  • Invest in renewable energy to meet 100% target by 2050
  • Reduce GHG emissions by 60% in operations (Scope 1 and Scope 2) and reduce customer GHG impacts >15% from IR products (Scope 3) by 2030
  • Reduce water use by 17% in operations by 2030
  • By 2030, eliminate, reduce or recycle >1 billion gallons of water annually in customer processes and applications through the use of our products
  • Achieve zero waste to landfill at >50% of current sites by 2030

“These goals underscore our strategic priority to operate sustainably across key areas of our business where we can make a powerful, lasting impact,” Reynal said. “These commitments will further unite our 16,000 employees through a shared sense of responsibility and purpose, bring value to our customers through product innovation and stewardship and make a positive difference toward protecting our communities and the world.”
