Climate Impact

Giles Martin

We're committed to action

Climate change poses a serious threat, so we've come up with a four-point plan to do our part that starts with listening to those at the forefront of this fight.

“ Our approach has always centered around listening to our communities — our employees, our customers and the communities we live in. ”

Step 1

Measure

We mapped greenhouse gas emissions across every aspect of our business, from the materials we source and how we travel to the way customers use our products. Our 2020 footprint amounted to 1,232,430 metric tons of CO2.

Emissions footprint

  • 75.2%

    How our products are used

  • 19.5%

    Supply chain

  • 3.9%

    Distribution

  • 1.4%

    Other

*Scope 3 emissions, as defined by the GHG Protocol , represent 99% of our overall footprint

Step 2

Cut

We'll reduce our emissions in the areas with the largest impact, creating measurable targets around energy efficiency, distribution, and our supply chain.

Product Energy Usage

We’ll develop solutions to reduce the energy consumption of our products while they are in use and when they are idle.

Distribution and Logistics

We’ll improve our distribution and logistics network to make it more efficient.

Supply Chain Contributions

We’ll work with our major suppliers to incorporate climate-friendly practices, such as switching to renewable energy sources.

Step 4

Net zero by 2040

As carbon capture technology advances, we'll shift our investments toward pulling greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, aiming to remove more than we emit and become climate positive.
