Deere & Company Posts 29% GHG Reduction
Deere & Company announced it made progress toward its emission goals by achieving a 29% cumulative reduction of operational GHG gas emissions since 2017, surpassing its original goal of 15%.
The farm equipment company increased its waste recycling to 84% and surpassed its 2022 renewable electricity goal of 50%.
Deere committed to science-based Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG reduction targets, which were validated during the year by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Deere is investing in alternative power solutions across its broad portfolio of products, such as electrification, hybrid technology, and biofuels, to deliver on its goal of reducing tailpipe emissions.
"We're focused on providing customers with solutions that are both economically and environmentally sustainable. Solutions like See & Spray Ultimate and ExactShot use advanced technology to do exactly this, reducing input costs while also lowering greenhouse gas emissions," said Deere's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John C. May in a statement.
