A Legacy of Responsible Innovation
As a company and as individuals, we are committed to achieving a positive economic and societal impact while being environmentally responsible. This focus on sustainability is directly aligned with our promise of Together, improving life, and our long-established values, culture and commitment to Associates, customers and communities.
Throughout our history, we’ve applied the principles of sound science to create products that improve the quality of life, including products that solve difficult environmental problems.
Working Toward a More Sustainable Future
We carefully consider the effects of our products and operations on the environment, as well as on the health and well-being of people. We strive to be good stewards of air, water, and energy resources and in our management of waste. Measurable environmental, health and safety objectives will be set by leadership, communicated to Associates, routinely reviewed and revised as needed to reflect current conditions.
Toward that end, we have committed to reduce our Greenhouse Gas emissions in order to do our part to address climate change. We’ve committed to reduce our absolute facility-related carbon emissions by 60% no later than 2030, and we’ll work toward carbon neutrality by 2050. These ambitious goals are guided by scientific evidence and consistent with the Paris Agreement and guidance from international experts that we must all strive to reduce carbon emissions to ensure the planet does not warm more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
As a community of Associates, it is part of our culture to do the right thing and use our creativity to make a difference in the world. As our planet faces societal and environmental challenges, we take seriously our responsibility to apply our unique expertise to create sustainable solutions that benefit generations to come.
