- Avoided 21 million metric tons of our customers’ CO2e, which is the equivalent of avoiding 3.7 coal-fired power plants
- Reduced our own operational emissions by 45 percent, which achieved our Climate Commitment for operations two years early
- Reduced energy intensity by 22 percent
“In 2013 we made a choice to be a sustainability leader, starting with our Climate Commitment,” said Paul Camuti, our company's executive vice president and chief technology and strategy officer. “By the numbers it’s been an incredible story, but what’s most exciting is that now when we evaluate a proposed course of action, we do it through a sustainability lens which reflects the strategy and vision of our company. We ask ourselves, ‘Is it an energy- and resource-efficient solution that creates value for our customers? Will it reduce our environmental impact as an organization? Will it contribute to a better world?’”
Much more than climate and energy
Our sustainability journey has spanned beyond our climate and efficiency work in our operations through our supply chain, our workforce and our communities.
Diverse and inclusive is sustainable
We’re proud that we’ve continued to progress our diversity and inclusion efforts, with women holding nearly 22 percent of our management positions. And four out of 12 of our board of directors are women. In fact, we have more women on our board of directors than average companies on the Russell 3000, the reference index for women on boards.
In March 2017, our company joined the Paradigm for Parity coalition, the first of our peer group to do so. By joining, we pledged our commitment to bring gender parity to our global corporate leadership structure by 2030. We followed up by pledging to cultivate diversity and inclusion in the workplace through the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.
