Energy and Environmental Stewardship
We have a strong commitment to environmental stewardship in our operations.
Our goals by 2020 are to:
- Reduce carbon emissions by 35%
- Reduce facility energy use by 25%
- Reduce water use by 30%
- Reduce total waste by 7%
- Increase recycling rate by 8%
These goals strengthen our industry leadership in the sustainability arena and align with the goals of U.S. federal agencies to meet energy, water and waste reduction targets by 2020. Our carbon and energy goals align with the U.K. Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme.
Our 2014 Go Green performance, compared to the 2010 baseline year.
