By using more efficient and innovative processing methods and technologies, we’re reducing the amount of energy, water and raw materials we use to make our products, thereby minimizing the amount of waste we generate.
We design and make products in a safe, effective and environmentally sound manner
We maintain a highly trained and capable scientific staff and actively pursue manufacturing process improvements that minimize environmental impacts.
Our environmental sustainability goals by the numbers
Greenhouse gas emissions reductions
We've committed to the Science Based Targets initiative to set a net-zero target for our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This will help reduce economic and public health risks associated with a changing climate and help position our company to succeed in an increasingly resource-constrained world.
Water is a key input to our manufacturing operations, so we assess water risk throughout our network as a standard business practice. We're employing various technologies and techniques aimed at reducing our water footprint and improving operational performance.
We continuously evaluate our sites’ waste disposal methods to gain a better understanding of our network and changes therein. We also identify risks and opportunities in our value chain.
Environmental sustainability and our suppliers
To help meet our important environmental goals, it's critical that we partner with each other to align on expectations and to collect the right data in a timely manner.
We expect suppliers to commit to:
- – Measuring Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions and report CO2 e data specific to our company by no later than 2025
- – Setting GHG reduction target(s) aligned with the criteria set by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) by 2026
- – Planning to achieve net zero no later than 2050
