Emerson is dedicated to our core purpose of developing solutions for the world’s most complex challenges – and through our problem solving, to leave the world in a better place than we found it. We have always taken great pride in having safe and efficient operations, and recognize we have a role to play in the global effort to manage energy use effectively and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Emerson has committed to reducing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 20%, normalized to sales, across over 200 of our global manufacturing facilities by the year 2028. This target was developed in partnership with environmental experts to demonstrate our progress toward reducing emissions while accounting for growth and changes across our dynamic global business.
This target reinforces how seriously we take our role in transforming the industries we serve, as well as our own company, into more sustainable businesses.
To achieve the 20% reduction goal, Emerson will provide facilities with tools and resources to implement new energy-saving measures while continuing ongoing environmental training to equip colleagues with knowledge on best practices for reducing energy waste and conserving energy. In addition, progress by business unit will be formally integrated into our business operations review process.
In the year ahead, we will be especially focused on reducing GHG emissions at our larger facilities. With the insights gained from improving energy efficiency at these facilities, we plan to develop new approaches to reducing GHG emissions across our global footprint.
We look forward to reporting on our progress, success stories and challenges as we seek to achieve this emissions reduction goal.
