Koppers Reduces Emissions by 49.5%

Koppers, an integrated global provider of treated wood products, wood treatment chemicals, and carbon compounds, realized a 49.5% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions since 2007.

The company also conducted a Scope 3 screening and increased renewable energy consumption. 

Koppers released details in its inaugural Climate Report, which was prepared in accordance with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and outlines the company's progress on climate-related disclosures. The company will continue to use the TCFD recommendations to inform its efforts and stands behind its initial reporting using the TCFD as a reporting framework for climate disclosure.

This report supplements Koppers' 2022 Corporate Sustainability Report and details the company's strategic plans to mitigate climate risk by strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity, enhancing emissions reduction efforts, and advancing a climate-forward culture for both the business and stakeholders. 

"Reporting in alignment with TCFD bolsters our ongoing commitment to our Sustainability goals in the areas of People, Planet and Performance," said Koppers Chief Sustainability Officer, Leslie Hyde, in a statement. "It also represents an important step for Koppers as we move forward with mitigating the implications of climate change and bringing additional sustainable opportunities to our business operations. Our intent remains to expand Koppers' current level of climate action and increase transparency with relevant stakeholders, industry peers, and investors."
