ESG at nVent

En nVent, creemos que los sistemas más seguros garantizan un mundo más seguro.

La infraestructura mundial cada vez es más eléctrica, impulsada por la tecnología y la necesidad de soluciones más sostenibles. Whether it is the modernization of the power grid, rising demand for renewable energy, expansion of broadband or the shift to electric vehicles, these trends are driving the need for our innovative products and solutions.   

ESG has been a critical part of who we are and how we have operated since the beginning of our company. At nVent, we focus our ESG efforts in three areas: People, Products and Planet. We have made meaningful progress across these pillars. These efforts will continue as we seek to reinforce our culture, develop innovative and sustainable solutions and do our part to combat global climate change.
