Our Carbon Zero objective is to achieve 100% carbon neutral energy for our operations by 2025 (against a 2018 baseline). With the need for climate action more urgent than ever before, we’re energized to tackle our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across all three scopes. In 2022, we raised the bar by establishing our first Scope 3 emissions reduction goal.
Learn more about our collaborations with suppliers, customers, and others to reduce our carbon footprint and work toward our Carbon Zero objective.
From metals to packaging to production materials, we take a circular approach to reduce our environmental impact in order to “close the loop” on the products we create and the materials we use. Where practicable, we incorporate recycled, biodegradable, or otherwise sustainable content into our products and packaging and enable material reuse when our products reach end-of-life. It’s the right thing to do for our ecosystems and climate — and it’s a smart, sustainable, and cost-effective way to continue Growing Green.
