Environmental Actions

We are uniquely positioned to tackle our planet’s biggest environmental challenges.

We’re increasing energy efficiency, reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and improving water management.

Iceberg

Addressing Climate Change

As part of our commitments, we developed goals to help keep the global temperature increase below two degrees Celsius.

Product Life Cycle

Many of our products are built to operate for 15 to 20 years. That’s why we’ve developed a product life-cycle assessment to meet current and future environmental needs.
Conveyor belts

Materials

When sourcing materials for our products, we’ve developed a supply-chain transparency model that focuses on sustainability.
Water Plant

Water

We’ve reduced overall water use by 5.5 percent company-wide, and we’ve seen a 1.5 percent decrease in water use at sites located in water-stressed regions.
Waste Pickup

Waste

In our pledge to reduce waste, 24 of our manufacturing sites achieved zero waste to landfill in 2018. We also increased our recycling rate by more than 11 percent.

In our business, it’s about doing what is right for the environment — and improving quality of life.

We’re focusing on reducing greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions across our business portfolio.

The Gigaton Challenge

We’re reducing one gigaton of carbon emissions (CO2e) from our customers’ footprint by 2030. Join us
