We not only help customers shape and achieve their sustainability goals, we lead by example. We optimize our own operations to reduce our environmental impact by lowering energy use, carbon emissions, and materials.
Efficient resource use in operations benefits our cost structure and communities affected by our environmental impact.
We look beyond compliance to reduce our environmental footprint by identifying resource efficiencies across our operations.
As a result of our ambitious targets and robust management processes, we are a leader in energy efficiency and carbon emissions reduction. Results from a streamlined lifecycle-based assessment suggest the biggest operational impact to mitigate involves energy use and GHG emissions.
Our latest assessment of sustainability issues identified one prioritized factor for which we set goals: energy and carbon management
We also identified two factors on the horizon: hazardous materials and chemicals management, and remediation.
Energy and carbon management
Efforts to manage energy and GHG emissions associated with company operations, including efforts to promote energy efficiency, use of renewable energy, and the offset of emissions.
Hazardous materials and chemicals management
Efforts to manage and reduce, from sourcing to discharge, hazardous or harmful materials and chemicals in our own operations and throughout our supply chain, including compliance with REACH and other applicable legislation.
Efforts to remediate any negative impacts on the environment and/or environmental liabilities resulting from legacy operations or acquisitions.
