2022 ESG Highlights
Committing to Net Zero impact of our operations by 2030 and creating shared value throughout the product life cycle
100% of large manufacturing sites achieved 10-year commitment to be Zero Waste to Landfill.
~25% GHG emissions reduction in our plants and operations (scopes 1 and 2) compared to 2021.
100% of our electricity consumption by U.S. plants expected to be covered by the activation of two off-site virtual power purchase agreements.
We continue to leverage our global product architectures to improve consumer-relevant attributes, including performance, usable capacity, energy and water efficiency and to reduce our scope 3, category 11 emissions.
