Pillar goal

We understand our shared responsibility to address climate change and other key environmental sustainability issues. To reduce our environmental footprint and deliver product and service solutions that support a low-carbon economy, we will:

  • Reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by lowering our energy consumption (electricity, gas and fuels) and seeking renewable and other lower-impact energy sources
  • Work to protect the environment by preventing pollution from production and logistics, avoiding or minimizing waste generation, and promoting the use of environmentally preferable products and packaging
  • Monitor and manage our environmental impact by tracking our energy and water use, waste generation, recycling and other related activities and taking action to reduce our impact
  • Raise associate awareness of these commitments, including training on our environmental responsibilities
  • Comply with the requirements of relevant legislation and regulations
  • Engage with key stakeholders on important environmental issues and serve as a reliable partner for customers, suppliers, the environment, and the society we live in — including identifying ways that our services and products can reduce environmental impact
