Energy Management: An exciting acceleration
toward Net Zero Emissions
In line with our World Class Manufacturing (WCM) efforts, we have continued to drive focus and progress toward reducing our emissions, water intensity and energy intensity.
- Completed more than 450 projects in 2022, delivering greater than 8% reduction in energy cost.
Our actions related to energy efficiency are aligned to and driven by our Net Zero commitment to achieve Net Zero emissions in our plants and operations by 2030. This commitment covers the direct (scope 1) and power-related (scope 2) emissions in our large manufacturing sites and distribution centers worldwide. In our operations, we plan to achieve greater reductions in emissions by continuing our strong focus on environmental and energy management, and through a continued focus on WCM methodologies.
Energy Management is one of the seven pillars in our WCM production system. Each site has a reduction target of at least 3% year over year. The plant WCM Energy pillar teams are our primary execution resource for identifying and executing projects. Our energy-reduction projects aim to reduce energy costs, improve energy efficiency and drive C02 reductions.
|Energy from renewable sources (gigajoules)||113,895||127,023||147,493|
|% of total energy sourced from renewable sources||1.6%||1.7%||2.5%|
|Total energy (gigajoules)||7,144,184||7,467,571||5,936,104|
|Energy intensity (megajoules/product)||133.4||140.6||151.4|
|GHG emissions intensity scopes 1 and 2 (mtCO2e/product)||0.0124||0.0115||0.0118|
We experienced a significant decrease in total energy globally in 2022, driven primarily in North America and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). These reductions are the result of the continuous energy management and reduction projects led through the plant WCM Energy pillar teams, as well as a reduction in production volumes. For example, in 2022 the NAR region completed over 450 projects that delivered 8% energy cost savings.
Solar Installation IN INDIA
Solar energy projects
Our Faridabad site is consistently working to increase its solar generation capacity. The site has newly installed 450 KW of solar on its washer plant and now has a total installed capacity of 2,450 KW.
The Pondicherry site is the third in the region to start using renewables after all local regulatory approvals. The site has installed a 605 KW solar plant on the warehouse and line 3 roof.
