler Co. and the Kohler Trust for Preservation have worked with The Nature Conservancy on previous water restoration efforts, including projects in Wisconsin where Kohler Co. is headquartered. With a long history of supporting water efficiency and sustainability in its products, the company sponsors numerous educational programs and awareness campaigns to encourage responsible use of water supplies. Kohler is a member of the Alliance for Water Efficiency and the U.S. Green Building Council and has been recognized by the EPA WaterSense program for excellence and partnership in each of the last eight years.
